Description: Lockheed Martin is seeking a Manufacturing Engineer for a position in Grand Prairie, TX to support the PAC-3 Evolutionary Development (Ev-Dev) Production Engineering team. The PAC-3 Ev-Dev team handles development efforts that relate to the PAC-3 Missile or Command Launch System. This can include redesign for obsolescence, design of new subsystems, development of new capabilities, flight tests etc. The primary mission of this position is to ensure new designs are producible (Design for Manufacture) in a full rate manufacturing environment and at a competitive cost (Design to Cost).

Accomplishing this mission takes creativity and innovative approaches.

It can also involve working directly with our government customers, proposal estimating, manufacturing readiness assessments, make or buy analysis, presenting at various design and manufacturing reviews, travel to various manufacturing facilities including suppliers and other Lockheed sites and any other manufacturing or tooling related issues that may arise.

For this specific opening we are looking for someone with intimate knowledge of J-STD-001 with experience manufacturing to Class 3. Processes like SMT pick and place, convection reflow, vapor phase reflow, wave solder, selective solder, conformal coatings, AOI/AXI and various cleaning and cleanliness testing processes for example. Evaluating designs and providing manufacturing feedback to the design team in order to end up with circuit card assemblies that are as easy and inexpensive to manufacture as possible while still meeting performance requirements. The ability to question design requirements that drive cost to ensure there is good technical justification is desired. Being able to build relationships and work in a collaborative environment with other disciplines is a must. Experience building cables and wiring harnesses to IPC-620 and electrical subsystems is a plus but not required.
