A Fascination with Teamwork

Fortaco Operational Development’s Kamil Zdeb studies motorsports to learn about improvement in teamwork.

When he studied computer science in university, Kamil Zdeb learned to use machine learning to detect predisposition to heart attacks. Now, he’s putting that experience to work for Fortaco. “When you compare medicine to industry,” he says, “the problems are different but the solutions are similar. Machine learning and data analysis can be used to solve production problems, too.”

Recently, Zdeb developed a proof-of-concept heat map of Fortaco’s Jaszbereny plant. Also called a spaghetti diagram, an overhead camera records all movements of employees. “Based on this video, we can see where people are moving, optimize routes, and move tools to more convenient places, for example,” says Zdeb. “It’s not a factory-dependent tool, and we’ll use it wherever we think there’s a problem we can solve with it. Operational Development’s role is to be out in front, to be proactive. It’s important to have solutions ready for use.”

In the year and a half Zdeb has worked with Operational Development (OD), things have changed a lot. “We no longer advertise our services, and people come to us. They know what we can do.” He says the OD team has more work than it can handle, so like a medical team in triage, they have to evaluate the patients. “We evaluate two things when choosing projects. First, how much will it help, and, second, how engaged they are with making the best tool possible—because actions speak louder than words.”

Zdeb has a fascination with the way human beings work together, in both work settings and beyond. Outside of work, he’s developed a fascination with racing, IndyCar in particular, the highest class of regional North American open-wheel racing. (Like Formula 1 but with a wider range of tracks. F1 cars maneuver faster, but IndyCars have a higher top speed.)

Motorsports and industry are similar, Zdeb says, in the way cooperation leads to constant improvement and better performance. “I’m not a gearhead who knows about the internal workings of the cars. But I really appreciate the machines they’re building and the way the teams cooperate to achieve their results. Since IndyCars are pretty similar – they can only develop some components – the differences in performance come from how well the engineers cooperate and how they work with the driver.”

Using similar tools to those he employs at Fortaco, Zdeb analyzed 2022 statistics available on the IndyCar website. “I analyzed how every driver competed, the circuits he competed in, the distribution of top finishes, and I reached the conclusion that hiring the right people and equipping them with the proper tools are major factors in success. All other things equal, the best teams win.” He also reached a conclusion about perception levels, “When someone is either the best or the worst, we’re likely to remember him if he’s having a good season. But the drivers who are consistently good seem to fly under our radar.”

If there’s a lesson there for the industrial race, it may be that glory isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. A team that’s firing on all cylinders may not get the attention it deserves, but it may be doing some of the best work in the industry.

Conquering Fear On and Off the Factory Floor

Mateusz Kożuch likes extreme sports because they teach him about the nature of fear. And that has application on the factory floor.

They call it a “dream jump,” though you’ve got to be a special kind of dreamer to climb hundreds of meters up a tower and leap, free falling 90 percent of the way down before a system of dynamic ropes and pulleys bring you to a halt. Fortaco’s Mateusz Kożuch is that kind of person. And he’s equally enthusiastic about manufacturing.

Kożuch got his first taste of production at Toyota, where he started as a trainee on the factory floor, responsible for the development of databases that kept track of foundry machines and mold breakdowns. At the time, he was a recent electronic engineering graduate with a knowledge of IT, and he was puzzled that he hadn’t been assigned to the IT department. “But I quickly realized it was a great opportunity, because I was developing a tool for people in production. I could make the database work for the people who actually used it.” After his trainee program, he stayed with Toyota as a freelancer hired to develop digital tools. “I loved discovering the manufacturing world through Toyota eyes,” he says. “And, when I joined Fortaco, I was very happy to see that we use a lot of Toyota thinking in our production.”

Kożuch works in Operations Development. He’s based in Wrocław, though the OD team travels all over to Fortaco business sites, working closely with the people they build solutions for. He considers it one of OD’s missions to free people from boring or unnecessary tasks. “When OD began,” he says, “we were mainly focused on the production environment. But now we’ve branched out to focus on quality, finance, and even HR.” Wherever there’s a job to be made more efficient, Kożuch is interested.

For HR, the OD team has developed a succession planning application. It allows local and global HR leaders to assess the criticality of positions, and then create a succession plan. “The app lets us track competences and make sure the ones needed for a position are developed,” Kożuch says. “If HR thinks the position of Application Development Specialist is critical, for example, then we’d need to make sure we’ve developed power apps and power automate skills in a potential successor. The app helps us create a plan and assign training. It’s a great tool to help the company be ready for change.”

In his spare time, Kożuch is attracted to things that at first appear intimidating—like adrenaline sports. “When you have confirmation that what you’re doing is safe, then everything else is just in our heads and we can confront our fears. That’s what keeps me coming back.” He recently climbed 222 meters to the top of a decommissioned chimney in Głogów, where he leapt into thin air. “It was six seconds of free falling.”

He finds parallels on the factory floor. “It’s all in how you look at things. Some look at a goal and see obstacles. But in OD we’d never say that something is impossible.” In fact, everything is possible is our unofficial motto, but Kożuch wants to keep that quiet. “If we advertise it too loudly, it will create more work than we can ever do!”
