'I AM THE CONNECTING FACTOR between developers and assembly ENGINEERS'

Kelsey started as a junior system designer mechanics at Sioux Technologies a few years ago. She is now working as an NPI engineer within the assembly department. She is pleased with the growth possibilities and opportunities Sioux has offered. 

Kelsey: 'Since the change from developer to NPI engineer, no day is the same for me anymore. My work has become much more varied and practical, which I see as a big advantage. At Sioux I have the chance to work on multiple projects at the same time that are also in different phases of the industrialization process. Besides my challenging job, I enjoy the pleasant working atmosphere, my colleagues, and ''can-do spirit'' within Sioux every day.'

Close cooperation with various disciplines

'As an NPI engineer, I supervise the design process from start to finish and ensure that the product is easy to develop. This is followed by a transfer to volume production. I do this in close consultation with the design team and the engineers. Every day, I work closely together with people from all kinds of different disciplines, such as logistics, production, warehouse and quality.'

Challenge & quality improvement

'If a challenge arises during the NPI assembly phase, I am responsible for initiating and implementing improvements. This applies not only for the product you are working on. Ultimately, it must be a structural efficiency or quality improvement for the entire process and future volume productions. In this way, I function as the connecting factor between the developers and the assembly engineers on the production floor.'
