The purpose of this position is to work within the Maintenance Engineering group to improve equipment reliability by increasing mean time between failures and to find ways to reduce the mean time to repair equipment. This position will work to set up standards for the maintenance process that will be needed, such as, standardized maintenance procedures. The Maintenance Engineer will also be responsible for setting strategies for the replacement of equipment taking into account the life span of equipment and how we are using the equipment. This will also involve the capital investment and project management. The position will work with the I-Maint System or other derived spreadsheets to analyze equipment failures and to look for trends in equipment failure. This positon will be involved in equipment analysis to determine the best method of maintaining the equipment given the equipment use and developing either time based maintenance procedures, predictive maintenance procedures, such as, condition based monitoring and/or break down strategies and the follow-up to ensure that the methods are giving the desired result. This position will be required to work cross functionally with maintenance, production and other technical groups to reduce equipment failure frequency. This position will work within the VPS WCM methodology.
