A day as a Manufacturing Engineer
It is Monday morning. You kick-off your day with your rejuvenating cup of coffee (or tea) and respond to some emails. After that, you have a meeting with the team and talk about urgent topics for the day. There emerges an urgent topic on which you can support your manufacturing colleagues to get the car into production. After this, you have time to focus on your Battery Cell project activities.
At noon you decide to go for lunch on the campus together with your colleagues. During the day you will work closely with Design Engineering, Quality and Production to take Manufacturing process changes and new Battery designs from initial concept through prototype development and into full production.
