  1. At any plant (factory), there is primarily a General Director. Under it there are:

    • the service of the Chief Engineer, which includes the Design Department (CO) and the Department of the Chief Technologist (OGT), and even to a heap of everything;
    • a commercial service that searches for orders, concludes contracts, supports them, and so on.;
    • a production service consisting of production workshops, a planning and dispatching department, etc.;
    • quality service – technical control department, etc.;
    • everything else, including janitors and security guards.

    What exactly to do for production workshops today is decided by the PDO on the basis of plans drawn up by the planning and economic department.

    How workshops will perform daily tasks is decided by the shop manager with his deputies and the cahal of masters. If you have any questions about work execution technologies, please contact the technical department. Technologists decide what operations and in what sequence to perform, on what equipment, etc., develop technological documentation or changes to existing ones and transfer them to the workshops. This work is everyday, routine and, attention!, – ” the technologist is to blame for everything!”.

    At this time, the CO is developing another wunderwafly, which must be done under the contract signed by merchants, swearing about the Technical Task and restrictions imposed by the OGT. Usually, there are several wunderwafels at the same time. Designers also solve all sorts of small and large problems of technologists in terms of devices, stands and other necessary utensils for production, without which, it turns out, nothing can be done and not pass the OTC.

    So what kind of specialist determines what to do in production?

    True, there are so-called design bureaus in the Russian Federation, and earlier in the USSR, which at the apogee of their development turned into powerful institutions with a production base. So the Main designers rule the ball there. But don't let that bother you – it's just, in this case, another name for the CEO. Such a “Chief Designer” has full authority over the product that his company produces. To change something in his product, just one signature is enough. πŸ™‚

  2. A lack of understanding of the essence and evidence of the logic of organizing production can immediately be noticed in your question.

    Search for “extreme” again? How it feels in our organizations. How it all happened already…


    You probably know that process engineers only implement the drawings and ideas of design engineers. Technologists adapt to the equipment drawings for the production of the product (what is being done).

    The chain in this case looks like this: Yandex. Constructor Department β†’ Technologist's department. In this classic case, the design engineer determines “what to do”.

    But this is not the whole chain.

    Production in all its diversity has a clear hierarchy and structure. In this structure, everyone has a certain place for fruitful work.

    For example, in the design department determines “…what to do…” to the design engineerChief designer.

    By and large:

    Determines “…what to do… ” only by the Customer of the product being produced. In this case, the director's customer is the person who determines “what to do” for the director. The director determines what the Chief Designer should do.

    Then the chain looks like this:

    Customer β†’ Terms of Reference β†’ Director β†’ Chief Designer β†’ Design Engineer β†’ Head of Department Technologist β†’ Engineer-technologist β†’ Production.

    Develop drawings only for those products that can be mastered by technologists and the capabilities of production technologies.
