New human resources for Perm Engines

The days of young engine builders took place in UEC-Perm Engines. Over ten years such immersion into the factory life is carried out for those who started working in the company.  


Intensive program of the event included the speech of Managing Director Sergey Popov about the company development strategy, excursion to out-of-town test station, team-building trainings and effective communications.     

Almost all 45 participants of the event were interned in the company being students of Perm Aviation technical school or Perm Polytechnic University department of gas turbine engines. However the majority of information turned out to be new for them.   

As the students said the trainings were very useful in terms of communication and interaction with each other, goal-setting and formulation of strategy of teamwork.  During one of business games they were offered to make as many short words as possible from one long word “Rearrangement”.  Each of the students had his/her own role – manager, designer, manufacturing engineer, inspector, worker, economist. Young people passed all the stages of production process, familiarized with basic principles of lean production.    

 Sergey Silikhin, manufacturing engineer of industrial engines assembly shop, Perm Aviation technical school graduate with qualification “Engine building process” stared working in the company only a month ago. Working here he decided to get a higher education and entered extension department of aerospace faculty of Perm National Research Polytechnic University. Sergey told that mostly he was impressed by test station in Novye Lyady where young engine builders were shown a reconstructed adapter stand for PS-90A and PD-14 engine tests.    

Communication of Managing director of JSC UEC-PE, head of Russian Engineering Union Perm regional division, Sergey Popov, was the event highlight. In his report he told about production scope increase, necessity of production capacities reconstruction applying advanced technologies. He went into details about essential points for the company, i.e. digitalization, machinery updating, logistical operations automation.
