Context of this position

You start during the earliest phase of the Product Life Cycle. Based on the supply chain risk we define the complex parts for a new product. You will lead the process to bring one or more of these so-called complex parts towards industrialization. You will have a pivotal role in supply chain design and supplier selection process. When the supplier has been selected you will start the industrialization process with the supplier. Since the teams develop high tech modules against challenging timeline, most of the time material availability is at risk. We do apply concurrent engineering when creating the design and parts/module manufacturing at the supplier. While doing this you have to make sure you manage the timely industrialization of these complex parts during the execution of the manufacturing process at the supplier.

Examples of QLTCS roadmap targets you secure for the first deliveries, ramp up and volume are:

  • Quality: Analyze supplier feedback, Process FMEAs, optimize manufacturing flow (across suppliers), Yield, Material Notifications, Quality-docs.
  • Logistic: Supplier cycle time, Move rate at supplier, Flexibility of the move rate, Material availability.
  • Technology: Design FMEA’s, Technical issue management at supplier, Completeness design documentation.
  • Costs: Cost of Goods and total cost of ownership, Supplier investments.
  • Sustainability: Refurbishment/repair capabilities, Re-use of modules/parts

During this process, some of the foreseen risks become issues.
Until the part/module is industrialized you are responsible to mitigate and solve these problems with the teams and supplier. This includes organizing a successful multi-disciplinary team with sufficient solving power, as well as regular report out towards senior management.

Travel required: 20-25%
