Job Description

Roles & Responsibilities:
  • Responsible for just in time planning, material requirements planning, capacity planning, and production activity control. 
  • Coordinates planning strategy for dependent and non-master items with Master Planner. 
  • Converts planned orders to production orders and purchase orders for dependent and non-master items. 
  • Verifies material and capacity available. Releases production orders for manufacturing. 
  • Reconciles problems by identifying work error messages, expediting material shortages, and coordinating with other planners, Master Planners, and Purchasing. 
  • Balances demand with capacity for dependent and non-master items. Serves as Team Leader and member of PCT, PPT, or Sub-PSMT. 
Planning Phase:
  • Understand BOM requirements for demand category of project given by the Test Lead or Lead Engineer. Take note of any “pre-work” performed by the design team to prevent extra sourcing activities downstream.
  • Investigate requirement availability both internally and externally within PSL.
  • If inventory is not available or is limited, send RFQ to the Procurement Team with requirements needed and corresponding need date(s). Provide any details needed to expedite the RFQ process (i.e. preferred vendor, material source etc.)
  • Utilize the Procurement Tracking Sheet to input the demand established by the TL.
Execution Phase:
  • Ensure parts requirements are delivered to the Assembly Techs or other appropriate project team member(s) in time to meet the scheduled start time of the project activity.
  • Monitor the PTS to ensure that delivery of part requirements align with the need date(s).
  • Monitor & replenish safety stock items established by the TL/PL to prevent any slowdown in the assembly/test process.
Communication Phase:
  • Responsible for identifying any delays in the deliveries of parts that will push out the start date of project activities to the TL. An established recovery plan needs to be developed with the procurement team so that we may minimize interruption of project activities.
  • Send weekly demand views out to procurement team highlighting need date(s) and any pacing item(s) that may be game changers for the project.
Procurement Tracking Sheet (PTS)
  • The main purpose of the PTS is to ensure that all project members have the visibility/ability to understand procurement status and to be able to quickly discern pacing items relative to the Test/Build schedule. 
  • Demand is tracked from the moment the project request is submitted until the time in which the item(s) are received by the Warehouse.
  • The Project Planner will follow the request in PTS and will make regular daily status updates as they occur. These updates are typically summarized in Project Status meetings weekly.
  • The conditional formatting set up in the PTS allows for easy visual alerts to the planner so that they can react quickly to progress needing attention.
Request for Quote (RFQ)
  • The RFQ website is intended to be used to retrieve vendor quotes for prototype Assemblies and subsequent components thereof. The quotes will be used to best determine the path a project could take in order to procure the desired components.
  • When submitting an RFQ please keep in mind that the Part/Material Number must be at least at the Prototype Release stage or further in CWI. This allows procurement to track by revision level and will assist in holding vendors accountable for quotes by revision unlike when parts are in Design Phase.
  • Typically, the engineer/requestor would submit the RFQ, however the Project Planner can also submit the RFQ on their behalf when needed.
  • The RFQ number is one of the main elements tracked in the PTS to establish a reference point for status and future need.
  • It is an Industry/HES standard that all formal quotes be addressed to a procurement specialist (Buyer) in order for them to be valid and to be used in creating the purchase requisition (PR).
Minimum Qualifications:
  • High School Diploma or GED
  • Requires detailed product knowledge and advanced knowledge of Just In Time, Materials Requirements Planning, Capacity Planning, Production Activity Control, and systems and technology typically achieved through partial APICS certification or 4-6 years experience working in a manufacturing, procurement, or customer service related capacity
