Asset Maintenance Management Project $25M (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 24 October 2013
A smaller project compared to the huge Postal Transformation but interesting as changing the culture of the Maintenance Department within Canada Post. Was able to work with my speciality which was the spare parts required by maintenance to maintain the equipment. A typical day consisted of working with large spreadsheets and using VLOOKUP and Pivot Tables to build the Bill of Materials for each type of equipment.
The project was fun as it had the support from all levels of management and was sorely need to replace the old mainframe system.
The co-workers were great and the hardest part of the project was getting the Master Equipment List for each site finalized and approved. The most enjoyable part of the project was learning the power of VLOOKUP and Pivot Tables which greatly reduced the amount of time required to build the Bill of Materials.
Great mix of seasoned employees with new employees with fresh ideas.
