Assembly Perfect Charging

The department Assembly, Perfect Charging, assembles the Fronius battery chargers part by part.

The complex devices pass through several work steps and test stations before they are delivered to customers. The team is situated in Sattledt, Austria.

Look over Uta‘s shoulder on a typical workday

Uta: My typical workday starts by checking how many orders are open. I distribute the orders so that my team can work and make sure that there is enough material to work with.

Then I approve orders for the next day. During the course of the shift I process my emails and deal with other organisational matters such as holiday requests and sick leave.

I am also responsible for production planning for the upcoming days.Of course I also check the assembly lines from time to time to see if everything is alright. The final task is the handover to the next shift leader.

Career

What stages did you complete on your way to becoming a shift leader?

Uta: After graduating from school in Germany, I studied and graduated in office administration.

Afterwards I completed an apprenticeship as a restaurant specialist and went to Austria. I then worked as a restaurant specialist here in Austria before I joined Fronius four and a half years ago.

I started as a semi-skilled employee in the Electronics department, became an assistant shift leader later on and since October 2019 I am shift leader in Assembly Perfect Charging.

 

Why is your job the right one for you?
