As a Senior Mechanical Engineer you know designing processes very well. With focus on functional design, you have a high level of knowledge on how to describe the functional demands and desires on assembly line machinery by using drawings and other TPD’s. You know manufacturing processes always follows on the functional descriptions in drawings and TPD’s rather than the other way around.

Next to the responsibility for your own day-to-day design work in projects and the reviews of designs of the assembly line project you are working on, you also bear responsibility of monitoring and executing review processes of the work of other design engineers. You will be doing this together with the Team Leader Design.

Achieving high level of quality in the product of Production Engineering, the TPD’s to create high-end assembly lines in automotive environment, is your first and foremost drive.

A helicopter view on the direction the developments have to go is no problem for you, just as you are very good at keeping an eye on details in how to make high quality drawings. For you, discussions are always on a professional level, to build up quality and to motivate colleagues.
