May incorporate inspection and test requirements into fabrication and assembly plan.

Develops manufacturing processes and quality engineering specifications. Prepares manufacturing statement of work (MSOW). Develops manufacturing processes that are applicable to statistical process control. Provides leadership and guidance to the organization regarding design concepts and specification requirements to best utilize equipment and manufacturing techniques.

Leads program Integrated Product Teams. Works with vendors and project partners in technology research & development. Mentors and develops junior engineers.

Responsibilities

Lead integrated project teams to understand customer requirements, thermoplastic material capabilities, and lead or support technology development projects. Work with peers, subcontractors and vendors to develop solutions to meet customer requirements for composite structures.

Lead development projects from planning through completion and delivery. Develop manufacturing processes for prototype fabrication. Interface and coordinate with external material manufacturers & process development stakeholders.

Lead tool design, fabrication and inspection of tooling manufactured by outside vendors. Analyze existing processes and make recommendations for improvements. Take initiative to implement improvements.

Provide technical solutions to a wide range of complex problems. Work to general objectives but independently plan, develop and implement solutions. Advise and guide metal material process development, specifically welding processes.

Stay abreast of composite technologies through conferences, forums, and industry engagements. Generate patent applications as needed.

Contribute to innovation & technology strategic plans and technology road maps. Support and/or lead new business proposals. Participate in cross-company technology interest groups.

Qualifications

The successful candidate will typically have a bachelor's degree in engineering and a minimum of 20 years of related experience. Desired candidate will have extensive knowledge of the aerospace industry and experience with composite and metal fabrication in a prototype production environment.

Candidate must have strong leadership, communication and collaboration skills. Computer skills using MS Office and experience with CAD tools. R&D experience preferable.
