What to Expect

The New Product Introduction Technical Project Manager is responsible for analyzing the effect of production changes through the use of validation trials within manufacturing operations. The Technical Project Manager is responsible for supporting the development of new processes and carrying out each trial exactly to the established product specification. This includes managing the qualification and validation of product and parts for a program from early prototype builds to launch of the production line and volume ramp of a new product.

The primary role of the Technical Project Manager will be to test and validate systems and parts involved in product development and manufacturing in order to ensure products are of the highest quality. To support this, the Technical Project Manager will also establish validation standards, develop testing protocols, prepare equipment, document test results, and maintain records. Additionally, the Technical Project Manager will identify, report, and adjust equipment or processes that require improvement.

The Technical Project Manager will collaborate with design, manufacturing engineering, quality, configuration management, production, safety, and service departments.
