manufacturing training system

Written by Gosia Henderson on 25 August 2017

Hi, I’m looking to introduce a training management system for multisite manufacturing operations. I don't have any experience with this topic and I wonder if you know of any solutions that would be worth recommending? I’m searching for a software that would allow managing everything in one location (or as much as possible), that including skills gap analysis for all employees, planning and managing training sessions, storing of training materials, verification of training delivery, evaluation of training effectiveness, and finally reporting of training KPIs. I’d really appreciate if you could let me know if there is any system that you have come across and that you found useful and user friendly. Or perhaps something that you’ve heard of that would be good to explore in more details, I’ll follow every lead! Thank you in advance for your help! Gosia

Hi Gosia,

That is a lot in a system! I'm currently researching systems myself, for another need, and finding it challenging.

One that springs to mind is Lentum. I haven't used it myself, but I think the software covers the skills gap and the KPI measurement stuff. I'm not sure about holding the training material, but that's something you could look up on their website or ask them about. It's  http://lentum.com/

Lentum also did some research on the topic, which I've mentioned at the end of this Forum discussion: https://www.trainingjournal.com/forum/tj-forum/how-can-we-get-line-managers-engage-and-support-what-their-staff-are-learning

The other thing you could think about, is whether there are different open source systems that you could pay a development company to bring together for you. It's not something I know a lot about, but I know some people find it a useful approach.

On a side note, I updated the spelling in the message title for you - it's something that you can't do on the Forum normally as it changes the hyperlink to the message.

Regards,

Hi Gosia, 

Following your post & Jo's comment, I would be delighted to help in any way I can. Please email me at enquiries@lentum.com and perhaps we can set up a call/meeting to discuss your requirements further. ​

HI Gosia

For training management systems as opposed to LMS or learning transfer platforms then take a look at Enterprise Study and Access Plan IT.    We use the former and were impressed with the latter when reviewing.
