Description

Work Arrangement

This position will require the employee to be onsite full-time. The work location will be Bedford, Indiana.

The Role

The Launch Process Engineering Team excels in the development, testing, implementation and execution of new casting programs, platforms and technology. This group is unique in that by working with and across multiple levels of the GM technical groups, vendors and suppliers, the complex problems of high pressure die casting are developed into controlled manufacturing processes.

The Specific Purpose of this position is to support the Launch Team activities and programs as directed by GPS ME. By working in and with a cross functional team of die casting engineers, you will perform casting manufacturing projects by following a systematic engineering process of evaluation, development, validations, technology transfer leading into and supporting the production launch and processing. Specifically responsible and directly involved in the development of manufacturing processes, equipment, tooling and alternatives, sequences, operations, utilizations for the production of castings.

What You'll Do

  • Ability to work individually on specific programs yet collaboratively with Launch Team, QC, Design, Tooling, and other support groups
  • Demonstrate technical knowledge of foundry processes and ability to apply concepts in a manufacturing environment
  • Support Launch Wall process via Manufacturing Validations, Build Plans, PPAP and related engineering procedures
  • Support testing and installations of equipment, tooling and technologies both on and off site
  • Lead, support and present the analysis of casting defects
  • Assist in process, tooling and equipment testing, troubleshooting and implementations
  • Develop process documentation, Process flow diagrams, PCP, PFMEA, TIS, and related technical documents as necessary for a program launch
  • Analyze first time quality data and optimize processes using DOE, Red X, and related statistical tools
  • Perform both Non and destructive testing procedures for casting investigation and analysis ( leak testing, x ray, CT, thermal, lab specimen prep, chemistry, density, mechanical, etc)
  • On site work, working on shop floor, hands on equipment, understanding of casting shop activity,( climbing, bending, lifting, in and around Hot aluminum)
