Job Description

As Process Engineer, you will be responsible for an assigned process (or sub process). For an existing process this means that on-going process data should be gathered and analysed, deviations need to be investigation for potential product impact, changes should be evaluated prior to implementation and data gathered post implementation to prove that the change had the desired effect. For new processes it means that the (small scale) developed process needs to be evaluated and the changes required within the VLF for the robust and compliant implementation of the process are defined precisely. The process engineer needs to work closely within the Technical Transfer team to ensure that the development knowledge is accurately transferred into the operational documentation. In both situations you will work closely with the manufacturing specialists (system owners), operators, GMP specialists, Quality department and the process development group (VPAD). The process engineer must be a Subject Matter Expert (SME) and needs to be up to speed with all developments internally as externally on the process.

  • Identifying and participating in improvement projects to increase the speed, reliability, yield or capacity of the process.
