The purpose of the Process Engineer II's role will be to provide technical leadership to operate a major asset at target regarding output, usage of material and energy by meeting the product specifications. To achieve that goal, the Process Engineer II's needs to establish a process of data collection, auditing and preventive maintenance which allows the identification of deviations quickly and suggests the implementation of corrective measures. RCCA analysis, 5 time Why and the JM Solve-It method or Keppner / Tregoe, a 6 Sigma approach should be applied where needed. Furthermore, the Process Engineer II will be responsible for addressing improvements in process efficiency, product quality, and the cost of poor quality for the process, leading process optimization. Together with the electrical engineers, process control architecture will be developed and tuned. In collaboration with the specialists at JMTC, process modeling systems get developed and implemented to further optimize the efficiency of the operations. Based on performance analysis, raw material specifications will be reviewed on a regular frequency and potentially adjusted to drive the expected performance improvement.
- Perform continuous analysis identifying areas for improvement and corrective actions.
- Develop standard control processes and standard operating procedures.
- Defines the process set points for all different product types and creates the associated management tools (e.g. set up sheets in MII, SOP's ...)
- Actively support improvement of safety performance by encouraging safe behaviors of the team and engaging in the process to improve the JM safety culture
- Create and maintain knowledge of latest technologies and evaluate for use in current process and future processes
- Work closely with internal and external resources to resolve technical issues. Shares learnings and findings in a proactive way in the technical community and potentially participates in the JM COE's
- Work with multiple operations / functions to identify process improvement opportunities
- Provide leadership for process redesign efforts e.g. during rebuilds or major investment projects.
- Lead multiple projects and process optimizations in a manufacturing operation
- Provide on-site support during construction and startup to enhance in-plant resource capabilities
- May be required to perform other related duties as assigned
