Manufacturing Engineer - Rochester, NY $100K / Great Benefits / Relocation Assistance Our client is a joint venture between two global leaders that saw an opportunity to enhance the development and manufacturing of aircraft engine fuel nozzles. They currently employ more than 300 EE's and are in growth mode and have an immediate opening for a Manufacturing Engineer. They will focus on the manufacturing of high precision flow control components such as valves and fuel atomizers. Responsibilities: Monitors and develops processing for flow control components at very tight tolerances in order to meet customer flow requirements. Evaluates flow control component manufacturing processes by conducting process analysis, applying knowledge of product design, fabrication, assembly, tooling, and materials, conferring with suppliers, and soliciting observations from operators/production technicians. Develops flow control component manufacturing processes by studying product requirements; researching, designing, modifying, and testing manufacturing methods and equipment; and conferring with equipment suppliers. Prepares written and graphical work instructions for the communication of manufacturing requirements to production personnel. Improves flow control component manufacturing efficiency by analyzing and planning workflow, space requirements, and equipment layout. Assures process control and reliability for assigned areas. Coordinates input and recommendations, and implements changes that may cross multiple teams or areas. Evaluates and suggests improvements to safety and ergonomic issues encountered in flow control component assembly processes. Assures product and process quality by designing testing methods, testing finished product and process capabilities, and establishing standards to confirm and validate manufacturing process requirements. Determines root cause of failure using statistical methods (e.g. design of experiment, statistical process control) that may result in changes in design, tolerances, or processing methods. Recommends changes to refine and enhance products and processes by applying continuous improvement and key lean manufacturing/production principles and techniques to areas of production. Provides manufacturing decision-making information by calculating production, labor standards, and material costs, reviewing production schedules, and estimating future requirements. May serve as liaison to supplier base. Prepares product and process reports by collecting, analyzing, and summarizing information and trends. Presents findings and underlying rationale to team, supplier, and/or customer. Provide concurrent engineering support and recommend flow control component manufacturing methods to the engineering design team.
