• Good knowledge of plastic rules (Shrinkage analysis, Demoulding…), CAD Engineer, Mould engineer, Plastic Parts design
• Basic mechanicals rules, able to define isostatism system and to build stack up folder, able to build and check product under CAD software system ; able to lead cad 3D and 2D activities ;
• Good command of English.

• Ensures product design and architecture to meet the customer quality requirements (including weight, recycling, specifications), PO manufacturing requirements (design for manufacturing) as well as all costs and timing expectations
• Manages functionally the CAD resources to fulfil the design
• Ensures PO Design Standard are implemented (PODS & Technical Solutions)
• CTQ (Critical to Quality) convergence
• Isostatism file + stack up analysis folder
• Style surfaces analysis
• Design review actions plan
• Product/Part 3D + 2D data

• Works according to HSE requirements
• Gets from customer all technical elements necessary for the design (gap and flushness requirements, surrounding parts, interfaces…)
• Looks for solutions and suggests technical proposals to EPM for project decision, respecting existing documents in PO network (design standards/PODS, lessons learnt, benchmark reports…)
• Realizes and pilots the design of parts and products: analyses the feasibility (styling surface, parting
• lines, aspect, injection, demoulding, painting, assembly, packaging, perceived quality, recycling …) with regards to functional specifications from customer
• Manages the daily technical flow of information with CAD office and the Tier 2 suppliers according to the PO standard
• Checks and validates the quality of the CAD files received from customer, suppliers and design offices
• Ensures the regular update of the 3D data, 2D drawing and parts’ attributes within the PO CAD file database (TDM).
• Checks and suggests the reference systems of the parts, semi-finished products and products and updates it during the project
• Builds the geometry file with stack-ups and tolerances, ensures the validation by the Geometry Engineer. Updates this folder during the project life
• Liaises with the toolmaker together with the Injection & Tooling Engineer to optimize the design of parts (according to tool feasibility).
• Before the tool kick-off, defines and formalizes with EPM and the Injection & Tool Engineer the tuning zone areas to be taken into account for the tools realization
• Follows the realization of 2D/3D drawings of the internal parts and assembly regarding to the project requirements. Validates technically these drawings before submission to the project for validation before provided to customer
• For POE parts designed by the Tier 2 suppliers:
• Provides to the supplier all 3D data needed, gap & flushness requirements and functional specifications
• Analyses the planning of the design of the supplier and checks that it is compatible with his own activities
• Participates to the validation of the datum scheme, the tolerance stack-ups and measuring points
• Checks and validates the 3D design and give feed-back to the supplier and to the EPM
• Validates the 2D/3D drawings of the supplier
• For POE parts designed by POAE:
• Provides the 3D data, functional specifications and gap & flushness to the supplier to validate process feasibility
• Updates the 3D data if needed
• Provides the 2D/3D drawings to the supplier
• Proposes and leads the Design Reviews on his project
• Executes the actions decided during the design reviews and updates regularly the action plan
• Takes into account the perimeter changes after written validation from the EPM
• Manages the CAD file exchanges with the customer respecting internal standards and customer specifications
• Participates to the study and means validation of the checking fixture
• Could use checking fixture for product fine tuning

During the tuning phase:
• Validates the 2D/3D drawings of the supplier
• Can participate to tool trials
• Can manage the manufacturing of samples for the customer and the process validation
• Can participate to the cubing events at the customer
• Analyses and suggests modifications on the parts and products to meet the requirements (by taking also into account the feedback from other team members)
• Updates or pilot the updates of the CAD data according to modifications validated by the project
• Reports to the EPM the status of the Design Reviews and related actions, the CAD data timing plan and action plan
• Capitalizes and formalizes the lessons learned of the design during all the project life
