Design and synchronize the networks and processes that move raw materials and supplies into production facilities, transform them into finished goods, and distribute products to customer markets. Specific responsibilities may vary depending upon the engineering role within the supply chain. Roles can include maintaining quality standards and systems, creating relevant specifications to minimize variability and subjectivity to align with operational and supplier capability requirements. Defines material inspection metrology and methodology. Conducts studies relative to cost control, process control, and production yield and implements plans and programs to optimize supply chain. Works with suppliers to define requirements and holds suppliers accountable for their manufacturing process flow to meet quality, reliability, cost, yield and manufacturability requirements. Drives continuous process and quality improvements, eg:1. New Product Introduction NPI/New Technology Introduction NTIBe part of the ATM early engagement team EIT in Assembly Test Development in US for new technology development learning and transfer. Participate in Map Day/Alignment meeting for materials technology readiness and bill of materials BOM for technology transfer, startup and ramp. Lead for substrate, polymer, solder, thermal interface materials PSMT qualification execution and data analysis in Assembly and Test Manufacturing ATM. Drive supplier yield transparency YTA analysis, drive failure analysis/root cause/corrective action plans, prepare supplier/internal NPI status report. Chair substrate/PSMT joint development team JDT, define substrate/materials loading qualification strategy including low cost geo LCG supplier qualification strategy and script for engineering/qual samplesES/QS with NPI team. Be point of contact for ATM on supplier procurement spec P-spec review on all new materials. 2. Excursion Management and Materials Change Control Chair and lead materials related excursion including VF Issue & L1 MRB. Manage the containment strategy and plan for supply line, root cause RC team and risk assessment team. Drive comprehensive commonality analysis, DOE plan, management summary, interplant or shipment enabling to prevent any supply line impact or backlog impact and ensure no escapee for high risk material. Lead for post mortem process if applicable and own issue documentation in SPEED. Key player in materials change control, ensuring associated risk with factory and interaction issues between modules and materials and manufacturability is well comprehended. Lead the data collection strategy including forecast and request for build capacity in game plan, coordinate data collection and analysis. 3. Factory Engineering, Operation and Buyer Support Primary point of contact for ATM, owns materials health and readiness, attends daily Ops need basis, active player/driver for yield and quality management YQM in substrate/PSMT yield analysis and value engineering improvement projects. Work closely with OCM to ensure process health and supplier readiness for NPI/ramp. Participate in WG/TC/MRC.Own line audit in factory and store on materials related aspects including but not limited to storage condition, handling methods, shelf life extension etc.
