NPI Development Engineer
I have an exciting opportunity for an NPI Development Engineer to join a global leader in the design and manufacture of electronic instruments within medical devices, telecommunications, optical communications, defence and scientific sectors.
Currently, the company is a combination of low volume development orders combined with an increasing number of new products entering into running manufacture following qualification in customer’s products. This Scottish business is continuing to grow and is ramping up production with a move to a new facility in the coming year.
The role sits within the Product Development Team and will involve contribution at all product development stages with a particular focus on NPI into volume production. The role is based in Dunfermline and will report directly to the Engineering Manager; this is a key function within the business and offers an exciting challenge for an ambitious individual. The role will work closely with other engineers and the operations team to ensure products introduced to production meet the requirements in terms of production readiness, cost targets and performance.
Key areas of responsibility will include:
Transitioning prototype products into volume production, with a focus on:
Defining product specification and manufacturing process flow.
Design-for-manufacture to reduce product cost and improve manufacturability.
Developing inspection plans for product validation.
Defining process capability requirements and metrology requirements for the products.
Driving yield improvement through data analysis and reporting to other engineers.
Promoting production readiness requirements into earlier product development phases.
This is a fast-paced, dynamic environment within a growing Scottish business offering an opportunity to join them at a crucial stage in their development.
