An employee story by Bart Bogaard
My journey as Planning Services consultant at EyeOn kickstarted with the Strategic Days in Paris this January. During this internal event all global EyeOn employees come together to discuss our strategy for this year. It was exciting to meet people from the entire company in both a serious pragmatic way, and to be able to assess their karaoke skills during the night.
During the first month of onboarding, we had extensive sessions where I had the opportunity to understand what my study in Operations Management & Logistics meant in practice. The real-world application of academic knowledge on forecasting in time series, and their implications on supply chain parameters linked theory to valuable insights for customers.
After just a few weeks, I was already working on customer projects and services. It was a rewarding experience to work with both pharmaceutical companies and retailers. One project that stands out involves the design and implementation of an RCCP planning tool, which balances the utilization of production sites and the demand. Projects like these offer a nice challenge to use your theoretical supply chain knowledge, and learn the newest software tools and skills to achieve your goal.
Overall, I have gained valuable knowledge and skills that I will continue to develop throughout my career, and I am excited to see what the future holds!
