I’m Juuso, a MSc in Engineering. My studies in the fields of automation and electrical engineering, applied mathematics, and industrial engineering have provided me with a good basis for helping our customers tackle their problems.
I grew up in Salo in Southwest Finland, and later moved to Helsinki, the capital city of Finland, to study. As a kid, I spent my evenings and weekends on basketball courts, both playing and officiating. From those days, I still have locker room humor, excellent teamwork skills, and the ability to let insults and slanders go in one ear and out the other.
In these days, in my spare time, I try to exercise whenever I get the chance. I bike to work, and always carry my jogging shoes with me on business trips. I also do photography – I think is nice to capture those small everyday moments with my camera.
In my personal life, I always have some project going on: a new programming language, a new photo editing software, some bike-related projects, or the setup of an online store, to name but a few examples.
Most of my time, however, I spend with my 4-year-old daughter, marveling at the world together. Sometimes I wonder which one of us teaches the other more.
Experience in the field
I have worked in various roles and diverse projects, various types of software deliveries for multiple types of industrial applications. As examples I could mention the development and implementation of an internal testing system in three different countries, and deliveries of various systems for dozens of ships that now sail the many seas of the world, from the Arctic Ocean all the way to the tropical waters of the Caribbean. I have done MES deliveries in six countries and participated in every phase of the MES lifecycle, from sales to maintenance. In projects, my tasks have ranged from deliveries, implementation, application development and system design to project management.
I listen to the customer. I always try to find them a solution that a) is cost-efficient and quick to implement, b) is cheap to maintain and c) fulfills the customer need. The balancing of these three is not always so easy. It requires not only a true understanding of the benefits and technical possibilities pursued by the customer, but also the ability to assess future needs so that they can also be taken into account when designing the solution. I shine at MES projects. OEE, self-control and quality, warehouse operations, traceability, revenues and expenses, reporting and integrations to different systems are all examples of functions that I work with almost on a daily basis.
