Software from XIMES: The Operating Hours Assistant (OPA)

Calculate personnel requirements professionally and quickly

Suitable services for every need in the shortest time!

Working time management is aimed at systematically matching personnel requirements with the personnel capacity deployed. For this purpose, the need for seasons, fluctuating workload, qualifications, ... be easy to present and discuss (when exactly how much needs to be done often requires a negotiation process). On the other hand, there are variants of working hours and staffing levels with which the stored demand can be covered in the best possible way, i.e. in addition to legal requirements (e.g. maximum lengths for services), ergonomics (e.g. earliest possible start of service, average number of working days per week), administration (e.g. number of different types of service) and the minimisation of over- and under-coverage for the purpose of economic efficiency must be taken into consideration.   

How does XIMES OPA support?

In practice, this is a constantly repeating process, a constant optimization. With the XIMES OPA, the standard software for calculating personnel requirements and suitable services, this cycle remains productive:

  • Easier to analyze and optimize needs and processes

  • Define or generate services and staffing levels

  • Calculate reserve and personnel requirements
