  • Developing and leading systems and process control methodology to drive continuous improvement in the factory.
  • Be the contact point for Innovation (R&D) for capability assessment and product commercialization
  • Be the gatekeeper of hand-over of clear product and process specifications for transfer to quality and production
  • Liaise with Capex engineering and R&D to define production capabilities gaps and propose future technology enhancements and assist commissioning of new equipment’s
  • Be champion of change implementation in the plant

Engineering: Capability assessment & technology enhancements

  • Assesses capabilities and define gaps
  • Proposes Engineering Key CAPEX technology enhancement projects
  • Assists the installation, testing, Factory Acceptance Trial (FAT), accountable for operational qualification, support Site Acceptance Trial (SAT) of new equipment and machinery
