Industrial Engineering Internship.
s: February 2005 –September 2005.This narrative describes a compulsory fieldwork that the University(Universidad Católica Andrés Bello, Caracas, Venezuela) demands to allIndustrial Engineering Students to be eligible for the bachelor’s Degree.
Ericsson Venezuela is the leading provider of private & publictelecommunications in the country. Ericsson is capable of meeting all thetechnical needs for any data transmission system and offers a great technicalsupport to its clients.From February 2005 to September 2005 I became a part of the EricssonVenezuela Warehousing Team (Under the department of logistics).This teamwas assigned with the responsibility of over viewing all the storage anddelivery initiatives in order to supply their clients at due time.While working as an analyst I was asked to evaluate the current storehouse(in terms of efficiency, safety and inventory control) and proposeimprovements to increase the storage capacity and the response time.
The study in hand required for me to raise all the current informationregarding the storehouse management. I first measured the dimensions of the entire warehouse and took the time needed for the operators tocomplete their tasks.I drew some MS-Excel and MS-Project charts (PERT-CPM, Grant, PARETO,others) to understand the Time and Motion Study held. Later, I relied on theoperators and the floor manager to understand the importance betweeneach element in the warehouse and took this information to generate aNodes Diagram that would help me understand the ideal proximity betweenthe elements.With the dimensions previously taken I drew a blueprint of the warehouseusing AutoCAD software to be precise with the proposals. In that blueprint Iincluded every asset in the warehouse as well as every employee andequipment.
