Soojinthiran works as a cost and materials planner at X-FAB Sarawak, our largest production site located in Malaysia. To manufacture semiconductors, a lot of raw materials and parts are needed, not just the silicon wafers that are the basis for the microchips we manufacture, but also chemicals, gases, wear and spare parts for key equipment and much more. In his position, Soojinthiran needs to ensure that the supply of silicon wafers meets the production schedule. If there is too little material on stock, the continuity of production is in danger. On the other hand, if you maintain a huge inventory, this is negatively impacting overall profitability. With his cost estimates and inventory analyses, Soojinthiran helps X-FAB Sarawak to optimize and strategically manage its resources.
Not only does he need to master the number crunching part, but also to communicate and work with people from various departments across the organization. When asked what he likes about his work, Soojinthiran describes it as follows: “The diversity of the work that I do ensures that no day is like any other. Every day is an opportunity to work on something new and challenging.” At the end of the day he is happy when he can check off all items on his to-do list and relax while enjoying some delicious home-cooked meals with family.
It is okay to make mistakes. Be more motivated to not repeat the same mistake again.
