- Manage the internal technical interfaces and implement the technical solutions agreed upon with the Heads of the involved Units.
- Coordinates the engineering activities related to the R&D project to achieve the technical project objectives in the most effective and efficient manner.
- Define the engineering plans and operating budgets, as well as all subsequent amendments and variations submitted to the PMO, establishing the applicable efficiency standards with the Head of the different Units.
- Supply and/or control the inputs for the design phase of R&D project.
- Contribute to the purchasing technical documentation for R&D equipment supply.
- Technical evaluation and alignment of manufacturer bids for the supply of equipment.
- Perform overall quality control of the work (budget, schedule, plans, personnel’s performance) and report regularly on project status.
- Verify the technical correctness of the engineering documents produced when the task is delegated by the Line Managers.
- Produce and test prototype/facility implementations of systems to help answer research questions
- Act as the technical point of contact for the R&D program stakeholders.
- Applying the company procedure of Quality, Environmental, Health and Safety System and Organizational Model.
- Ensure that intellectual property rules are followed, and act accordingly.
- Participates in and fosters a work environment that is based upon openness, trust, communication, teamwork, empowerment, innovation, and satisfaction.
