The role will be responsible to drive flexible pipe systems design optimization initiatives across the organization. Main areas of focus will be: design flow optimization (Digital Thread) to reduce engineering cycle time both during ITO and OTR, product standardization aimed to reduce cost and optimize supply chain lead times, value engineering. Responsibility to prepare an overall plan to meet the required objectives, the plan should include required resources and clear milestones.
The Product Structuring & Cost Out Leader will be accountable for the implementation of the Digital Thread strategy, Product Structuring & Product Cost Out initiatives. He/She will be responsible to define strategy goals together with FPS Product Leadership, Engineering Leaders, Manufacturing and Sourcing in alignment with the broader OFE Product Cost Out and Product Structuring plan.
Digital Thread strategy will leverage the existing PLM platform and should enable a flexible pipe system optimization in ITO to improve our cost competitiveness while creating a strong link with OTR thus reducing engineering lead time during project execution.
Product structuring should allow to optimize ancillaries design, enabling full should cost and detailed configuration into early ITO stage.
Product Cost Out should leverage Product Structuring standardization at component level but also leverage Digital Thread initiative to further optimize pipe system design in ITO. Additional ideas should also be generated to reduce the total pipe cost (new materials, alternate suppliers, should cost, etc..)
The Leader will demonstrate accountability for cross functional and broad business objectives. In this role he/she will integrate and develop processes that meet business needs across the organization, manage complex issues within functional area(s), be involved in short-medium-long-term planning, and contribute to the overall business strategy.
The PS & Cost Out Leader will mainly focus on existing technologies, configuration options and suppliers agreements, therefore this role will require an application focus to make systems configuration leaner, cheaper, faster and smarter to optimize the wing to wing product life cycle from ITO to installation.
