Job Description:

Extensive travel required to support program launches at Assembly Plants in the United States. This role focuses on the body/frame of the vehicle-very hands on role. Workers with Tool and Die Experience have been proven to be successful in roles like this. In our pursuit to create a world with Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions and Zero Congestion, Global Manufacturing Engineering team is challenging the limits on what is possible and embracing agility as it reimagines how to build the next generation of vehicles. Our diverse team of Manufacturing Engineers play a crucial role in transforming our facilities through implementing the adoption of ground-breaking technologies. From raw sheet metal to final assembly, this team is reinventing the tools and processes that will enable to deliver on our promise to create an all-electric future. Position Overview The Dimensional Performance Engineer's (DPE) primary role is to improve the dimensional quality of BIW sheet metal subassemblies for a vehicle program from prototype build through launch. The tasks include performing tooling 101 and tool repeatability studies in body shop weld tools, reviewing/analyzing dimensional data (CMM, scan, etc.), and working with suppliers to improve the quality of their incoming parts. The DPE is expected to lead the dimensional problem-solving activities in their respective area, to ensure the dimensional requirements are met. Demonstrate Leadership --- Independently establishes action plans to accomplish the completion of a job or project. --- Evaluates body shop manufacturing processes and equipment for assigned areas, and identifies opportunities for improvement --- Directs the design, development and/or improvements of manufacturing processes and equipment for assigned areas. --- Coordinates input from internal/external customers to assist with problem solving, and ultimately improve quality/resolve issues --- Actively identifies new areas for learning and takes advantage of learning opportunities. Roles & Responsibilities --- Improve dimensional quality for Body and General Assembly parts and subassemblies in launch/steady state production driving continuous improvement in % on target metrics and reducing variation. --- Responsible to ensure and monitor body and general assembly integration. --- Use Red X and other problem-solving tools to quickly and effectively find the root cause and correct quality and dimensional problems. --- Lead dimensional problem-solving activities related to dimensional requirements, processes and final vehicle status quality. --- Manage and work with suppliers as required to correct and improve their parts dimensionally. --- Implement and monitor the dimensional Process Control/Measurement Plan for BIW subassemblies and assemblies and ultimately the finished vehicle. --- Provide process and tooling support. Recommend tooling changes and adjustments to help improve the build process. --- Complete tooling 101 and repeatability studies on tooling as required. --- Support laser scanning activities such as verifying nominals and creation and creating additional measurement points. --- Support program launch/Issue Resolution Teams as needed with dimensional studies and problem solving. Required Skill Set --- Thorough knowledge of body shop tooling and manufacturing processes. --- Ability to collect, analyze, and interpret dimensional data. (Ex : supplier data, laser scans) --- Proficiency with laser scanning and other metrology methods to measure parts and subassemblies. --- Able to use GDIS to review, analyze, and monitor plant dimensional data. --- Familiar with using UG/Vis Mockup to cut sections, take nominal measurements, and review product geometry for use in problem solving. --- Knowledge of datum schemes and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing. --- High level of oral and written communication skills --- High level of interpersonal skills to work effectively with product and manufacturing engineering as well as plant personnel and suppliers --- High level of analytical abilities to solve complex problems --- Facilitator/Leadership skills --- Proficient in Microsoft software --- Automotive manufacturing launch experience --- Knowledge of computer software as it pertains to manufacturing. --- Knowledge of body and trim assembly processes --- This position may require extensive travel to assembly facilities in North America Education --- Engineering degree desired but not required, experience level to compensate Work Site Description: Preferred Work Schedule: First shift core hours flexible as required to support the team.
