| Your challenges?
As Trainee Design for Excellence (DFX) you will get the opportunity to become an indispensable specialist and provide a great contribution to tomorrows’ manufacturing industry. In the Design & Engineering phase, 80% of the cost price is determined. More and more we see traditional Designers and Engineers (with the best intentions) focusing on functional requirements, spending too little time in Design for Manufacturing (DfM) and Design for Cost (DfC). Therefor it becomes more difficult to remain competitive in a challenging industry.
TMC and one of our clients in the Eindhoven region offer you an exclusive opportunity to become a specialist in the field of manufacturability and cost awareness. During a traineeship of about 2 years, you will learn and practice:
- Design for Manufacturing principles;
- Design for Cost principles;
- Effective influencing without power;
- Consult and lead cost reduction projects;
- Networking and stakeholder management skills (both internal as well as customer- & supplier contact).
| What do we expect from you?
The ideal candidate fits the following:
- Willing to invest in personal and professional development;
- Education: higher technical vocation (BSc) or university degree (MSc) in the field of Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics or equivalent;
- 2 to 5 years of experience, preferably design & engineering experience, as well as working on shop floor;
- Gets excited about intermediary position between R&D and Production;
- Interest or affinity with product and process cost and savings;
- Strong social and communication skills (self-confident, persuasive, pro-active, stakeholder management, curious);
- Fluent in Dutch (writing and verbal) is a pre.
