Senior Manufacturing Engineer

Position: Senior Manufacturing engineer

Location: Westbury NY

Plan, design and communicate sequence of operations; N/C Programming, required tooling, jigs and fixtures; layout of plant; and necessary equipment utilization and/or modification to machine, form, weld, assemble, test, package and transport component parts and/or final products in support of the total manufacturing process. Investigate, identify and resolve engineering problems involved in the manufacturing of the Component's products to provide a smooth transition into efficient production.

Responsibilities

  • Support production activities to achieve shipment schedules through the development and design of methods, processes, specifications, tooling, jigs, fixtures and/or equipment modification in conformance with basic and sound engineering principles, policies and practices.
  • Assure most efficient, economic and productive plant layout, material flow and machine and labor utilization by planning the layout of factory machinery, the sequence of manufacturing operations and the specific procedures required for the fabrication, assembly and/or test of Component's Group products. Prepare and carry out plans to change part or material specifications, manufacturing methods, material or product routing, etc. and/or devise holding mechanisms and required tooling to facilitate product manufacture.
  • Reduce the cost to manufacture products and increase current efficiencies through research of newer or advanced technologies and development of proposals for automation and/or the redesign of methods, tooling, machine attachments, etc. Also, efficient methodizing will reduce direct labor and, therefore, product cost. Prepare cost estimates involved in the changing from the present to new methods and estimate cost savings as the result of such changes. Recommend or determine the critical make or buy decisions on the basis of the Component's Group technical capabilities, equipment, labor and available capital.
  • Assure production of quality parts, components and products by verifying machine, equipment and tool efficiency and performance. Investigate and initiate corrective action of problems or deficiencies
  • Assure timely introduction of new products and/or methods by communicating and documenting required production operations through the preparation of operation sheets, manufacturing data base entries (ERP (Routings), (Setup sheet info.), (AutoDesk/AutoCad)), visual aides and numerical control programs if required. In addition, the Senior Manufacturing Engineer is expected to evaluate schedule milestones in early phases of design and prototype work, monitor costs, and assure quality and serviceability are considered during design and manufacture.
  • Plan, design and communicate sequence of operations; N/C Programming, required tooling, jigs and fixtures; layout of plant; and necessary equipment utilization and/or modification to machine, form, weld, assemble, test, package and transport component parts and/or final products in support of the total manufacturing process. Investigate, identify and resolve engineering problems involved in the manufacturing of the Component's products to provide a smooth transition into efficient production.
  • Assist in the development and design of new products by providing advice on and determining the productibility of design concepts and the specification requirements that best utilize existing equipment, technologies and manufacturing techniques. In this capacity, the Senior Manufacturing Engineer will inform design engineers of manufacturing limitations and may also advise Manufacturing Engineering Management of new capabilities that competitive designs will require for the factory. Provide manufacturing input and provide a smooth transition into efficient production.

We expect

A Bachelors degree in Manufacturing Engineering or a related discipline or the equivalent in experience. Basic knowledge of CAD/CAM is necessary. A full understanding of manufacturing process and the ability to full apply the theories and concepts of manufacturing engineering is essential. Typically, the degreed incumbent would require 4 - 5 years directly related experience to perform at this level. Eight to ten years of varied machine shop tool making or other specialized manufacturing experience would be required for non-degreed employees to perform at this level.
