The Electrical Design for Manufacturability (eDFM) Engineer is responsible for managing the manufacturability of a product during the New Product and Rapid Response Product Development processes - including the establishment of reliable, stable, and Lean manufacturing processes for subsequent production units. He/she is a key interface between Engineering, Manufacturing Technology and Manufacturing, and will typically be an expert in areas such as process planning (Lean), electronic assembly, test procedures, as well as select special processes such coatings, soldering (Reflow, Wave, Manual), PWB layout and manufacturing process. He/she will also leverage DFX to facilitate the transition of new products to Manufacturing.
Roles and Responsibilities:
- Responsible for the design of processes using Lean concepts, such as: standardized work instructions, and work sequence (routing) optimization, training development matrix, Value Stream Mapping, Kaizen/5S workouts, pull processes, TPM (total preventive maintenance), cell design, and quick changeover/batch-size optimization.
- Also responsible for identifying manufacturing risks on new products and minimizing/eliminating them using Lean and Six Sigma concepts and tools.
- Directs the engineering team on a wide range of manufacturability concepts for PWA or MCM during the design phase to define and eliminate manufacturing risks, and ensure the manufacturability of new electrical designs
- Provides support with manufacturing expertise for drawings to help ensure consistency between component requirements and manufacturing capability.
- For electrical systems, eDFM reports (pFMEA, Cost Modal Analisys, and Procurability) and supports validation of the Contract Manufacturer Board transfer process (TAKAYA test qualification, functional test, board programming and tuning).
- Maintains Design for Manufacturability responsibility while managing the transition of new product to the appropriate Integration or Production Center for pilot series builds.
- Incorporates shop floor and supplier manufacturability issues into future products.
- Responsible for managing manufacturability issues to ensure that established product quality and product yield levels are met at the start of production by Manufacturing
- Responsible to assist with investigation, root cause analysis and corrective action implementation for product quality and product yield issues during product launch or during Engineering Qualification test.
Qualifications and Experience:
- Bachelor in Industrial Electrical Engineering with significant experience or equivalent combination of higher degree and experience.
- Listed technical degree with strong experience (minimum 5 years) in manufacturing. Otherwise, a significant background is required in a technical assignment in a PWA or MCM manufacturing environment - including SMT Reflow line, Wave solder, SPI…
- Norms : - IPC-610, IPC-620, IPC-600, IPC-2221
- Competencies to be kept current:
- Knowledge of LEAN Six Sigma techniques and metrics
- Knowledge of electrical manufacturing processes, including assembly and testing
- Knowledge of equipment and tools
- Product knowledge
- Can function independently and in a team
- Strong decision making

- Strong leadership skills
- Strong mentoring/training skills
- Excellent oral and written communication skills
- Knowledge of ergonomics and safety
- Knowledge of maintenance systems
- Change agent
- Quick learner
- Passion for excellence
- Strong communication skills
