Proven problem solver with the ability to work with mechanical engineering to improve cell and pack development quality. These quality issues typically manifest as within-supplier quality issues or supplier-to-supplier quality issues. Typical problem solving tools will involve classical quality methods such as Pareto or Fishbone diagram. More complicated problems will require leading a cross-functional team in DMAIC Six Sigma methods. Experience required in working with internal cross-functional engineering teams, external suppliers, both domestic and international, to achieve successful quality improvement. Direct experience with failure analysis to root cause preferred. •Work with the Battery Mechanical Engineering Design team to develop metrology requirements. •Brainstorms metrology design concepts and executes concepts in all phases of a development cycle •Generates innovative designs with cross-functional teams, including detailed written specifications, drawings and tolerance analyses •Defines and Executes design validation and characterization from prototype bring-up to product testing •Develops metrology designs and processes with external vendors, acting as product development technical liaison among vendors •Communicates cross-functionally on design directions and requirements •Manages and tracks multiple priorities within schedule requirements and drives multiple vendors towards common project goals •Conducts design reviews and drives file release process •Drives failure analyses and design of experiments (DOEs) to reach design solutions and corrective actions • Communicates status effectively throughout the management structure
