Leads the application of Industrial Engineering concepts, techniques, analysis and decision tools to promote and implement changes in manufacturing, engineering and service operations. Leads the development of models, data bases and spreadsheets to analyze data (e.g., statistics, operations research, engineering economics), and provides expert analysis and metrics for consultation to customers (e.g., management, departments, suppliers). Leads in the application of extensive industrial engineering techniques and concepts to product and process design teams throughout all phases of product lifecycle, resulting in a robust product design and work statement that meets program requirements. Leads the research, design, development, improvement, and implementation of processes to enhance schedule performance, lower cost, and improve quality, through the expert application of Lean and advanced Industrial Engineering concepts for large scale systems integration and asset utilization. Manages, defines, negotiates, and controls the scope, cost, and timing of projects, and direct the use of project management tools (e.g., work break-down structure, precedence network, resource allocation). Ensures project is completed within budget, and on schedule. Leads the use of engineering methods (e.g., mathematical models, simulation, statistics) to develop optimal process designs and efficient utilization of resources (e.g., facilities, personnel, materials, equipment) in the creation and validation of products. Leads the analysis and design of the value stream, including capability, capacity (e.g., make/buy, supplier selection, risk analysis, supplier performance), throughput, work flow and logistics (e.g., critical path, lead-time, transportation, factory layout).
[ + ] Build Positive Relationships
Consistently builds effective working relationships with other project leads, internal employees, and external customers. Probes for and provides information to clarify situations. Consistently seeks and expands on original ideas from other project leads, internal employees, and external customers, enhances others' ideas, and contributes own ideas about the issues at hand. Places higher priority on project and organization goals than on own goals. Guides others in gaining agreement from other project leads, managers, internal employees, and external customers to support ideas or take partnership-oriented action; uses sound rationale to explain value of actions. Establishes good interpersonal relationships by helping people feel valued, appreciated, and included in discussions.
[ + ] Communication
Consistently clarifies purpose and importance; stresses major points; follows a logical sequence. Consistently keeps the audience thoroughly engaged through use of techniques such as analogies, illustrations, humor, an appealing style, body language, and voice inflection. Consistently frames even complex messages in line with audience experience, background, and expectations; uses terms, examples, and analogies that are meaningful to the audience. Consistently seeks input from audience; checks understanding; presents message in different ways to enhance understanding. Uses syntax, pace, volume, diction, and mechanics appropriate to the media being used; attends to both direct and indirect messages from others; correctly interprets messages and responds appropriately. Advises fellow project leads and other internal employees in effective communication techniques.
[ + ] Initiating Action
Consistently takes immediate action when confronted with a problem or when made aware of a situation in own or other work area. Consistently implements new ideas or potential solutions without prompting; does not wait for others to take action or to request action. Consistently takes action that goes well beyond job requirements in order to achieve the objectives of the organization.
[ + ] Systems Thinking
Consistently evaluates job tasks and processes on how well they help meet team objective(s); identifies non-value-adding components and barriers. Formulates change strategies; frequently seeks input from other project leads and internal employees to evaluate options for change and encourage buy-in. Makes appropriate changes to job/role structures and processes by communicating effectively and focusing on new skill development. Uses extensive measurement systems to monitor the implementation.
[ + ] Analytical Skills
Skill and ability to: collect, organize, synthesize, and analyze data; summarize findings; develop conclusions and recommendations from appropriate data sources with clients, customers and/or suppliers.
[ + ] Capacity Management
Extensive knowledge of planning and scheduling techniques (e.g., capacity/capability planning, single piece flow, buffer management).
[ + ] Lean Manufacturing
Extensive and specialized knowledge of lean manufacturing principles (e.g., value stream analysis, single piece flow).
[ + ] Operations Processes
Extensive and specialized knowledge of the responsibilities and tasks performed by various Operations departments/disciplines (e.g., Fabrication, Assembly, Tooling, Quality, Industrial Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering). Extensive and specialized knowledge of the interactions between departments/disciplines and how their products/processes affect one another and impact non-operations processes (e.g., Engineering, Business, Logistics).
