Raytheon Technologies Sr Industrial Systems Engineer I in McKinney, Texas
The Industrial Systems Engineer drives business and process improvements across multiple manufacturing and transactional processes by designing, improving, and implementing integrated systems of people, materials, and equipment. The individual draws upon the specialized knowledge and skill in the mathematical, physical, and social sciences, together with the principles and methods of engineering analysis and design to specify, predict, and evaluate the results to be obtained from such systems.
The Industrial Engineer leads initiatives which incorporate best practices in areas such as six sigma, lean manufacturing, and theory of constraints to eliminate process variation and production waste, reduce lead-times, improve process flow, evaluate available capacity, and create gains in efficiencies, with the ability to cost translate results into tangible benefits related to KPI’s.
Typical duties and responsibilities include but not limited to the following:
Reviews existing operations, documenting product and information flow in current operations using tools including value stream maps and process flow diagrams; develops recommendations for process improvements (including automation); and leads the implementation of the recommendations.
Leads factory layout initiatives for optimal process flow and material levels, including kanban/ replenishment levels, and material presentation.
Leads Lean events and mentors cross-functional teams on use of Lean principles & tools.
Identifies needs for manufacturing simulation models; leads data collection efforts to support model creation. Creates alternate scenarios based on model modifications.
Uses system reports to investigate work measurement variances; performs cost/benefit analysis and trade-off studies for methods and productivity improvements.
Builds capacity models (equipment and manpower), including gathering of critical data; makes recommendations based on the model outputs.
Applies statistical methods and perform mathematical calculations to determine manufacturing processes, staff requirements, and production standards.
Ensures Human Factors Engineering disciplines are utilized in production setup, configuration and in new product designs.
Drives improved manufacturability and testability of products by analyzing historical performance and makes recommendations to Design the teams.
Participates in new proposals; coordinates data collection based on existing standards and historical data.
