Schnitzer Group awards Main Prize

For more than 10 years the university Ravensburg-Weingarten and the Schnitzer Group have a trusting cooperation. Therefore the Schnitzer Group was requested to award a “prize”. As part of the 20. Career Days the students should answer questions regarding the exhibitors in a sweepstake. Proud winner was Maximilian Kaiser, student of industrial engineering. Within the award ceremony during the Career Days he received the first prize, a Microsoft Surface Pro, presented by Ulrike Schnitzer, HR at the Schnitzer Group.


Schnitzer Group on Talent Search!

Each year in autumn the domestic economy meets at the universities. “Career Days”, “Engineering Night” or simply “Practice Days”- at each place of study there is a different name for it. But all have the same aim: students can get to know their future employer and can network with them.

The Schnitzer Group was “on tour” as well to present itself. Destinations have been the university in Würzburg-Schweinfurt, in Neu-Ulm, and the university Ravensburg-Weingarten and Heilbronn next week. The students have the opportunity to get informed and then to apply for internships, bachelor theses or a master thesis.

Schnitzer Group Newsletter IN TIME - edition 2/2017

"There is no plan that can survive contact with reality"

Product development planning is based on a “zero errors” approach. At the same time, increasingly digital team communication and rapid technological changes in the production environment are placing growing demands on all of the parties involved. These factors can quickly turn projects into complex undertakings and augment the risk of failure in the process. So how can projects be turned into success stories nonetheless? ...

All-in-One – “Schnitzer Group proudly presents”:

The Schnitzer Group grows continually. Thus it is very important and a continuous process to train communication and cooperation in a team. At this year´s team day at the monastery Rot at the Rot (Upper Swabia) another milestone was set to achieve the vision 2020 by group exercises and reflections. The highlight of the day was the construction of a cableway across a pond in four teams where construction and effective cooperation was on trial. An “educational”, powerful day with a lot of sun and warmth.

As loosening-up exercise all colleagues from Germany and Switzerland posed for a group picture. A rare sight as the teams, due to their areas of applications, don´t attend in full at internal meetings always, but are away on behalf of our customers.

Best Practice auf der Fakuma

Within the mentoring concept of the Schnitzer Group the internal knowledge transfer is an element for the continuous development of each employee. Further elements are active coaching in projects, regular trainings of key areas and operative learning in practice. Therefore trade fairs are getting visited by Schnitzer Teams together also. During the visit of selected exhibitors one mentor explains the technical features of the presented exhibits to the colleagues.

Last week Peter Schnitzer visited the Fakuma in Friedrichshafen with young employees now. They learned about the newest developments in plastic injection moulding. At first as group, then in teams of 2 with specific focus topics. The findings and learnings of the fair will be shared during key-note talks with the colleagues at the Schnitzer Group locations.




Agile knowledge transfer is fun

What has agility to do with Scrum or Kanban? How important is agility for the industry today? What are the basics of agile corporate culture? Three questions which are discussed in companies currently.

Therefore, Christian Meier, project manager at the Schnitzer Group, has developed the business game „CREATOR“. The target of the concept is to playfully train basics of agile models, in different modules, with the participants.

A first run of the game was recently done at the Schnitzer Group in Wangen. The mix between talks and active implementation was obviously great fun for all participants and made the knowledge transfer of agile methods easier. The simulation of a real customer-supplier relation allowed the group an exciting insight in the product development process and provided practically oriented the increasing need of transparency, flow of information and networking.

Manufacturability, costs and scheduling at the touch of a button 

Recently the Schnitzer Group has begun using the newly developed AutoForm R^7 Planning & Bidding Software for component based evaluation of the technical feasibility and cost calculation. Based on CAD data of the actual component the costs and an initial feasibility get analysed. Also it allows a scheduling of the respective working hours from construction to tool start up.

Further advantages at a glance:

  • Valuation and weighting of parameters and influencing factors
  • Transparent process development and overview of tool and part costs
  • Technically based decision-making basis
  • Identification of method optimisation for cost savings at component and tools

In addition to the new results the Schnitzer Group achieves even more precise statements about the manufacturability for high-strength materials, lightweight aluminium construction and the respective costs and times by comparison with its global tool data bases.

This well-founded information serves as a decision making basis for the award and commissioning of suppliers and provides transparency early on about feasibility, costs and time.

International Workshops For System Integration Of Complex Assemblies

Products in the automotive industry become more complex constantly. Beside of established core functions of the products more and more secondary functions complete the product properties. Amongst other things this leads to the situation that various software and hardware systems are used which have to be compatible to one another. At internationally positioned companies this leads to a special task as soon as the released development gets industrialized in the global production plants.

Innovative manufacturers handle this requirement early by cross-functionally workshops with intercultural teams amongst other things. With that they secure the implementation of the systems sustainably and ensure an assured run-up. A Tier 1 system supplier has assigned the Schnitzer Group with the overall conception from the planning and moderation up to the operational implementation of such workshops. These will be carried out in English during the coming months at international production sites.







Local Knowledge Transfer

With the training module „plastic injection molding: process and tool technology“ the Schnitzer Group currently trains the employees of an automobile manufacturer. In the three days seminar basics of process and tool technology are imparted as well as selecting the right material. Also error patterns of the production process are analyzed and discussed.

Practical, pragmatic and competent the trainer team of the Schnitzer Group is using its extensive experience in this complex production technology. Regularly the explanations on a model of an injection molding machine or on a 3 D miniature tool of a front fairing are a highlight. This tool was manufactured in 3 D technology with a scale of 1:10 and supports the explanations of the experts of the Schnitzer Group at internal and external trainings.

Workshops on industrialization of complex systems

Today more and more driving assistance systems are installed into cars. They increase safety on the one hand and on the other hand they increase the driving comfort, too. Some of them we as user perceive directly, e.g. parking assistance, speed assistance or other acoustical and visual warning systems. Cornering light assistance concepts or the newest active light systems in premium vehicles e.g. increasing the safety almost unnoticed while driving.

All this system have one in common – they increase the complexity of a product for functionally relevant implementation significantly, since besides the individual parts also control units, software and the necessary network between the individual systems have to be taken into account.

This complexity becomes clear especially in the industrialization phase. A “simple” training about montage, handling etc. of the parts is no longer sufficient to ensure the required customer quality and function of different subsystems. Instead it is necessary to identify the system relevant requirements and the integration of the overall system in the production ramp-up with all parties involved and to create a joint and integrated product understanding.

An almost ideal format to create a cross-functional product identification and understanding for the requirements of the system are workshops. Participants are all involved functions of product development, process planning, quality planning and production. These often multistage workshops are a key element for the successful system integration.

The Schnitzer Group organizes, directs and guides such workshops, also in an internationally environment and prepares the team of the manufacturer optimally for the requirements. In the run-up, during and after the workshop the Schnitzer Group supports with additional impulses from its many years of experience with technical complex products and systems.

Schnitzer Group Family Day 2016 - With “bag and baggage” at the glassblowers

Last Saturday the annual excursion of the Schnitzer Group took place. From the locations Wangen, Kornwestheim, Weißenburg and Shanghai many colleagues followed the invitation to the Allgäu with their families.

For the first time it took place also with Chinese participation - Axel Oroszi, managing director of the Schnitzer Consulting Shanghai, joined the family day with his wife Vicky and their little son Max.

At the meeting point Axel Oroszi had to pass a short employee quiz at first. Then the company group of 56 people did start by the team bus towards Kreuzthal, which is located between Leutkirch and Isny in the Adelegg. During the trip Peter Schnitzer gave a brief introduction regarding the historical background of the passing landscapes and villages of the Western Allgäu.

In Eisenbach, one of the two well preserved glassblower villages, the hiking group started on the legendary glassmaker path. During the two hour hike some challenges had to meet. In rough terrain buggies and strollers had to be transported. In addition a “schnapps table” of the Schnitzer Sons had to be passed.

Arrived at the very well preserved glassblower village Schmidsfelden new power was gathered during a country-style rest with a tasty “glassmaker pan” at the old “shed”. Beside of the historical guided tour through the glassmaker village, a children´s program was offered of course, too. Here the Schnitzer-offspring could become creative and created little glass ghosts and –hearts. Afterwards for the “grown-ups” a professional glassmaker demonstration took place at the glass oven.

After a relaxed return trip the group met at the “Allgäu room” of the Winestadl Rimmele to enjoy a tasty grill buffet. Without rain but with a lot of fresh air, action and a lively exchange the 16th Schnitzer family day came to an end.

Much more than Formula 1 for students

Our Mainfranken Racing Team at the „Formula Student“ in Hockenheim

Formula 1 atmosphere was present among the more than 140 competing student teams on the Hockenheimring. But the “Formula Student” is more than just a Formula 1 race for students.

Since 2006 students from all over the world get together for 5 days, to compete their self-constructed racing cars and to convince experts from the industry and economy of their performance and marketability.

Under the auspices of the VDI e.v. the future engineers from all subject areas need not only to prove the competitiveness of their cars in the race – they have to convince in 8 disciplines in total.

In the static disciplines the business plan, cost analyses and the engineering design of the “racing stable” need to be presented in front of a jury.

The dynamic disciplines examine the cars in regard to lateral and longitudinal acceleration potential, in the handling and on the durability and efficiency. The cars are only authorized for this evaluation test when the technical acceptance was passed.

This year the Schnitzer Group supports the Mainfranken Racing Team of the University of Schweinfurt in the area “Systemic Projectmanagement” and did use the opportunity to gain initial experience in the Formula Student on visiting the event.

The following pictures provide some impressions:

Mountain Biking - Mudbath!

With a powerful team of 15 members the Schnitzer Group took part in the 14th mountain bike event of the SC Deuchelried end of June.

Already at the registration they have opted for the 50 km circuit with a medium level of difficulty.

The scenically beautiful tour, with a route profile of 800 metres in altitude led through paved roads, demanding bike trails, across meadows and through the beautiful forest landscape of the western Allgäu.

The rainy weather during the last weeks had turned the routes into muddy, difficult to ride paths and required a high level of condition and skill.

Despite of all strain the fun factor and the group experience were the main focus. When after four hours all participants did cross the finish line they properly celebrated with “isotonic drinks” of the local brewery and at the following biker party.

The Schnitzer Group supports this legendary mountain bike event as sponsor for years.

Attractive presentation at the „vitamin b“ career fair

The first appearance of the Schnitzer Group at the “vitamin b” career fair of the Heilbronn University at the campus Künzelsau was a great success.

The employees Marius Schindler und Benedikt Wolff had many interesting discussions with students. The focus was on topics like bachelor theses, internships or possibilities to work for the Schnitzer Group.

The visitors were surprised by the range of different topics of project theses which the students have worked out during the last years. As a result the diversity of the field of work of the specialists for “Systemic Projectmanagement” became clear. Due to many years of experience, Marius Schindler was able to picture very impressively the perspectives for employees in the global group. His past professional experience as trainee, working student, bachelor's degree candidate in Germany then took him for three years to the Schnitzer Consulting Shanghai in China. Back to Germany Marius Schindler continues to bring in his international experience in the development and expansion of the Schnitzer Group USA.

This clearly shows that an international career is also possible at a small, dynamic company.
