Firsthand experience

You notice that a packing process is not working well and needs to be more efficient. What do you do?

You work according to a certain project methodology. First look where the problem lies by talking to people on the shop floor about the current process. You ask them what they think the problem is, and measure how large the problem really is. You see for example that the process is suddenly longer between 12:00-16:00. Then you can target your search for the cause more effectively.

When you have found the cause, you create a solution and ensure that the right people solve it. You register everything neatly and send a status update to the management.

Growth

The growth path of this position can be horizontal as well as vertical. You can also follow different training courses, for example: LEAN Master, Impact Training Advice and CEVA Project Management Training.
