Compass Point is working with a Consultancy that is establishing a new, state of the art, manufacturing plant in Bedford. They require an experienced Production Planner, to work with the Site Manager, for an initial period of 3 months to help establish robust processes. The business is manufacturing hi-tech electro-mechanical products in short batch runs.

Core duties:

Reviewing and acting on MRP suggestions to:
  • Raise manufacturing work orders and pick lists
  • Raise purchasing requests

  • Schedule work orders to meet demand requirements

  • Manage the manufacturing plan and report progress

Work with the team to develop the processes in terms of:
  • Work order documentation
  • Capacity planning and loading
  • Manufacturing routings
  • Restructuring BOM's to suit manufacturing requirements
  • Improve Item Master information
  • Improve the lead time information in ERM for scheduling

Contract is outside IR35 and initially for 3 months. This is highly likely to extend given the scope of the project.
