Manufacturing Engineer


What you’ll do...

As a Manufacturing Project Engineer, you will lead the mechanical integration efforts for select product development of exhaust gas analyzer measurement benches and systems. You will participate in the manufacturing/quality portion of product development and release, including assembly and test procedures, quality checks, quality tracking in production, and SPC. A primary responsibility will be to continuously improve our processes and efficiency with modern lean manufacturing methods. Additionally, day to day activities will include:

  • Design and develop analyzers, benches, and sampling systems for monitoring gaseous and particulate pollutants
  • Perform detailed mechanical design and engineering analysis using Solidworks
  • Specify components. Work closely with suppliers for purchased and fabricated parts to ensure quality and timely delivery
  • Identify and initiate activities for thorough validation of design, responsible for mechanical robustness of all products
  • Analyze, test, and modify designs to improve performance
  • Perform root cause and DFMEA analyses
  • Optimize designs for low to medium (from 10 to 1000 units per month) volume production yields
  • Create specification for test stands
  • Write test procedures
  • Interface between Engineering and Production
  • Provide training and technical support to manufacturing, technicians, operators, assemblers, and sales as needed
  • Create or maintain templates or certificates for reporting
  • Write internal reports as to status and technical merit of design/development
  • Know and understand applicable regulations (PN-PTI, 1065, EU RDE, EU HDV, ISO 17025, etc..)
  • Train and supervise engineers, technicians, operators, and assemblers
  • Lead efforts on test stand specification and development
  • Define database requirements and testing
  • Responsibility for test procedures
  • Create test certificates demonstrating compliance with regulations
  • Implement Statistical Process Control techniques for high volume production
  • Continuous improvement of manufacturing processes. Maximize yield and production efficiency
  • Manage yield/scrap issues (root cause analysis, vendors, etc.)
  • Help train technicians to diagnose and repair problem units
  • Assist with managing and maintaining ISO 17025 and ISO 9001 requirements
  • Assist with logistics for scaling the manufacturing lines demand fluctuations

Skills/Qualifications you have...
