Recruiting for a Project Manager for implementation of a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to join a leading Pharma in Groningen.

Project overview:

During this phase of the project, the basis for a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) is implemented on the shop floor. This basic implementation involves the replacement of about 40 manually filled in paper forms with electronic registration within the MES system. In future phases this MES platform will be expanded by creating interfaces with other electronic systems like e.g. SAP and the Learning Management System. Also the option to create electronic Device History Records (eDHR) will be implemented in future phases.

For the implementation of the basic MES system within this first phase, a global team is created, in which Groningen local team members from Engineering, Production and QA collaborate with JJ Technology (IT) and Supply Chain Systems & Solutions (SCSS) collaborate to realize the project.

The role of the project manager is to manage all the local activities to assure manufacturing readiness for the implementation of the MES system and to align all the activities with the global team, in close collaboration with the global project manager from SCSS.
