Then apply now, we need you! Intern in Production and Organization Optimization trough Discrete Event Simulations Who we’re looking for: • Enrolled active student for the duration of the internship - currently pursuing a degree • Programming capabilities, especially in C++ (FlexSim uses a specific language named FlexScript) is a plus • A good knowledge of production systems and material handling • Relational qualities and capacity to work autonomously in an international and distributed environment The Discrete Event Simulations currently utilized in PMI, built in FlexSim, have two main focuses: • The production line level – to assess and the number of operators needed based on the skills, the line efficiency, the reliability of the machines, the automation levels on the machines, the buffers sizes, the organizational structure, the materials delivery methods, the positioning of the materials on the line; to optimize the operations sequencing and the organizational structure considering the uncertainty of the failures and scraps • The factory level – to optimize the material handling method, quantities to move, pickings, work in process, inventories in warehouses considering the production planning, the brand and format changes, the machines and equipment breakdowns and scraps bringing randomness to the process. The candidate will • retrieve data from different data sources and by contacting the correct figures inside of the company. • analyze the data, request for corrections and explanations and convert all the data for the simulation usage • populate the simulation with the data and run all the different required scenarios. • define some of the scenarios that can be simulated in order to experiment new solutions • With the analysis of the simulations KPIs the candidate will then be able to compare the optimization and investment opportunities for our production systems. • Eventually, based on the skills of the candidate, they will contribute to the development of the simulation models and to work with the supplier to enhance the simulation environment in order to speed up the future simulation models creation. This work will have a direct impact on the target to have the most efficient production system with elimination of waste and with the best usage of our resources.
