The Cable Process Engineer develops new processes, evaluates existing processes, and configures manufacturing systems to add capability, reduce cost, improve sustainability, and develop best practices within the production process.  The main focus of the Process Engineer’s work is on creating and maintaining reliable and safe manufacturing systems while improving production rates, efficiencies, yields, costs, and changeovers.

Essential Functions/ Responsibilities:

  • Develop and maintain core cable manufacturing processes to ensure processes are capable and scalable.
  • Work collaboratively with Operations and Quality to evaluate process health, identify improvement opportunities, and define factory performance metrics. Execute key optimization projects to achieve desired quality, cost, and capacity.
  • Work collaboratively with Product Engineering in the design, development and improvement of processes, tooling, and raw materials.
  • Support QA through implementation of tools for risk-based process assessment, supporting investigations into suspected nonconforming materials, driving appropriate preventive and/or corrective actions, and creating process control plans.
  • Support MEG in machine and tooling development by specifying project requirements and defining/executing qualification activities to ensure requirements are met.
  • Apply appropriate statistical tools and six sigma methodologies to evaluate and control process variables. Collect and analyze production and engineering data to draw conclusions and recommend actions.
  • Perform engineering calculations applying the principles of physics and mathematics for process or equipment, including conceptual, scheme, and detail design.
  • Connect resources and stakeholders from various groups to promote effective collaboration while managing to the cost, timeline, and resource constraints of projects.
  • Work effectively with process technicians to plan and execute engineering trials.
  • Document standard operating procedures and providing training to associates as needed.
