The manufacturing engineer is responsible for unit operating performance (production, raw material usage, energy usage, quality, daily performance tracking, troubleshooting, and basic unit optimization). Drive real time unit performance in these areas and with respect to yields, usages, reliability, and quality. Maintain accurate accounting of all unit production losses and drive actions to correct.
Monitor unit performance by tracking key process indicators (KPI’s) and key operating parameters (KOP’s).
Maintenance of performance tracking tools to include setpoint or target changes.
Basic troubleshooting and optimization of the process to address gaps identified through daily performance monitoring.
Accounting and categorization of daily production losses.
Drive targeted actions in response to performance gaps in KPI’s as well as production losses.
Assist in tracking of unit regulatory compliance.
Facilitation of MOCs originating from unit needs.
Lead or assist in delivering technical training to operators.
Assist with production planning, tracking, and closing.
Maintain unit process safety information (PSI).
Interface with production engineering, process engineering, and other site business teams.
