Join a renowned British automotive manufacturer's Solihull-based Manufacturing Engineering team as a Discrete Event Simulation Programme Engineer. You'll be pivotal in developing and optimising Discrete Event Simulation (DES) models to meet design objectives and operational needs. Collaborate closely with design teams, conduct bottleneck analysis, and optimise systems. If you have experience with simulation tools like 'Witness' or 'Plant Simulation', a background in production process flow simulation, and strong communication skills, we want to hear from you. This role offers the opportunity to work on cutting-edge automotive engineering projects in a dynamic team environment. Apply now!

Position Description:
  • Support the DES model generation from concept modelling to fully detailed mimic of the programme / system that meet the design scope, operating principals, performance metrics, safety, quality, delivery, cost, people and environment objectives are met.
  • Support the system optimisation, cost avoidance, best practises capturing and sharing this with relevant stakeholders Able to work effectively with design teams to develop and optimise solutions considering multi-attributes within defined deadlines and time constraints.
  • Guide the process using a product knowledge and awareness of potential design constraints to ensure due consideration is given in developing solutions
  • Coordinate projects and teams feedback of results as required through design / project reviews / DES Dashboards
  • Support optimisation of the DES model against different model derivative mixes and operational parameters.
  • Support the bottleneck analysis of the system and develop strategies to remove
  • Support volume throughput increase studies and system what if's
  • Guide the process to adhere to the vehicle derivative sequencing and build to sequence rules
  • Support the continual development of tools and techniques which enhance capability, improve quality and robustness of DES models
  • Undertake any other work as directed by their line manager in connection with their job as may be requested
Skills Required:
  • Demonstrable Working knowledge and experience of 'Witness' or 'Plant Simulation' Discrete Event Simulation toolsets
  • Demonstrable previous experience of bottleneck analysis using Discrete Event Simulation.
  • A good communicator who can communicate complex ideas
Experience Required:
  • Working knowledge and experience of Discrete Event Simulation toolset
  • Previous experience and background in production process flow simulation, problem solving on complex technical systems.
  • Experience in production sites
  • Relevant degree or equivalent experience preferred
  • A good communicator who can communicate complex ideas
  • A effective team player, actively leads, develops and supports team members
  • High levels of personal resilience, integrity and honesty as well as large amounts of humility for the team.
