Position Overview

As a member of the EU&AF AME team, working with all stakeholders in the creation and deployment of digital twin models to maximize the benefit to Lear for capital expenditure and labor, whilst understanding risk of Customer impact. This role is to support the Digital Twin strategy for these business groups. There is a 6 level approach to adopting Digital Twin tools. This role is specifically focused on level 3, 4 and 5. Level 4 – Discrete Event Simulation – is the primary focus, with the task to create digital models of all active production processes, (allowing Plant Teams to simulate various scenarios).

 

Responsibilities will include (but may not be limited to)

Discrete Event Simulation: - Working with the rest of the Digital Twin team and with the rest of AME to;

-              Define all Standards for using Technomatix Plant Simulation (or future Lear Standard softwares) to create processes, including creation of a library of process blocks, standard coding protocols, etc.

-              Create working models for all processes in all Plants to allow local simulations to be run with key variable changes by the Plant team to all decision making, reducing risk to of customer impact, maximizing value from capital investment and identifying cost saving opportunities. Simulations is enabling Plants to make decisions with best possible understanding of the outcomes.

-              Create working models for all processes for all awarded projects to allow local simulations to be run with key variable changes by the AME and Plant IE teams, to confirm capital requirements, ensuring Lear maximizing the value from capital expenditure.

-              Where time allows, create working models for anticipated processes for project RFQs to allow local simulations to be run with key variable changes by the AME and Plant IE teams, to ensure competitive quotations

-              Ensure standard data requirements are defined for all modelling requests and all outputs from the simulations are clearly noted, including the benefit to Lear.

-              Refining of models based on comparison to physical twin results with same inputs.

-              As required, support material flow modelling activities using the associated software within Lear.

-              Presentation of outputs internally within Lear, when requested.

 

•             Virtual Commissioning: Working with the rest of the Digital Twin team and with the rest of AME, particularly the Controls team, to;-

-              Create Models for future processes to combine with PLC code (using SIMMIT and PLC Sim Advance) to assess PLC programs for equipment prior to installation.

 

•             3D Layout Planning: Working with the rest of the Digital Twin team and with the rest of AME, to;-

-              Create 3D models from 3D Point cloud data for current installations.

-              Using 3D models, create accurate 3d plant layouts for layout planning activities.

-              Participate in layout planning workshops on-site, with key Plant stakeholders and AME plant support.

-              Participate in optimization workshops on-site, with key Plant stakeholders and AME plant support.

-              Train Plant key users for usage 3D layout planning SW

 

•             sharing lessons learned & best practices out of simulations including spreading culture of “digitalization” within Lear.

 

 

To be a success in this role you must have: 

•             English language at a good level.

•             Discrete Event Simulation software training or experience (in Technomatrix is a plus)

•             Basic understanding of coding.

•             Strong problem-solving skills.

•             Good communicator – comfortable in presenting to all levels within the business.

•             Fully self-motivated

•             Good working knowledge of MS Office.

•             Training/Experience in Technomatix Plant Simulation software and SIMMIT or PLC Sim Advance.

•             6σ Black Belt is a plus

•             Engineering / Manufacturing / IT / Mathematics University Qualification
