Resource Optimisation is a strategic process used by businesses to maximize the productivity and efficiency of their workforce, equipment, and other operational resources. It involves planning, scheduling, and allocating resources in a manner that minimises waste, reduces costs, and increases efficiency and profitability. Resource Optimisation, when done effectively, ensures that resources are used at their full capacity and are not over or underutilised.
Why do we need Resource Optimisation?
We need Resource Optimisation to ensure that the available resources in an organisation are used effectively and efficiently. It helps to eliminate wasted time, effort, and money by ensuring that each resource is put to the best possible use. Moreover, it aids in avoiding bottlenecks, reducing downtime, and improving overall productivity. Furthermore, it allows for a more balanced workload, preventing burnout among employees and maintaining high levels of employee satisfaction and engagement.
