Problem definition
The engineering process never stops. Every 4 weeks there are new releases and updates. For all kind of triggers we do have an AsIs process description e.g. what do we need to do when a new market is added, or when a new option is released. However do all these activities fit in a 4 weekly schedule, such as: is the timing OK? Is there enough time to process or gather the information? Can we breakdown a task in smaller steps? Are there triggers earlier in time? How do we get specific worklists for each dataset?
The internship is about to help identify the issues by making the detailed timing schedules. Help to formulate the ToBe situation to overcome the miss fits and there where possible improve the quality and reduce the effort it takes to complete a task.
