The Role

The role is responsible for the development of novel manufacturing processes from concept through to commissioning and qualification. Applicants must be able to demonstrate a proven capability in developing manufacturing processes including system integration. The successful applicant will be the first point of contact for process queries within the team.

The successful applicant will have a strong background in manufacturing process development and also have a working knowledge of PLC systems, preferably Siemens. Many processes involve the assembly of components; therefore knowledge of components handling and automation is desirable but not essential. In cases of no or limited knowledge in this area, the candidate will demonstrate an aptitude to learn and develop expertise in this subject.

A good knowledge of statistical techniques for measuring process capability and maintaining process control would be an advantage, including an understanding of six-sigma and the ability to develop, establish and maintain capable production processes.

Although knowledge of munitions and explosive processing is an advantage, it is not essential as training will be given. Experience of general manufacturing and engineering processes and techniques is essential.

A further important part of the role will be the support of continuous improvement activities on existing processes, which will involve the planning and introduction of process changes in a controlled and timely manner.

  • Plan and manage manufacturing process development activities within capital budgets, whilst providing solutions and processes that are robust, timely, and cost effective which meet with customer expectations.
  • Writing of Statements of Requirement for specification of Commercial Off The Shelf processes, and Technical Requirements Specifications for novel, bespoke or adapted processes.
  • To coordinate development activities to establish supporting data that ensures the manufacturing processes are based on a sound understanding of the materials which are being processed and the technology adopted for the plant and equipment.
  • To coordinate and manage a project data file capturing salient data including design and rationale, trials data, process definition including drawings and specifications, certification and safety data. This data is to be controlled through the company's Product Lifecycle Management system, Teamcenter.

What BAE Systems are looking for, from you:
