The Solution Design Manager takes ownership for the concept design of any service delivery operation, general external flows, inbound/dispatch areas of the CFC (focusing on space capacity, operational efficiencies and throughput) as well as developing concepts for future Ocado product offerings and their effective integration into new and existing CFCs.
