The main function of a manufacturing engineer is to apply engineering theory and principles to problems of industrial layout or manufacturing production. A typical manufacturing engineer has the ability to make engineering drawings, and read and interpret blueprints.
• Study time, motion, methods, and speed involved in maintenance, production, and other operations to establish standard production rate and improve efficiency.
• Review worker logs, product processing sheets, and specification sheets, to verify that records adhere to quality assurance specifications.
• Review and approve work assignments in accordance with worker performance, machine capacity, production schedules, and anticipated delays.
• Review charts, graphs, and diagrams to illustrate workflow, routing, floor layouts, material handling, and machine utilization.
• Evaluate data and reports to validate or indicate deviations from existing standards.
• Recommend modifications to existing quality or production standards to achieve optimum quality within limits of equipment capability.
• Recommend revision to methods of operation, material handling, equipment layout, or other changes to increase production or improve standards.
• Creativity, verbal and written communication skills, analytical and problem solving ability.
• Team player and detail oriented.
• Displays attributes of a critical thinker and leverages innovative ideas.
• Strong leadership and mentoring skills necessary to provide support and constructive performance feedback.
• Advanced ability to make sketches, engineering drawings and common computations.
• Advanced ability to read and interpret blueprints, technical drawing, schematics and computer-generated reports.
• Previous experience with computer applications and software related to engineering field, such as Computer Aided Design (CAD).
• Bachelor's degree in engineering required.
• 8-10 years experience required.
