Senior Production Planner/Vendor Scheduler (Former Employee) – Valencia, CA – October 31, 2012
Scheduling in truck loads of high volume components to support manufacturing. Ordering display componentry from MRP driven demand forecast and meetings...including Costco's annual "Fence" Program.
I learned every day is different...everchanging, not boring.
Management pretty much let me do my job, unless they knew something I didn't. Working with my co-workers was the best part of my job...good people to surrround yourself with which always helps when one's day is more challenging than "normal."
The hardest part would be expediting unplanned materials from suppliers and making sure all the proper departments are linked in to what has to happen in a timely manner.This is a common occurence in Operations (Production Planning).
I always enjoy working with people and acheiving the desired result: success. Whether it be getting off of backorder, special projects, new products, quality rejection replacements, and daily ordering and scheduling to keep the production lines running and our customers happy.
new software, previous was less complicated and more efficient.
