Technical Mastery:

a. The PIE develops mastery and understanding for the processes they are assigned to and uses that mastery to deliver improved TE, quality, yield, and thru-put. This includes understanding the physics and chemistry of how the production systems are designed to function, their limitations, and the impact of variation on thru-put, reliability, yield / cullage and quality.

b. PIEs are qualified in the following areas and are expected to use them to produce results.

* Planned and unplanned downtime, rate, yield, and quality loss data collection methodology, analysis, interpretation and opportunity analysis.

* Loss analysis & TE improvement plan development, plan execution leadership, and results tracking

Review and update on a weekly basis.

d. Develop, Own, and Manage the TE / RE Improvement Process for packaging and process, yield & cullage, and quality goals by production system.

This includes Weekly, Period and Year to Date results reviews incorporating:

* Updated current and future state Loss Trees and Loss analyses.

* Production system target rates determination & speed mapping

* TE/RE improvement plans, activities, progress, and tracking (development, maintenance and update). TE/RE recovery plans for new products / system alterations expected to negatively impact

Required Education/Professional Experiences:

* BS Degree in Engineering, or related discipline required.

* Ability to conduct assessments, audits and evaluation to measure progress. Solid problem solving and action planning skills. Must possess effective oral and written communication skills.

* Solid understanding of variable/period costs. Must be self-motivated, results and action oriented.

* Ability to make independent and sound decisions. Production/Maintenance skills will be heavily relied on to improve plant performance and TPM initiatives.
