On behalf of our client, a prestigious automotive client, we are looking for a Virtual Discrete Event Lead Simulation Engineer to work in the Midlands. You'll spearhead the development and delivery of Discrete Event Simulation (DES) models, ensuring program objectives are met efficiently. We require expertise in DES toolsets, production process flow simulation, and project management. If you're a skilled communicator, thrive in fast-paced environments, and have automotive production experience, apply now to drive innovation!


Position Description:
Responsible for the development and delivery of the Discrete Event Simulation model and documentation, modelling the process flow from concept thru to the delivery phase to JOB1 + 90 days. The model will be developed to include, but not limited to:
  • Lead 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.
  • Lead the system optimisation, cost avoidance, best practises capturing and sharing this with relevant stakeholders o 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 and lead projects and teams feedback of results as required through design / project reviews / DES Dashboards
  • Lead optimisation of the DES model against different model derivative mixes and operational parameters.
  • Lead the bottleneck analysis of the system and develop strategies to remove
  • Lead volume throughput increase studies and system what if's
