A global company is looking to recruit an experienced Project Manager.
Manufacturing businesses need a strong link between their sales and marketing team and those doing the manufacturing and sourcing the raw materials and components. It is no use expecting productivity to simply be able to be increased to satisfy demand; there are so many factors to consider that a large jump in productivity could easily fail to meet it.
The site planning manager will be tasked with liaising regularly with the sales team and gathering information that will be used to turn productivity up or down. As well as signed off purchase orders that are definitely going ahead, there is also a need to keep abreast of future campaigns and promotions, as these can have huge effects on throughput. The site planning manager will use the demand information to keep the production and procurement teams informed of present and potential demand, so that they can put the wheels in motion for deciding on staffing levels, warehousing and storage needs and, most importantly, securing a supply of raw materials.
As demand can go down as well as up, the site planning manager’s input will be vital in reducing surplus production, which is costly both in terms of storage costs and reduced cash availability. Certain products, such as non-preservable foodstuffs, simply cannot be overproduced more than the bare minimum of slack, as this is direct waste with no potential for ale at a later date.
Communicating with the various players in the supply chain will be an everyday occurrence to the site planning manager. Interpreting sometimes tentative information into information that’s usable by the production and procurement teams will require a good sense for expressing probability and certainty so that they can best decide on their next steps.
You’ll also need excellent IT skills in the shape of using common supply chain solutions as well as the normal office environment packages such as word processors and spreadsheets. These will be the channels via which you arrive at your throughput calculations and present your conclusions to the players in the supply chain.
