Responsibilities:

  • Analyze our manufacturing processes and identify drivers of variation that reduce throughput and quality.
  • Propose process improvements to reduce variation and improve throughput. Employ a toolbox of skills and techniques such as Kaizen, 5S, Flow, and Lean Manufacturing to drive improvement.
  • Lead problem solving teams to implement solutions. Use visual management systems and lean tools (A3, 5S, etc.) to drive continuous improvement and empower team members to manage their own output & quality.
  • Monitor/Audit manufacturing processes/inputs for any variable that may impact quality or throughput (new input materials and new/changed processes) to assure that quality & throughput are maintained.
  • Propose quality requirements for manufacturing processes and finished product outputs where requirements are lacking (incl. standards and methods for inspection, testing and evaluation).
  • Assist with quality planning for any new product launches.

Position Requirements:

  • 4 year Bachelor’s degree or Master’s Degree in one of the following engineering disciplines -Manufacturing, Mechanical, Plant, Electrical or Chemical or equivalent work experience.
  • 5+ years actual process engineering experience or quality responsibilities that include process improvement piece. Management of larger system process control a plus. Working knowledge of ISO 9000, quality tools, and lean manufacturing. Preference given to Lean Green or Blackbelt.
