The Manufacturing Engineer - Process is responsible for providing innovative and cost-effective processes and solutions required to manufacture products. This includes the design and development of new and improved manufacturing techniques, processes and procedures. He/she develops, maintains, and continuously improves manufacturing processes and techniques using LEAN. He/she develops standards and establishes implementation plans, including training plans for shop floor personnel, and production metrics. He/she collaborates with Engineering and Manufacturing Technology to ensure that processes are created and developed for new products and that return-on-experience is captured for existing processes.

Roles and Responsibilities:
  • Lean Six Sigma.
  • Responsible for the design and continuous improvement of processes using Lean concepts, such as: standardized work instructions, line balancing, layout and work sequence (routing) optimization, training development matrix, Value Stream Mapping, Kaizen/5S workouts, pull processes, TPM (total preventive maintenance), cell design, and quick changeover/batch-size optimization.
  • Drive process optimization using Six Sigma tools such as Design of Experiments.
  • Processes.
  • Leads the production team in designing and continuously improving manufacturing process to improve yield, cycle time and productivity.
  • Implement engineering specifications into processes and provides shop feedback to capture lessons learnt for existing and future designs.
  • Creates, implements, and monitors key performance indicators and metrics on manufacturing process capability and product quality.
  • Responsible for establishing and improving manufacturing process cost.
  • Quality.
  • Responsible for assisting in investigation, root cause analysis and corrective actions tied to manufacturing process quality.
  • Implement process improvements to achieve manufacturing excellence in areas such as process yield (e.g. First Pass Yield, Rolled Throughput Yield), cycle time reduction and productivity.
  • Provide shop floor feedback on product design and manufacturability issues to Engineering and DFMs (e.g. through the use of Engineering Change Requests - ECRs).
  • Review and sign-off on Engineering Change Orders that impact Inventory - including product life cycle issues, obsolescence, etc.
  • Monitoring and reducing process costs.
  • Also responsible for driving continuous improvement projects on manufacturing processes.
  • Evaluates and benchmarks best-in-class manufacturing techniques for Schlumberger and OEM products.
  • Establishes pilot testing and scale up plan for manufacturing technology implementation.
  • Works with Manufacturing and Engineering Metiers and other stakeholders during prove-out testing of processes.
  • Supports the Manufacturing Engineer (DFM) on any specific technology issues/constraints for NPD and RR projects.
  • Coordinates with Manufacturing Metiers and other resources across the company to share and leverage best practices.
  • Responsible for ensuring that manufacturing technology solutions achieve the required quality levels, reliability and consistency.
