Role Summary/Purpose

For our Material Management Team supporting the Rotor and Blades Production of the OneBirr Manufacturing organisation we are looking for an intern (m/f), who will support all production planning activities in the blade shop targeting 100% on-time-delivery while maintaining minimum inventory levels.
Duration: 6+ months
Essential Responsibilities

Beside the challenge to manage our diverse make-to-order product portfolio, consisting of steam and gas blades partly ex-Alstom, partly GE product designs, the blade shop is currently undergoing a significant transformation process towards a flow optimized layout. Those changes not only affect the physical layout but all IT/SAP/APS & order tracking procedures ultimatively challenging you to think innovatively and constantly in a changing environment.
During your internship you will take over the lead for all planning related activities for the blade shop. That includes short-term order status tracking and prioritization of orders, mid-term slot optimization activities and long-term/strategic capacity planning acitivies including make- or buy decisions, workforce adjustments etc. Your primary target will be to secure a 100% on-timedelivery. To achieve that goal daily communication with actually all production functions like production leaders, manufacturing engineers, material planners as well as procurement is key.
Furthermore, you will be responsible to parametrize our APS system for your responsible area, develop new order tracking tools (sufficient for managing a one-piece-flow production), initiate new meeting structures according to your leadership needs and provide regular reports to the master scheduling leader. You will benefit from close collaboration with the other three area planners (rotor shop, global repair center, hot gas path parts shop) that are looking forward to share their knowledge and best practices with you.
