Collaborate with stakeholder teams like Manufacturing Engineering, Packaging Engineering, Logistics, Supply Chain teams, IT systems Developers, and Material Planning to prioritize and maximize operational efficiency of Production Control Operations team.

More Uses of the Manufacturing Engineer Toolkit:

  • Provide technical support to manufacturing equipment and processes by interacting with production and maintenance personnel to identify, diagnose, and correct process problems.
  • Coordinate: partner with production technicians or other departments to enhance manufacturing processes, troubleshoot issues and provide technical guidance.
  • Arrange that your organization serves on technical teams to accomplish organization objectives for product supply, quality, cost, new product introduction, and sustaining Manufacturing Engineering activities.
  • Manage work with team members to solve customer issues related to quality and design; solve issues related to the process and equipment and implement changes to production lines.
  • Initiate: partner with Manufacturing Engineers to develop the data integrations that enable visibility into manufacturing production, equipment, processes, and product tests.
  • Ensure all processes are set up, operating and monitored in accordance with the requirements set forth by the Manufacturing Engineer and customer, and support a smooth product transition into manufacturing.
  • Ensure your corporation provides engineering support in planning, financial justification, start up activities, scale up processes, implementation, and process improvements.
  • Warrant that your organization participates in installation, troubleshooting, failure investigations, and corrective action of material, process, and mechanical problems.
  • Establish that your group complies; cross functional and cross organization partnership with product quality, Manufacturing Engineering, purchasing, sourcing, new product introduction, and logistics teams to support customer success.
  • Drive: partner with programs and customer base to identify technical capability and hardware needs to ensure efficient, high quality results.
  • Manage work with product development engineering and Manufacturing Engineering to translate design requirements into manufacturing requirements to achieve design for manufacturability.
  • Ensure your organization complies; cross functional and cross organization partnership with product quality, order fulfillment, Manufacturing Engineering, sourcing, new product introduction, and logistics teams to support customer success.
  • Collaborate with production control and Manufacturing Engineering teams to identify and resolve ready work constraints that are impeding critical path flow of operations.
  • Establish that your group develops, implements, and maintains methods, operation sequence and processes in the fabrication of parts, components, sub assemblies and final assemblies.
  • Make sure that your team supports manufacturing and provides manufacturing with tools and engineering support to implement new products into production and in the resolution of manufacturing issues.
  • Liaise with engineering, purchasing, operations, Manufacturing Engineering, to achieve on time delivery at optimum cost with optimum inventory levels.
  • Manage work with the project teams to identify new process capabilities, perform product validation and facilitate transition from development to production release.
  • Manage work with product management/product engineering on concepts to develop new technologies and/or minimize impact to existing equipment.
  • Lead: clearly understand existing processes to provide support for manufacturing process technology roadmap and operations strategy, and represent Manufacturing Engineering on complaint handling unit and change control board meetings.
  • Oversee: work closely with production operators, supervisors, and other functional teams to continually improving product flow and quality.
  • Manage work with the core team (Design, Quality, Supplier Quality and Packaging Engineering) on new product development and implementation.
  • Prioritize daily work and ongoing projects for the Manufacturing Engineering department to ensure alignment with overall strategy for plant and to deliver on customer commitments.
  • Confirm your organization assures that review to ensure employee safety are completed during process and that a review for safety takes place with any process and/or equipment change.
  • Initiate: work concurrently with Manufacturing Engineering, Manufacturing and Quality Engineering groups in starting up production of new and improved products.
  • Troubleshoot existing products and processes to recommend and develop/design engineering solutions to address capacity, cost, and quality issues.
  • Make sure that your strategy coordinates production activities with other functions as material, marketing, new product development, customer service, Manufacturing Engineering, inspection, and the like.
  • Develop, implement, and manage process improvement projects related to improving equipment reliability standardizing your preventive maintenance program, and developing your workforce.
  • Confirm your operation interacts with Manufacturing Engineers, supplier quality engineers and customer quality engineers to drive improvement activities and ensure product and processes meet or exceed customer expectations.
  • Arrange that your business supports production personnel by resolving process and material related quality problems in support of the various manufacturing departments.
  • Manage work with quality control and Manufacturing Engineers on identified issues related to design, components, processes, documentation, etc.
