The Power of Seamless Industrial Automation – Equipment Systems Engineer
The industrial revolution starts here - because plant manufacturing / equipment systems engineering drives Industry 4.0. The equipment systems engineer or sometimes also called the manufacturing systems engineer assembles the elementary building blocks in (industrial) plants and smart factories.
This involves a diverse range of tasks that focus on the management and optimisation of automated industrial plants. Equipment Systems Engineers specialise in the analysis, design and implementation of advanced automation systems that enable more efficient production operations and keep pace with the latest technological trends in Industry 4.0. As experienced professionals, they ensure that all machines run safely and efficiently. And that their performance meets the high quality and precision standards required in competitive industrial markets. They are also responsible for troubleshooting any problems that arise and suggesting sensible improvements to streamline processes and maximise performance. In doing so, they work with other engineers, whom they must ultimately coordinate. Equipment Systems Engineers must also keep up with the ever-evolving technology in the industry - because the competition never sleeps.
BENOMIK is your recruitment consultancy for such professionals in the plant engineering sector of Industry 4.0. We are constantly optimising our multi-channel search to ensure that we reach as much talent as possible in our active network of over 770,000 contacts. This allows us to fill vacancies in just 12 weeks on average.
What makes a good Equipment Systems Engineer?
Excellent equipment systems engineers are people who are well versed in the field of automation and digitalisation in manufacturing. To do this, they must have a deep understanding of the various technologies and concepts related to Industry 4.0. This means artificial intelligence, data analytics, machine learning, additive manufacturing (3D printing), blockchain technologies and also the Internet of Things (IoT).
Critical in this position is the ability to fix problems quickly, otherwise the entire production often comes to a standstill. It should also have an eye for identifying potential problems in advance. In complex projects, you will work together with other engineers. Impeccable communication skills are needed to ensure that everything runs as smoothly and quickly as possible. It is also important for equipment systems engineers to understand the company's business objectives, current processes and products, so they can identify areas for improvement.
The design of equipment and the application of safety protocols are among the main tasks. This requires strong analytical skills, including the ability to analyse data and develop efficient solutions that can increase the growth of the company. As with any Industry 4.0 position, Equipment Systems Engineers need to stay on top of the latest technology and use this knowledge to continuously improve processes.
Some see these experts as "meta-engineers", as they need to have broad knowledge of the fields of the other specialised engineers. In this position, variety is guaranteed.
What keeps Equipment Systems Engineers awake at night?
The pace of change in the Industry 4.0 landscape is rapid. Equipment systems engineers are responsible for developing and implementing state-of-the-art automation processes that are synonymous with Industry 4.0. These professionals work at the forefront of manufacturing technology, developing systems to monitor, analyse and optimise production lines to maximise efficiency and accuracy while ensuring. And they do this while maintaining the highest safety and quality standards in all processes.
And therein lies the challenge: on the one hand, they must strive to be at the cutting edge of technology, but on the other hand, they must also ensure that any changes bring tangible results in terms of production efficiency and accuracy. Because at the end of the day, the success of equipment systems engineers is measured by how effectively they use technology to improve equipment performance.
