The Operations Control Center (OCC) is the central unit from which the operations in the
Benelux are managed for the Large Industries business line. It is a young and dynamic
group of engineers, with a strong sense for optimization and continuous improvement.
General statement : The OCC has 5 teams of 2 Real Time Engineers (RTE) that work in
shifts 24/7 with the responsibility to take the right decisions for optimization, nomination
(of energy) and reliability.
Well over 1M€ per day of energy is used by our networks to produce our products. It is
our firm belief that by continuous improvement we can capture material savings. This can
be done by automating or improving minor RTE-tasks, to have more focus on major
RTE-tasks and by improving decision making.
The RTE's currently find too little time to improve their effectiveness. The Improvement
Engineer will be asked to recognize, develop and implement improvements in decision
making and effectiveness.
