Value Stream Leader – Principal Industrial Engineer


At Ball Aerospace’s Westminster Colorado location, we develop and manufacture state of the art RF & sensor technologies that are integrated onto tactical missile and aircraft platforms. If you’d like to join our rapidly growing operations team in a mission to help the warfighter, this could be an ideal role for you.


The Value Stream Leader will support activities within our Aerospace Manufacturing Center located in Westminster, CO. This is a challenging and dynamic role that requires a strong and proven operational leader who is well versed in Lean Manufacturing and Lean Product and Process Development principles and execution. The ideal candidate will develop a strong relationship with the internal customer, define value for both development and manufacturing value streams, identify the current condition and drive target conditions through the application of Lean thinking and methods. This role will initially require a heavy focus on tactics to understand the current condition of operations and drive the development of “Lean” processes. Over time it will evolve into a larger leadership / Lean coaching position focused more on the development of people.

 

What You’ll Do:


  • Develop and maintain strong customer relationships, establishing a deep understanding of their environment, and generating a clear understanding of the challenges they face.
  • Engage the value stream team members to clearly understand all value creating activities.

  • Support the Industrial Operations team with forecasting and planning manufacturing growth including floorspace, equipment capacity, tooling, and labor required to meet quantities and schedules.
  • Perform and/or mentor junior staff on a broad range of analysis including Value Stream Mapping, queueing analysis, production planning and control, SMED, process flow diagrams, FMEA, quality function deployment, etc.
  • Drive the evolution of our 6S housekeeping effort as well as the development of our mixed model manufacturing work cell.
  • Engage and report to senior operational and engineering leaders, team members, and stakeholders to gain alignment on implementation plans and success metrics.
  • Maintain an intense focus and continuous presence where the work is performed. Take daily Gemba walks, go and see to gather the facts, and develop a deep and thorough understanding of the process.
  • Influence others with a Lean coaching approach (respect for people, “go and see” behavior, put problems first, and continuously intensify collaboration).
  • Be accountable, drive accountability within the organization, and put problems first with a sense of urgency.
  • Maintain a strong focus on safety, training, and the development of people.
  • Maintain a regular and predictable work schedule.
  • Establish and maintain effective working relationships within the department, the Strategic Business Units, Strategic Support Units and the Company. Interact appropriately with others in order to maintain a positive and productive work environment.
  • Perform other duties as necessary.

What You’ll Need:

  • A proven Industrial Engineering skillset that demonstrates a strong aptitude for queueing analysis, value stream analysis, and project management.
  • Strong Lean Manufacturing knowledge and practical application experience.
  • A creative approach to problem solving and an appetite for experimentation.
  • A problem-solving endurance that persists in the wake of initial setbacks.
  • Experience aligning and influencing fellow employees without direct functional responsibilities.
  • Strong presentation skills to communicate with senior leadership.
  • An innate mentality that seeks dynamic gains over static optimizations.
  • A strong focus on the horizontal flow of value across several supporting organizations.
