We are Judith de Jonge, Margreet Wiersma, Eva Wissink and Heleen Wissink, all 20 or 21 years old and we are students from the University of Groningen. We are currently studying for the third year of the programme in Business Administration. This means that we will be working on our graduation project over the next few months. Our specialization will be Technology Management. This means that we will focus on topics such as logistics, production, the organization of labour, data processing and the role of technology in companies.

For our graduation project we wanted a company where we could look at research questions in the field of technology management. We came across ESKA’s website on the internet. We thought it would be a suitable manufacturing company, so we contacted ESKA.

For our research, we needed ESKA to describe a complaint. We contacted Bert Bodewes, who suggested an interesting issue concerning the flatness of the board. Our research involves making a diagnosis and then conducting theoretical research in relation to that diagnosis. Our research will take place in the period between February and early July. We intend to explore the complaint regarding the flatness of the board, and arrive at insights that will help to tackle and reduce the problem.
