Javier Puga Manasé

Software tester for DECKEL MAHO Pfronten GmbH

Identifying and remedying faults


Javier Puga Manasé ensures that the machine tools built at DECKEL MAHO Pfronten GmbH work without any faults. The 32-year-old primarily tests the software of machines with a lot of customer-specific adaptations. He already gets involved during the development phase in order to put each control system through its paces: “The customized machines pose a fresh challenge every time, because the features always vary due to the many different options,” says the Spaniard describing the complexity of his tasks. 

He requires a high degree of concentration for his work. Moreover teamwork is required: If Puga discovers a software error, for example, he will resolve it in cooperation with a software developer. Alongside the regular, project-related tasks, he also looks after acute software problems on machines already operating at the customers’ premises. “These cases have priority to ensure it is possible to start work again as quickly as possible.”

The Spaniard joined DMG MORI in 2016, just a few years after leaving his home country together with his wife following the completion of his master’s degree in industrial engineering. “The economic situation in Germany was much better, which meant both of us were able to find interesting jobs in our professional field.” Javier Puga Manasé has been working at DECKEL MAHO Pfronten GmbH since 2017. He views the job as the opportunity to start a long career: “I am able to live up to my potential in a large corporation and there are numerous opportunities for further training.” From the beginning he has therefore taken advantage of internal and external training programs. “For example, I took part in programming training,” said the engineer. “This means I can be deployed in an even more flexible way. So I will not only test software but also develop it in the future.”
