Due to project-based nature of work at Voith Industrial Services we regularly take on large projects that require us to hire up to 150 freelance employees to work together with us for a short period of time. Projects on for example refineries and power plants require highly educated specialists with certifications to repair and overhaul complex equipment. This whole process of recruiting tracking certificates and managing company operations is being done manually at the moment and a lot of resources are being wasted.
As we want to develop our company towards digital age we want your help to make key strategic decisions in terms of our IT system infrastructure supporting recruitment and staffing processes. As a part of the research you will need to:
• Analyse and blueprint current processes related to recruitment and staffing operations
• Develop system requirements specifications (SRS) for digitizing the process
• Make feasibility study for IT system implementation. (off the shelf solution vs custom built system vs quick fix bootstrap solution)
There are multiple research angles that you could potentially take to fulfil your academic requirements and we will provide support for you to get the top grades. From our side as a collaborating company we expect to get at the end a presentation with recommendations on how we should digitalize our processes in the most optimal way and possible solutions.
