High quality and delivery reliability are crucial parameters for RIVAL’s demanding customers. RIVAL sets the bar high in both areas and strengthens the effort through increased digitisation and the employment of an educated production engineer.
Production planning and optimisation become more and more important in the daily work at RIVAL. “With the customers we have on board, it is crucial that we always deliver high-quality projects to the agreed delivery time,” co-owner and sales manager Christian Aarup says.
“In order to reach this goal, we have decided to hire an educated production engineer; a new key employee, who will be the driving force in the further structuring work of our processes and subsequently manage them safely at the company. This will happen in a close and unique collaboration with our skilled “craftsmen” in the production,” he says.
New skills offer new opportunities
RIVAL is thus looking in new directions to top-tune the business. “The classic model would be to hire a quality manager, but we have chosen a more proactive model by deciding to hire a skilled production engineer instead. “We need to root the serial production mindset,” Christian Aarup says. “At the same time, we are currently implementing the quality management system 1factory, which can help us avoid and learn from our deviations.”
