SAC ROC-VIE-Continuous Improvement

Job field : Continuous improvement Location : Strafford County , New Hampshire , United States Contract type : VIE Contract duration : Full-time Required degree : Master Degree Required experience : First experience Professional status : Student Spoken language(s) : English Fluent

Job Description

The CI VIE will support the organization's top-level goal of reducing cost and increasing competitiveness by providing accurate and precise measurements and analyses of the product value streams, and using such measurements to maintain product Value Stream Maps (VSM), which are fundamental to the structuring of the whole manufacturing operation. The VIE will also support the development of local industrial standards that constitute essential building blocks in the strategic plan. Additionally, the VIE will support simulations essential for evaluation of improvement and investment plans. Simulation support may entail coding of VSM information into Excel sheets and working with suppliers to build digital libraries using other software tools.

Complementary Description


• Conduct product time studies, supporting a transformation of the production management system by ensuring that each operation's labor standards are defined so that they correspond with the real time required for operators to perform the operation, and to perform any other tasks, notably part transport, that are required for complete processing of each part.
o These standards must be reliable to be used to compute staffing levels in each functional area of the factory.
o To assure reliability of the standard and proper capture of variability, multiple studies per operation are to be performed, along with statistical analysis of variation and subsequent presentation of results.
• For support of standards development, assemble extant information from various existing sources and consult with local experts for guidance and clarification as needed. The anticipated outcome is one or more “catalogs” to serve as adjuncts to the governing factory standards: catalogs such as material handling systems, workstations, common tools, and similar topics.
• Manipulate VSM data and other data models in support of the factory scanning and simulation initiative.

Job Requirements


• VIE will develop their understanding of industrial processes and Lean principles and use basic statistical analyses to characterize their measurements and other data, and develop formal presentations of their work
• Project management skills, including development of project scope, timeline, identification of needed resources, and interim and final goals
• Team work and collaboration – this position is required to interact with employees at all levels within Safran Aerospace Composites
• Development of technical writing skills and techniques
• Knowledge of industrial simulation techniques along with specific associated software tools

REQUIRED COMPETENCIES – Education/Knowledge/Skills

• Industrial or mechanical engineering education, some proficiency in CAD tools and MS office suite.
• Interest in continual improvement and optimization of processes.
• Some exposure to Lean principles such as 5S would be an asset, as would any previous participation in structured problem solving such as 8D or Six Sigma.


• Complies with all established policies and procedures
• Required to comply with all OSHA and EPA regulations related to these operations
