3. Tell me how a typical day at the office looks like. What do you do and who do you speak?
“My typical day…Well, I do not have typical day at work. I participate on several working levels. One of them is that I cooperate with project engineering for implementation of new parts to serial production. Also I have to cover and set up quality procedures and level of quality checks. Part of my job is training of Quality Inspectors with regards to checking of parts. As you can see, my job is quite divers.”
4. When exactly do you come along in a process? And how do you start?
“In the process I am on both sides: At the beginning, because I cooperate on in the project phase, where I participate in setting production processes and setting levels of checking for unique projects. And of course at the end of processes, because I am every day in touch with serial production and have to solve issues during the production phase. Last but not the least I have to cover complaints from customers as well as internally.”

We always try to support our customer so he will be satisfied.“
6. What trends and developments do you see within the Quality branche and how will they effect the Rompa Group?

7. How do you stay ahead in your line of work and how do you stay informed?
“The most important is that people should be open to learn new things, new ways and new technology. You have to want to learn. Learning, every day at work, because every day you can get new experiences if you want. Of course day to day experience should be supported by training.”
