Pros: always busy, always something to do
Cons: locating machines and equipment for physical transfers.
Typical day starts at 6 A.M., checking EMAILS concerning inventory issues from off shift, rectify as needed. Check with color build unit (CBU) for inventory needs, make all transfers, physically and systematically. Check automatic dispensing unit (ADU) levels, physically and systematically move all materials needed. Once all CBU needs are met, off to the distribution center for cycle counts, home location managing, consolidations, shipping error rectification, periodically checking EMAILS for other department ( CBU, QC, plant, staging, pilot,R&D ) needs.After lunch check with CBU for material needed for the next 2 shifts.
What I learned: Independence, proactive approach, many SAP system movements from department to department, plant to plant. Many different department operations.
Co Workers: Team atmosphere, always ready to help.
Hardest part of my job: Balancing all above duties, making sure all needs are met.
Most enjoyable part of my day: Contact with different department co workers, personalities and the daily challenges each day brought.
