Before I started my internship at Prodrive Technologies I already worked here for quite some time as a team leader. Therefore, my internship became a combination of fulfilling my team leader function within the cleanroom (2 days a week) and working on a project to improve assembly efficiency within operations (3 days a week). The combination of my team leader function with an interesting project within operations results in an internship that is dynamic and challenging.
I like the operations environment because it is very dynamic, and I must deal with a big group of various characters and nationalities.
My project goal is to define whether "augmented reality" can improve the current assembly efficiency by attaching a vision system to Prodrive technologies their existing workstations to guide operators during assembly. Within my project I decide what are my priorities and my mentor is purely there to review my work and check whether I have overthought my decisions. This gives a feeling of trust and responsibility. For me this is very motivating.
