Responsibilities
Key Responsibilities

Program Launch and Support

  • Develop new process conditions or processing methods for new products including submitting RFQs to suppliers to determine if the solution is feasible considering the annual production volume requirements, appropriate ROI, quality, and reliability of the production process. Select suppliers based on quality, price, and lead time. Summarize these details in a proposal for review by the team
  • Creating, updating PFMEA and PFD to reflect new processes as well as address production and quality concerns with adherence to current standards and lessons learned
  • Work with QA, Engineering, Sales, and Tooling to ensure customer satisfaction including identifying, troubleshooting, and developing solutions to improve upon existing processes to address safety concerns, environmental impacts, quality concerns, improve production uptime and reduce scrap.
  • Participate in and lead Continuous Improvement activities to reduce costs on existing processes
  • Ensure safety, health, and environmental issues, and the company interests are appropriately addressed

 

Industrial Controls

  • Act as a lead controls designer for the facility including network system architecture design (involving collaboration with IT, and Maintenance), training and developing the controls skills of others
  • Design robotic work cell controls systems to implement quoted processes including a robot to molding machine interfacing, safety guard controls, auxiliary automation (e.g. conveyors, vision systems), EOAT, and control cabinets. Build BOM, order materials, and generate electrical schematic drawings. Assemble, wire, program (PLC/Robot), and test control systems. Maintain communication between trades and program management on progress and propose solutions to get back on schedule if necessary.
  • Monitor and maintain vision systems including running challenge parts, adjustments to robot positions, and adjusting vision inspection tools to ensure correct sorting of good and defective parts. Provide suggestions for improvements and implementation to address issues such as false rejects, or identify a trend of the increasing occurrence of specific failure modes that can be attributed to issues upstream.
  • Develop, deploy and support SCADA system for multi-work cell monitoring and real-time alerts for use with Continuous Improvement with the goal of reducing downtime, scrap, quality issues, and cost. Further to this, providing improved traceability of historical process conditions.
  • Develop work instruction and train appropriate personnel on the setup, operation, adjustment, and maintenance of equipment and controls systems
