This is what a typical daytime shift looks like for me:
I get an overview of the plant (the quality being produced, any problems overnight and what has been done to deal with them) and check whether all members of my shift team are present.
Samples are removed to check product quality and taken to the analytical laboratory. The results are available about 1 ½ hours later and any adjustments can then be made.
Routine production meeting
At this meeting we discuss the grades to be produced during the day and what cleaning and maintenance tasks are scheduled.
Routine repair meeting
At this second meeting we take a detailed look at any necessary repairs, e.g. which components need to be replaced, etc.
Plant inspection: The equipment in the plant is checked for leaks and to ensure that everything is running smoothly.
