Job Type: Permanent, FullTime

Salary: £40000 - £45000/annum

Master Production Planner required on permanent basis to join an industry leading manufacturing business based in Coventry.

Do you have a background strategically controlling the flow of production? Have you got experience of working in a fast paced manufacturing / production / assembly environment? If you are seeking an exciting challenge then this is the role for you!

You will be responsible for owning and managing the build and shipping plans, and order books, for all products built at the Coventry facility. Working with Sales, Materials and Production departments to balance customer requirements with materials plans and production resources to maximise customer satisfaction while minimising working capital and headcount.

Key responsibilities:

Use sales forecasts, historical analysis, market intelligence and orders on hand to develop rolling 12-18 month launch plans including rates and model mix, for products. This will require working with Production & Materials teams to understand constraints, and may involve multiple scenarios.
Develop a monthly shipping plan based on the agreed launch plan, and use that to forecast delivery dates and compare to the sales forecast / orders on hand requested delivery dates. Review differences with the Sales team to identify major issues where delivering later than requested would not be acceptable. Re-build launch and shipping plans as necessary, keeping Production and Materials in the loop.
Once launch and shipping plans are agreed, formally release them to all stakeholders, with a date and issue number.
Upload the launch plan to our Oracle based ERP system, to ensure the relevant build slots are opened and available.
When significant issues arise which impact the plans (eg material shortages or a change in the model mix demanded), again work with Materials, Production and Sales to re-develop that plan and follow steps 1-4.
Work with the Production Scheduler to maintain the detailed master plans (daily level sequencing) in line with the launch plan and with ERP.
Once a week, create the full book of order, showing order status and expected delivery timing for every order on hand. Use this to also create the full slot availability view, showing the ship dates and models for all unsold launch slots.
Support the weekly Sales & Operations Planning meeting with details of latest demand vs availability.Experience required:

Proven experience in a master planning role.
Degree or equivalent experience in an Engineering, Technical or Business discipline.
Proven experience working in Manufacturing in a closely related or complementary role

Excellent advanced Excel skills
Problem investigation and resolution skills and techniques.
