About the job

Job responsibilities
The parts life cycle management department prides itself on its tight collaboration with other departments and teams across the company, and for securing material availability without fail. Specific responsibilities for this role include:

  • Creating a project plan and maintaining it
  • Incorporating logistics requirements into designs
  • Ordering materials in order to ensure availability
  • Conducting logistics risk analyses
  • Securing and allocating financial resources for packaging and customer tooling
  • Proactively managing materials availability by making sure the bill of material (raw materials list) and technical product drawings required for a particular part are available on schedule
  • Creating transparent parts supply and demand schedules
  • Creating decision sheets for late materials
  • Determining the consequences that proposed plan changes have on the supply chain
  • Creating, aligning, and monitoring implementation plans for engineering changes, while safeguarding the impact on material timing, cost and quality
  • Contributing to the further development of the product life cycle management department

Working environment
A total of 55 people currently work in the product life cycle management department, divided over four teams. You’ll be a part of one of the two teams of 8–12 project coordinators, each headed by a team lead, who will guide your personal development and oversee the development of processes within their team. Your team lead reports to a group leader, who in turn reports to the department director. The department’s other two teams include one team of operationally-focused product life cycle management project leaders, and one team of strategically-focused supply chain management project leaders.

Being ‘in the middle’ between R&D teams and supply chain management means you’ll spend a significant amount of time in meetings with various stakeholders. You can expect to be a part of the following types of meetings:

  • Development and engineering (R&D) project meetings
  • Calls with suppliers to align on materials availability and planning
  • ‘Escalation’ meetings as part of a ‘tiger team’ managing urgent materials issues
  • Alignment meetings with system integration teams and production planning teams to discuss challenges in building prototypes and pilots
  • Alignment meetings to manage engineering changes related to introducing new materials in our supply chain, factories and customer locations
  • Stakeholders
