Role Summary

Supports manufacturing in the resolution of manufacturing issues and provides manufacturing with tools and engineering support to implement new products into production and in the resolution of manufacturing issues.  Leads process design functions to determine product flow through the manufacturing cell by use of current engineering and continuous improvement techniques.  Establishes resource requirements and material flow using industrial engineering techniques and internal Company standards.  Analyzes various product structures and processes in order to eliminate inefficiencies and reduce manufacturing costs.  Performs Design of Experiment (DOE) analysis to determine optimum operating parameters to achieve the most efficient cell.  Monitors and controls objectives and costs of assigned project and establishes program time lines. Performs other duties as necessary in support of business objectives.  May provide work direction and/or supervision to other staff. 

Key Responsibilities

  1. Provides manufacturing with tools and technical engineering support to implement new products and processes into production.  Selects, designs, installs, and modifies equipment and fixtures for new product launches and existing products.
  2. Supports manufacturing in the resolution of manufacturing issues by providing ongoing manufacturing engineering support.
  3. Investigate root causes from internal and external audits as well as customer concerns. Complete 8D reports as necessary.
  4. Leads process design functions to determine product flow through the manufacturing cell by use of current engineering and continuous improvement techniques.  Establishes resource requirements and material flow using industrial engineering techniques and internal Company standards to establish optimum cell configuration (creation of most efficient manufacturing cell from material inflow, through production, to outflow).
  5. Analyzes various product structures and processes in order to eliminate inefficiencies and reduce manufacturing costs.  Performs DOE analysis to determine optimum operating parameters by manipulating variables and analyzing how they interact to achieve the most efficient cell measured in terms of processing time, quality and cost.
