For new products perform well-prepared introduction in the pilot-factory by reviewing the design, participate in FMEA’s and validate the production process during the pilot phase. Focus on preventing issues and achieving the right quality. Optimize the production process and perform Issue tracking/solving to be able to transfer the product into the volume organization. Gathers structural issues and brings his knowledge to (new) product development projects, in order to foresee production issues in the design phase and become more cost effective.


  • Will execute the test-sequence on every first pilot-system
  • Analyses the production process within the pilot factory, points out structural problems and bottlenecks, works out suggestions for improvements and initiates their implementation, often in close cooperation with Development, Operations, System Install and Supply chain Engineering
  • Contributes to the rapid solution of complex faults and takes the necessary initiatives and practical decisions
  • Coordinates material quality related improvements for new parts
  • Defines the execution plan for refurbishment systems based on the audit
