Job Description:

Logistics Engineer: Manufacturing Material Flow Process Improvement Direct hire SIA Logistics Engineer overviewYou will be involved with four pillars in our supply chain - with focus on the second and third, below. These four pillars, among others, represent products moving from a supplier's door to our production line at the right time (in 12 min blocks) and in the right quantity. Here is the material flow in chronological order starting from our supplier's door. 1. Materials Procurement: this group liaises with SIA's indirect and direct procurement groups to assure that products bought months or years in advance are ready for dock loading at a supplier's door at the right time and quantity.2. Material Logistics: this group manages this pillar and the next and coincides with your focus. SIA uses 3rd party freight companies to schedule routes from the supplier dock to our yard. SIA's yard has 1 trailers at any time. This group has some oversight of the 3rd parties' routing, timing and delivery systems and helps to improve our real-time visibility of the moving inventory that is tied to 3rd party vendors' systems. 3. Materials Logistics (continued): Product is now in SIA's yard. This group now coordinates with inventory and logistics systems located inside of our plant that works on a rolling 12 min product delivery schedule. This schedule corresponds to a completed car coming off the end of the line every -30 seconds during production hours. In this pillar, the logistics system coordinates the timing and location of a trailer connecting to an SIA dock. The trailer must be at the right dock at the right time with the right material and right quantity - with the right number of employees there to receive it. 4. Logistics Warehouse Delivery: This group has its own system that coordinates the final step of checking in material from a dock (from within the plant) and delivering products to the right production line at the right--- you see the point. Job Challenges Each pillar with which you will interact has its own failure points. With time and training, you will get to know the common failure points of each. E.g. a piece of paper floating to a desk of a person that is on vacation - making the delivered item show as not received although the part might be on a car already. To compound the challenge, each pillar has its own IS/IT logistics system. Further, they do not communicate with each other well and they are viewed on different screens. This makes material flow visibility in real time a large area of opportunity for the organization. The Job's GoalWe are not looking for an IT/IS systems guru to get everything on one screen with perfect real-time updating (but if you can do that, let me know). Your job, rather, will be to identify failure points within visibility, timing, and/or quantity, make plans to prevent those failure points within a systemic context, and report your findings to our Information Systems group in Logistics. These action will largely be numbers and data driven. You will not be heavily pulled into IS projects, rather will be their resource for data points and ideas on what needs fixed. The IS group will work on how to fix it. It will not be overnight; you will have plenty of work and novel challenges to climb for years to come. ==========================================Requirements:

  • Completed 4-year Engineering degree
  • Manufacturing (specific) Logistics / Supply chain experience, 1+ year
    Desired Experience:
    • Automotive experience, Tier or OEM
    • Project management related to process improvement, Kaizen / root cause analysis
    • Analytic Presentation background: using ERP modules, excel, or in-house programs to run numbers, variances, create visual data, and present to management and executives ========================================== Join a team where our associates are the most important part of our company. We take an active interest in our associates' wellbeing and great pride in offering one of the best benefits packages in the community. We offer premium free medical, dental, and vision insurance. Yes, you read that correctly - premium free! Our 401(k) retirement plan includes a generous employer match, in addition to an annual discretionary contribution paid by SIA. We'll make life easier with our on-site health and wellness center, an on-site recreation center (with free personal trainers), and our on-site daycare for the little ones. We know how important time away from work is as well, which is why our time off program includes a two week summer shut down in addition to the week between Christmas and New Years off, allowing you to get the R&R you deserve when you need it most. Last, but not least, we are proud to offer tuition reimbursement and professional development programs to our associates, including access to on-site programs through Purdue Polytechnic College, Ivy Tech, and Vincennes University.
