Without the right tools, it can be difficult to maintain a clear overview of your staff’s qualifications and certification requirements – especially when you’re overseeing 20,000 employees, spread out over 2,000 teams.

A skilled workforce is vital to your business’s success. If your teams lack the necessary skills for the job, it exposes your business to risks such as:
- Loss of productivity
- Safety hazards
- Increased production costs
- Legal and compliance-related implications
Specific certifications vary depending on the products and processes your company works with, as well as your location(s). With AG5 skills management software, you can monitor the status of any type of certification that is relevant to your workforce. Some common examples include:
- Certifications to handle specific tools and machinery
- Workplace health-and-safety training
- Company-specific (internal) certifications
Each team requires the right set of skills to perform effectively. Some skills are highly specific to the team. For example, team members may require training to handle specific machines or processes. As manufacturing transitions to the age of Industry 5.0, technical and IT-related skills are becoming increasingly important. At the same time, mechanical, engineering and soft skills (such as communication and conflict resolution) are always important.
Not every member of the team needs to have all the same skills. Your skills matrix helps you ensure that the right skills are distributed among your team members. It also helps you identify missing skills, so you can provide additional training or expand your team as needed.
With the rise of Industry 5.0, manufacturers will rely more heavily on robotics and intelligent machines to drive productivity. Your employees will need a broader range of technical skills to work effectively alongside new data-driven equipment. Analytical skills enable employees to spot opportunities to streamline operations. This helps your teams to work more efficiently, saving time and money, while optimizing your use of resources.
