With its headquarters in Maassluis and a worldwide network of dedicated Lely Centers for customized sales and service, the Lely Group is active in more than sixty countries and has over 1,200 employees.

Main Tasks:

Lely is an innovative company, which is active in the agri sector. Improving the life of the farmer is what we are striving for. We do this by the means of creating innovative (robot) solutions. Lely farmers are the first entrepreneurs who manage more robots than human employees. But how does a human being manage robots and what do they need?
During this internship you will start leading your own research. The goal is to answer a number of main questions. 
The main questions that will have to be answered are:
1. How does a person manage a robot? By answering sub-questions you will have to find an answer to this question. For example, what does the transformation to a robot farm mean for farmers (as a man)? And how do you treat a robot (as a manager)?
2. What do farmers need to do to manage robots? You can think of sub-questions like, do they need different tools? Which Management systems are the best fits for robots? And are there management theories applicable to robots?
3. Why do farmers switch to robots? Do they think this is the future? Or is the main thing that it is easier for them?
During the research you will find more questions, you also have plenty of room to investigate these further.
You will do the research on the product development department in collaboration with the product management department. More than 200 people work at these departments, from engineers to product specialists. Here we design our robots and we think about what the farm of the future looks like, how we will build and market it.
