Ingenious Employee

7 June 2024

My philosophy

“I commit myself to everything I do with enthusiasm and passion. I attach a great deal of importance to listening on a daily basis”.

My role at SEGULA

I’ve been a reliability engineer since the end of 2022 and an activity manager since the end of 2023, working for our client Renault at the Batilly plant (SOVAB, Société de Véhicules Automobiles de Batilly).
I report to the Reims branch (France industries division).

As a reliability engineer, I’m responsible for ensuring the reliability of the production chain in various sectors and industrial technologies at Renault Sovab’s Batilly site. More specifically, I work to reduce the frequency of breakdowns on a daily basis through predictive inspection of equipment, analysis of breakdowns, management of performance indicators, preparation of scheduled shutdowns, suggestions for improvements and updating of technical procedures.

As activity manager, my role is also to support, inform and raise the awareness of the forty or so SEGULA staff on site.
Support: anticipating needs and organising the internal arrival of new staff to make it easier for them to take up their jobs (supplies, equipment, access, prevention plan).
Informing: relaying information such as procedures, documentation, intranet access and training, organising events (SEGULA and Renault).
Raising awareness: explaining best practice and current administrative procedures.
Monitoring: keeping track of the activities, needs and expectations of each employee on site.

As an ambassador, I do my best to represent SEGULA to the client, to promote the Group’s activities to clients and employees, and to encourage co-option.

My background

I originally studied for a Scientific Baccalaureate (BAC S), but went on to do a two-year preparatory course at the Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieur de Metz (ENIM), before joining a 3-year sandwich course at the Institut des Techniques de l’Ingénieur et de l’Industrie (ITII).

My professional experience

I did a number of work placements as part of my course as a planning engineer at Renault, and as a production agent (Groupe La Poste, then Thyssenkrupp). I then joined the Renault group as an apprentice production engineer in the Sheet Metal Department (SOVAB plant) for 3 years.
My role was to monitor and ensure the availability of equipment and systems and take action to help the production line run smoothly.

After my studies, I had the opportunity to join SEGULA as a reliability engineer, on assignment at Renault’s Batilly plant (SOVAB). For the last 6 months, I’ve also been an activity pilot.

My best project

My best project was to find a solution to operate an autonomous robot using AGV (Automatic guided vehicle) technology to handle assembled parts from a preparation station to the production line.

After several years in operation, this equipment began to experience increasingly recurrent faults. I was asked to carry out some research to find out what was wrong.

To do this, I took a number of steps:

Researching the Engineering Department’s archives to draw up an inventory of the skills and people behind the project, in order to contact all the business experts.
Carrying out technical research to develop my skills in this equipment.
Creating a database to analyse failures and define priorities in collaboration with the maintenance teams.
Managing daily meetings with the experts and organising the various interventions.

My passions

I’m passionate about mechanics, nature and travel.

I took part in the Europ Raid 2023 with my two co-drivers, crossing 20 countries in 22 days in a Peugeot 205. Memorable moments! We completed the route without any problems and delivered 70 kg of school supplies to a charity in Bulgaria.

This year, I’m taking part in the Alpina Raid 2024 from 29 June to 6 July, which involves crossing the Alps in a 205 from north to south, taking in 20 Alpine passes in 6 days. A great challenge!

I plan to return to Morocco for a second humanitarian trip, the Nomad Raid in 2026.

My greatest dream

My greatest dream is to travel to every continent in the world to learn more about different cultures and ways of life.
