Logistics Engineer in Pretoria Rosslyn
on 23 July 2020
Collaborative ManagementA typical day at Volvo is constructed of Short Interval Control meetings to measure and control productivity of the day and close all the necessary gaps in order to achieve set daily targets. what I have learned through this is that close visual management is very necessary to be conducted and also that preventive management style is better than reactive management style, at Volvo we always visualize the problem before hand and deal with it before it physically affects productivity. The workplace culture here is that we work as a team there is no split between functional departments we all work in unison there is no problem that depend to specific department every problem is for us all as a management, just like titanic story if it sinks it sinks for us all The hardest part of the job is in my department as logistics we also deal with external problems that emerge from Thailand, sometimes we receive wrong parts from oversees and by that time the parts are already due for production, this creates a problem with line stoppages. So what i did was to indicate all those parts that causes problems so that we can have a buffer storage to eradicate the unnecessary line stoppages The most enjoyable part of my job is that the role that we play as logistics we are like the bedrock of the company without us nothing goes in and nothing goes out, so our productivity is very crucial for the entire organization to be productivity, so I always work everyday with pride.
