Key Responsibilities and Accountabilities


To ensure that the Cell has up to date travellers, drawings and parts lists.

To identify tooling and process changes which may be necessary to enable the Cell to achieve its cost, delivery and quality targets.

To produce products within the Cell, according to the requirements of the Company, using the Master Operational Plan (MOP) or project schedule, and to ensure these products meet the required quality level and are produced within the time allowance.

The Engineer’s role in this is to provide timely inputs to the Cell, drawings, travellers, tooling, processes, engineering support, parts & material, by co-ordinating activities with Design & Purchasing functions within the business, and by working closely with the Cell Leader, Supervisors and Managers.


To communicate with Design and Procurement resources to ensure they meet the needs of the Cell, and to effectively communicate with the Cell Leader, Supervisor or Manager to ensure the MOP requirements are achieved or surpassed.
