Ask me a question!

You play a crucial role as the first point of contact on the shop floor for a project team involved in the assembly, testing and delivery of innovative automated machines.
From simple welding cells to automated production lines where different joining techniques come together. No project is the same!

As Project Coordinator, you are the driving force on the shop floor, where you lead one or more projects. You work together with a team of talented mechanics and programmers from different fields. You are the link between orders, drawings and concepts, and you discuss them with the Project Manager and Engineers. Before the assembly process starts, you draw up a detailed plan to go through the project process in the most efficient way together with your team. You carefully research and plan how many and which employees are needed for the execution. In addition, you carry the following responsibilities:

  • You manage the project team on the shop floor on a daily basis and ensure the smooth progress of the project.
  • You coordinate the delivery of parts and sub-assemblies from the warehouse.
  • You assess the quality of the work and, thanks to your technical commitment, suggest solutions to any problems.
  • You keep track of changes and organise the necessary inspections and tests.

Together with the Team Leader and Project Manager, you will be responsible for delivering a technically high-quality end product to our customers on time and within budget. Your contribution is invaluable to the success of our company!

This will be your day

7:30 In the morning, a meeting is held on the project with the various team members. Here, you discuss the work, planning and challenges, after which you and the project team get to work assembling or commissioning the machine.
11:00 From your desk at the project, you will e.g. call for materials, make a detailed plan and assess the schedule forecast and adjust it where necessary. Team members may also encounter a problem that requires your help to solve. You discuss this with engineers and, if necessary, an improvement ticket is created, which you also put in the open issue list, which you manage.
13:00 After the break, samples have to be taken on the project to check the quality. You do this together with your team. You also contact the project team working at the customer's site, which you have prepared and organised. A few weeks a year you are there yourself.
16:00 The day flies by and it is time to clean up. Together with the project team, you work according to the 5S methodology. You ensure that the workplace is tidy around the machine(s) so that you can start fresh the next working day.
