Do you remember last time when you visited a bank, a hospital, an event, a train or metro station? Or simply waiting for a lift to come?
Do you remember what a mess that place was because everybody was in a hurry to get onto the counter first or inside the elevator at earliest or get into the metro at the fastest?
It is very sure that you may also remember the difficulty in getting in and out of that place because not just one, two or ten people but a whole swarm of them was doing the same thing.
While not letting the people come out in the haste of getting inside first, or in the hurriedness to be served by the concerned person for their objective of arrival, they forget the inconvenience that their activities might cause to other people.
So, have you ever wondered what could be the possible reasons for this behaviour?
Well, the answer is quite simple. There are two reasons for this. One is that everyone is in a hurry and second is that there are very less crowd control and management products available at such places.
Both of these reasons result in people thoughtlessly copying actions of one another to get done with their goal of going to such places as earlier as it can be. And then as you know the ultimate result is chaos!
Now when people just want to follow other’s actions, thinking that it might get their tasks done faster, then why not do something about it? And why not give them something that will help to create proper management so that the commotion and work at such places can be in a particular managed order.
By now, it is inevitable that to give any place a civilized look; we require something to redirect people in a proper manner. As an answer to this need, one simple solution that anyone can suggest is to put few people in charge of doing so. They can organize movement of an assemblage through hand gestures and verbal communication. However, this may or may not be effective, given that the crowd can vary from few 10’s to many 1000’s and in such case, one will end up hiring 100’s of temporary staff. This is not cost-effective for any organisation. Also, due to verbal and gestural communication the peace of a workplace might get disrupted.
So, what can be the other feasible solution to this problem?
The cost-effective and easy solution to this problems is- use of retractable belts and belt posts.
No one needs to stand, no one need to be listened to, no one need to pay an extra cost for staffing, and one can do what he or she usually does at such places – follow other’s actions. However, this time the actions will be transformed into a more sophisticated way of queuing and waiting for the turn.
