Job Description

We are looking for a technology specialist for Mechanics and Metal Parts (materials and manufacturing technologies like cutting, bending, welding, deep-drawing, stamping, riveting, surfaces etc. as well as casting and machined parts) incl. the relevant assembly processes.
An additional focus is on the component business like forged parts, wheel sets, dampers, rubber metal parts, air spring and pantographs.
This CVE expert will be responsible for the cost and value evaluation of purchased parts as well as for self-developed components to generate quantitative target costs while adhering to quality and supply chain requirements.

What are my responsibilities?

·         Evaluate and calculate best cost and value position for Mechanics and Metal Parts through application of Cost and Value Engineering levers and methods.

·         Ensure transparency in production processes, related costs and improvement potentials through application of appropriate tools for Should-costing/bottom-up Cost Analysis and Optimization (CAO) and Design to Cost (DtC).

·         Compile feasible costs per component as basis for bottom-up cost target indication (for negotiations as well as in early phases of product development and engineering processes).

·         Collaborate closely with cross-functions like R&D / Engineering and Procurement in our Siemens Mobility locations world-wide.

·         Calculate cost baselining and regular cost updates for components acc. to maturity of design. Evaluate cost impact of alternative technical options (materials, manufacture methods) during the product development process and in re-designs. Support R&D / Engineering concerning the most cost effective solution based on standardized designs and/ or production methods.

·         Propose proactively DtC-/ improvement measures to R&D / Engineering along with quantified financial impact expectation.

·         Identify, quantify and drive supply chain productivity improvement measures, contribute transparency to negotiations.
