Aircraft Maintenance Technology - 55

Steffen Dohrmann, 38, Director Production and Material Planning, MTU Maintenance,
Langenhagan, Germany

A

lthough Steffen Dohrmann has only been with MTU
Maintenance for six years, he's always found aviation captivating. Particularly now, as there is strong engine MRO growth
and the products and technology are fascinating. Also, from a
production planning perspective, the processes are complex and
it is an exciting challenge to meet customer needs as volumes
grow. "My job is to interface between various departments and
manage their needs, but most importantly, also those of our
customers - making sure we get their engines back to them
reliably, on time and at the highest quality that they are used to
from MTU," he says.
Prior to MTU, Dohrmann worked in the hydraulics field, also
in production planning and management. When he joined MTU,
he was in charge of planning for piece parts. Then, he moved
into planning for piece parts and the DAT areas, and now he
is in charge of all production and material planning at MTU
Maintenance Hannover. The role also includes coordinating material from headquarters in Munich and the engine OEMs, as well
as used serviceable material sourced by the purchasing team.

When people join MTU, they are given
a starter plan where they go around and
meet people from different but relevant
departments. "It is really important to
me to take the time to explain the planning processes within the shop, even if
the employees aren't directly in my team,"
Dohrmann notes. "We want to be working
towards one common goal - making the
customer happy - and it is important we understand each
other to achieve that. I also support new colleagues in the
planning department and make sure their careers get off to
a good start too."
Dohrmann says that it is important to have a motivated
team, that they enjoy what they do and that they can continually develop and improve processes. "As long as that is the
case, I am happy" he says. "It might sound geeky, but there is
nothing more satisfying than finding a way to make a process
more efficient!"
