Because of the need for consistent, in-person collaboration and/or the requirement to perform all work onsite due to the nature of this particular role, it will be performed full-time on site. This means work will be conducted on location at a BAE Systems facility 100% of the time.
The Electronic Warfare Integrated Manufacturing Center (EW-IMC) New Product Introduction (NPI) Pilot Line is responsible for the first unit builds of new hardware designs. This includes the development and maturation of the associated build processes, programming, and tooling in preparation for rate production. This requires close collaboration with the design community and requires being able to adapt to a rapidly changing environment. The NPI Pilot Line plays a critical, exciting, and unique role that helps ensure that future production runs are successful.
Process Engineering is a fast-paced, versatile, diverse, and critical role. Process Engineers are an essential catalyst in facilitating/executing to meet customer needs and providing crucial feedback from the production floor. Collaborative and dynamic in nature, this role must be adaptive, agile, and display ownership over their responsibilities. Approaching tasks with sense of urgency, being open to change, maintaining a positive attitude, and being a self-starter, are important attributes to being successful within the NPI team. This role is predominately focused on the module/box and upper level assemblies. Due to the agile nature of NPI group, there may be times when cross training into the circuit card assembly (CCA) area is required.
