This position is located at the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility (MAF) in New Orleans, Louisiana. 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).
[ + ] Adaptability
Fully understands changes in own and fellow senior employees' work and situations; is frequently called upon to explain the logic or basis for change to other employees; is generally seen as an expert on information about changes affecting own and fellow senior employees' jobs; occasionally mentors fellow employees around the change. Treats changes and new situations as opportunities for learning or growth; focuses on the beneficial aspects of change; speaks positively about the change to fellow senior employees and external customers. Quickly modifies behavior to deal effectively with changes in the work environment; readily tries new approaches appropriate for new or changed situations; does not persist with ineffective behaviors.
[ + ] 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.
[ + ] Assembly Process
Extensive and specialized knowledge of assembly and production processes, manufacturing capabilities (e.g., composites, structures), and data needed for defining delivery configurations (e.g., design definition, program directives, engineering drawings, change memos, wiring diagrams and schematics, functional tests, supplier data). Ability to differentiate production (manufacturing) processes and requirements from in-service procedures and requirements.
[ + ] Lean Manufacturing
Extensive and specialized knowledge of lean manufacturing principles (e.g., value stream analysis, single piece flow).
[ + ] Operations Improvement
Apply extensive knowledge of Industrial Engineering process improvement strategies and Lean techniques (e.g., methods analysis, work combination charts, ergonomics, TOC, 3P, Six Sigma, AIW, LMA, visual controls, safety) to analyze and improve operations.
[ + ] 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).
[ + ] Proj Sched & Resource Mgmt
Extensive, specialized ability to create comprehensive multi-tiered project schedules for significant Business Unit projects. Extensive, specialized ability to identify time frames for key project milestones, ensure alignment of sub tier activities for overall project visibility, tracking and completion, direct and manage more complex project schedules requiring interfacing with multi regional or international activities, independently identify project resource requirements, and integrate and direct multi project elements into a single collective overall project plan. Extensive, specialized ability to collaborate with others on the very complex projects assigned.
[ + ] Project Leadership
Extensive and specialized ability to direct, delegate, and ensure performance of assigned responsibilities and tasks as a project team leader in support of the overall large scale and complex projects. Extensive and specialized ability to identify and resolve project related issues and provide solutions and/or recommendations to ensure the successful completion of the project.
