Establish validation plans (DVP&R’s) for tool, process or design changes for production programs (after SOP). Maintain validation records, DFMEA, part and tool CAD data/drawings and other engineering documents related to changes. Coordinate sample builds and distribution; submit test requests, track testing and compile results into final report. Initiate ECR’s and track throughout change management process (AS7); assure proper execution of steps and approvals. Assure thorough record keeping in PDM system (deviations, test results, ECR’s/ECO’s, etc.) Product Design Engineering responsibilites from SOP through all service obligations. Create new production variants per customer requests for model year updates. Support VEVA workshops and implement VEVA changes as assigned. Participate in workshops for new development projects to share lessons learned and provide manufacturing feasibility feedback.
