BAE Systems Production Support Engineer - Fabrication in York, Pennsylvania
Production Support Engineering (PSE) plays an integral role in problem identification and resolution for manufacturing. As problems are identified in the fabrication process, PSE works with Floor support engineers to assess the issue and troubleshoot a near term solution. PSE will then conduct root cause analysis and work to resolve systemic manufacturing problems in conjunction with appropriate stakeholders. PSE will create and track requests for variance (RFV) from initial request through vehicle delivery. Additionally, PSE will drive preventative action measures to ensure continuous improvement to the fabrication process.
Analyze and interpret design specifications, drawings, documentation, models, and/or test results to ensure products conform to the technical data package.
Troubleshoot and isolate system level problems discovered during production to determine the root cause, including design defects and production/supplier defects, and recommend changes/enhancements in designs, tolerances, or processing methods.
Develop quad charts documenting result of the manufacturing related root cause analysis and the recommended actions, and present quad charts to NWT for decision and final approval of action.
Track open items with attention to detail and drive closure to issues that result from manufacturing.
Maintain the variance control process for production related variations from the technical data package (TDP). This includes obtaining Internal and Customer approval for subject Variances.
