The position enables you to work on exciting programs developing production schedules to meet manufacturing requirements. Our team uses system tools and works closely with various functional teams to communicate and ensure production capabilities are maintained. We drive manufacturing and support teams to meet goals and work to mitigate and recover any missed objectives. As part of the Production Control organization, our work is essential to the overall success of the programs and customers serviced.

Responsibilities:

  • Maintain accurate and current schedules for focus programs detailing the start and complete dates for work center activities

Many times we are asked to work with undefined variables and build a solid path forward. Some comfort with ambiguity will serve you well!
