Product assembly - the final piece of the jigsaw

Back Apply now

System Assembly - the department where all the components come together and where we assemble the end products, starting from “nothing”. At System Assembly we do not only build, but also test and visually check our products. To perform those tasks, we’re using tools, equipment and work instructions. Sometimes, specific products require additional training. This training is part of the development of a Technician at Prodrive Technologies.

Our long-term goal is to be as efficient and productive as possible with an output of the highest quality available.

For me, each day at Prodrive Technologies is different due to the number of competencies I have worked towards. Really, I cannot explain how each day will turn out. One day, I can be mentoring new employees from over the world, the next day, I can be building all sorts of cool products for our customers, the next day, I can be tasked with helping to create a new process in order ensure the business is running efficiently and my colleagues are happy with this.

The flexibility of my working week is great, I know what to expect: the unexpected. I enjoy going to work with the knowledge that, the likelihood, I’ll be doing something different to what I did the day before. For example, building a different product from the day before, or mentoring to a new employee.

Out with our general tasks, we are responsible as technicians to ensure the highest quality product always reaches our customers, meaning if we find an issue, we fix the issue. If we have any doubts, we turn those doubts around by contacting the right person or escalating it correctly as per our processes. I take pride in what I do, Prodrive Technologies take pride in what they do, it’s a nice match. Prodrive Technologies will care about you, if you care about them.

The tasks of a Team Leader are very versatile. I’m responsible for the proper execution of production orders and the quality of our manufacturing output for the System Assembly department.

It’s about keeping the production going by escalating all the issues on the floor, focusing on improvements to make our process better and realizing our motto “quality above quantity”. Continuous improvements are key in our factory and everyone that is working here has the possibility to give input for those improvements.

We are in contact with different people within the company: other Team Leaders (from other departments), Human Resource (for capacity, contracts etc.), Planners, Process owners and Management.

Team Leaders are also HR-Coaches, which means we are busy with HR related items such as job interviews and personal evaluations. The goal is to create and maintain the best, most motivated team. Planning is part of this to make sure all the technicians are at the right place at the right time.

What I like the most about my job is to work with a lot of different people with different positions within Prodrive Technologies.

A typical day for me as a Support engineer is to start with an issue from a Technician. Today, some Technicians had an issue during the manufacturing of a product. They had problems while lifting one of our products. They report the issue and it’s my task to find a solution to solve this problem. In this process I discuss with a team lead and his Technicians to figure out what the best solution is.

When I know the specifications and requirements from the Technicians, my conversation with purchasing starts. The purchaser helps me with some companies that provide a possible solution. This is just one of the cases that passes by as a support engineer.

Other activities we do is taking care of the commissioning of new installations, a water station for example. It’s my responsibility to arrange all the documentation, tools and time to commission this new demiwater installation.
