Posted on: June 8, 2021

Job Description:

Job Description The EPAWSS (Eagle Passive Active Warning and Survivability System) Program, part of the TacAir Product Line, is one of ECS's most strategic program portfolios. Currently under contract with Boeing for both EMD and LRIP, the program is working through qualification of the system as well as preparing to ramp into its first lot of low-rate initial production in support of the F15E and EX platforms.

The EPAWSS Affordability OPM is a key leadership role along with the Program Manager and Engineering Manager on the Transition to Production IPT, managing affordability burn down plans, planning and executing production NRE (non-recurring engineering), end of life and bridge buys, and DMS (diminishing manufacturing supply) re-spin activities. This role will work cross functionally to monitor and report on progress related to UPC (unit production cost) and DTUPC (Design to Unit Production Cost). The Affordability OPM will be the interface between the factories and supply chain to the program office, prioritizing and managing operations affordability projects, assessing and targeting initiatives with the biggest return on investment. Projects are primarily focused on, but not limited to, material cost improvements (target pricing, long term agreements, dual sourcing), assembly HPU (hours per unit) and DPU (defects per unit) reductions, and improved test efficiency (automation, de-bug, normalization). EPAWSS is a highly visible program both internally with senior management and externally with Boeing and USAF. This role requires someone with the unique ability to work tasks at the micro level, while being able to articulate progress to that audience at the macro level. Blending execution with strategy, the EPAWSS Affordability OPM will play a key role in helping the program meet or exceed aggressive cost targets.
