  • Work with machine suppliers partners to specify the equipment for Pilot line and Giga factory to make sure that the required equipment capabilities are correctly defined
  • Work with machine suppliers during equipment design to implement required capabilities and process requirements and to verify and confirm the requirements during FAT and SAT procedure
  • Specify the production environment and plant utilities in collaboration with product development and process engineering for high quality battery cell production
  • Provide process documentation and operating work instructions for the newly developed processes and assembly concepts
  • Build-up the cell formation process engineering team towards operating the pilot line operations and Giga factories
  • Prototype new battery cell chemistries and formats in coordination with equipment suppliers, internal and external customers.

Tasks and responsibilities during pilot factory and Giga factory operations:

  • Define and monitor operating conditions, review productivity and confirm the production process in every stage of the production process in cell formation
  • Conduct process sensitivity studies, process capability evaluations on key parameters, determination of throughput capability, and ensuring proper documentation of work instructions
  • Confirm process standards based on the optimum equipment operating conditions through process capability analysis and statistical process analysis (SPC management standard, Cpk review, etc.)
  • Perform disciplined process engineering studies, process verification, identify CTQ’s, understand and reduce variations and perform DOEs to define optimum process settings
  • Evaluate process data to determine failure modes and identify opportunities to improve; contribute to improved design and operating specifications supporting product, material, process and equipment development initiatives
  • Drive continuous improvement initiatives, conduct trouble shooting and implement corrective actions
  • Work closely with both product development and process engineering to continuously improve current processes, develop new processes and define quality metrics and product / process validation requirements
  • Keep equipment operational by coordinating maintenance and repair services based manufacturer's instructions and established procedures
