Patrick van Broeckhuijsen




Category: Internship

Education level: MSc Computer Science / BSc Computer Science


Prodrive Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of world-class electronics. It comprises over 1100 employees and is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe. Our organization is mostly based on two groups: Development and Operations. The Development department is oriented at developing first-class electronic, mechanic and software solutions. The operations department is responsible for production, assembly, testing and life-cycle-management of electronic products and systems in the range of 1 to more than a million pieces per year.

Departments within Prodrive Technologies generate a lot of log that contains information that in certain occasions, need to be analyzed. With the integration of the ELK Stack, Prodrive would be able to solve a growing number of use cases with log analytics. With the ever growing need for more designs and products, time spent investigating logs should be reduced but the quality must be maintained. With ELK the following applications are envisioned:

<ul> <li>Our production department could analyze manufacturing logs in one dashboard view;</li> <li>IT could analyze security loggings for multiple tools;</li> <li>The sales department could analyze customer visits on our website;</li> <il>The test development process could gain insights in production environment and link these results to test logs in order to improve product quality; </il> <il>Creating visual overviews provides insights in unrevealed relations and make it easier to detect analogies.</il> </ul>


Currently we are looking into ELK Stack to improve logging and log analysis. Multiple tools will be used to gain advantage in log analyzing. You will be responsible for investigating the possibilities with the use of ELK within the environment, as well as deployment.
