  • Analysis of these schedules and the development of tools to do this in an efficient and effective manner is always necessary in order to continuously improve and take the appropriate actions.

  • Striving for a good balance between realizing the production results on the one hand and an optimal distribution within the factory on the other hand is of crucial importance.

  • Based on reporting, active involvement in improvement projects and enthusiastic communication, you will become the central point of contact within production with regard to production planning and allocation.

  • Within this department there is frequent communication with other factories within EMEA.

  • You are also actively involved in supply chain projects to improve planning and logistics processes.
