When improvements are made, assist in the documentation of new processes and techniques utilizing CAD software.
  • Apply Lean Manufacturing Methods. Analyze production techniques and machine performance. During the first 90 days, focus on one key line (identified by supervisor) to develop, implement and document process improvements.

  • Support Assembly and Testing Processes from Concept through Prove-Out. Work closely with mechanical and program engineers to design and repair assembly and testing processes. Assist in identification of areas for improvement, documentation and operator training.
  • Facilitate Tool and Fixture Purchases. Develop the business justification for, select, design, procure and assist in installation of tools and fixtures utilized to maximize line performance.
