Leveraging Work Systems
Work system snapshot for DM2 petroleum specific company.
The DM2 work system allows us to create a complete accounting system or SOP for the customer that is constructed to meet the client's needs. It goes over every aspect of petroleum marketing to provide the client with a top-down, comprehensive assessment. We provide custom programming for individual marketers and retailers for regulating petroleum services.
Because all clients' needs are unique, the work system is oriented towards identifying the needs of the customer and creating a program that fits that client. This allows the customer to experience automated technology, the creative process of which he is allowed to oversee.
The SOP involved in each customer's order is truly one-of-a-kind, so to begin with the customer meets with employees who perform a question and answer session with the client to identify particular wants. This is then entered into the DM2 software, which explores possible scenarios. An individual profile is then created for the client which allows us to map and match a correct SOP for that customer.
Essentially, the work system is modeled on identifying the needs of the customer first rather than issuing a one-size-fits-all product to the customer and tailoring that to fit. With DM2, the customer's variables are used to create a new programming...
Its main technology is the software program designed to accept new data that is then incorporated in an overall ISO which is tied to the KPI. The performance indicators are geared towards providing customer satisfaction so that no loop is unclosed loose ends are tied.

Areas for Improvement in Each of the Four Domains:
1. Work Practices: Inter-departmental communication should be improved
2. Participants: Skills should be utilized more fully by bringing them in to various departments as needed
3. Information: Misinterpretations of information should be eliminated by opening up the Communication/information flow channels
4. Technology: Organizational functionality should be improved
5. Work Systems as a Whole: Management should show better leadership and more accountability in order to facilitate these improvements
Mapping the Areas for Improvement to Work Systems Principles
Work practice improvements regarding inter-department communication align with Work System Principle #4: Perform the work efficiently.
Participant improvements regarding the utilization of skills align with Work System…
The Shared Information Principle is also the most reliant on technologies, with the Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) and communications technologies being the most crucial within this specific principle. The Principle of Knowledge Development The most strategically important aspect of any HPWS, this principle is where the greatest value is delivered to an enterprise. Knowledge Development is heavily dependent on the training aspects of an organization, including instruction in broad skills,
The worker on a fast line such as a candy cane maker has little control over their environment. They must perform more like machines themselves. The welder on an auto manufacturing line may have more control over their environment. For instance they may make the welds necessary and then press a button to send the car on down the line. They control how fast the line moves. However, it is
Wood indicates that "everyone has different motivations and aspirations that they wish to achieve in their life. Work-life balance is about adjustments that can be made to working patterns to enable people to combine work with the other facets of their life. Bratton and Gold (2003: 105) de-ne work-life balance as, 'the relationship between the institutional and cultural times and spaces of work and non-work in societies where income
System Feedback Loops Reinforcing Loop Reinforcing Loop reflects the ability of one action to produce an outcome that influences more of the similar action thus resulting into eventual growth or decline (Bellinger, 2004). Reinforcing loop represents one of the foundational structures in relation to systems of thinking. Virtuous Cycle is the ability of reinforcing loop structure to produce desirable result in the process of its application. In the incidence of desired result,
The religious organization has other-worldly goals, but must adapt to the demands of this world in order to survive. There are generally two kinds of responses to this problem -- the church response and the sect response. The church response is to adapt at the expense of the goals and the sect response is value-rational-to maximize goal commitment at the expense of adaptation (Satow, 1975). EXAMPLE NATURAL -- Management NEED
System optimization can also apply to the organization itself where the primary goal is profit maximization. Since an organization also runs as a system, it is important to get all its resources pooled together in the manner that best meets the specific needs of the organization. Optimization thus should not be confused with speed, increased activity, higher technology etc. We know a system is working well when it is meeting
