As Lean and Production Engineer in Primo Danmark A/S you will be instrumental in driving the journey for Primo on LEAN /optimisation of their many production lines.

The operational part is keeping the current operation up and running, observing processes, registration of deviations, and investigations. You will help developing the production, optimise master data, internal workflows and providing optimisation input for toolmaking and the processes. Furthermore, it includes updating or making new instructions/SOPs.

An important part is to further the lean implementation in operations. Improving and developing the boards in the production. As digitalization of production is already well on the way – part of the job is looking into how to implement IOT and how to automate the production even more.

You will be free to use the full Lean toolbox with assignment like; optimization of the factory layout and the goods-flow through the production. You will act as project manager of Kaizen projects, which all should result in an improved productivity e.g., changeovers of machinery, through-put time, waist and scrapped material.

Having done the analytical part, next step is implementing. Part of that job is training the employees, how to use “machine-cards” and how they best utilize the ERP system (IFS) at the shopfloor.
