Technical system planners (steel and metal construction) work mainly in our construction department, but also at the customer’s premises (in Germany or abroad) if they have to oversee or survey a site. They create drawings and technical documents for steel frames for glass melting plants, distributor channels and other structures. They normally do this work on a computer using CAD (Computer Aided Design) programs. Using the information from the structural engineer and the project manager, they design and detail a three-dimensional model of the steel construction, taking into account the requirements of the relevant technical standards. In addition to their drawing work, they also perform engineering calculations. For example, they work out steelwork quantities, create parts lists and assembly drawings, which graphically describe the work to be done and give all the dimensions. They supervise the design and construction processes of construction projects and ensure that the required documents are available at the right time. Technical system design planners (steel and metal construction) administer the different drawing versions created for the project and ensure the project data is properly stored.
Care and attention to detail are important for producing precise drawings in accordance with the standards and requirements of the project. Knowledge of industrial practices and engineering are required to create assembly drawings and details of construction components. Mathematics is required for engineering calculations. Knowledge of physics is helpful, because designs have to consider aspects such as structural engineering, building physics and thermal properties. The production of CAD drawings requires some previous knowledge of data processing.
