Ensure profitable and successful product development phase
Assess product maturity and feasibility by initiating tests and trials vs. Customer Requirements and Critical Characteristics (revise DVP and PVT, engage trials, testing, prototyping and simulations whenever necessary).
Create and update product and process data (Bill Of Materials, Purchased Part Specifications, Critical Process Parameters, drawings, DFMEA) in PLM and ensure effective handover to other Functions.
Track profitability by updating Part Cost Calculations and take necessary actions for mitigating deviations.
Supervise relevant prototyping activities related to awarded projects.
Support Operations with concept definition of process (layout, PFMEA), equipment and capex.
Support Tooling and Quality Departments with the definition of tools and gauges.
Support production phase until end of production
Support start-up of serial tools and processes, including run at rate and production launch.
Support Engineering Changes with focus on Customer requirements, feasibility and profitability.
Support continuous improvement
Ensure continuous improvement by collection and implementation of lessons learnt from Pre-Development, Product Development, Product Validation and Serial Production phases.
Support MOVE, VA/VE activities and material standardization.
Ensure smooth and effective operations in the corresponding Product Line
Support Product Design Team tasks in all situations defined by the Head of Product Development.
Quality – Safety – Environment
Ensure that product development is conducted and documented according to Autoneum’s quality system.
Ensure compliance of mandatory and regulatory quality, safety and environmental standards.
Reduce environmental impact of developed products and processes by integrating Design For Sustainability principles.
