Work cooperatively in a team environment to develop and enhance robust manufacturing processes and tooling to support the company’s growth in the aerospace and industrial investment casting markets.

Develop, maintain, and teach “best practice” investment casting procedures and practices to ensure CPP business objectives are satisfied.

Identify problems, generate alternatives and implement solutions to problems that affect yield, rework and overall quality of the product using a standardized approach.

Take a leadership role occasionally in resolving cross-functional problems on cross-functional teams.


  • Support the construction of dies (shrink factor analysis), gages and support tooling needed to produce and inspect ceramic cores, wax patterns and castings.
  • Identify and improve process yields using various data analysis techniques (statistical, mathematical, DOE, 6 Sigma, etc.) to uncover variables in the process.
  • Interface with tooling vendors and CPP Purchasing to produce a quality tool/die at a competitive price.
  • Control the dimensional quality of castings to meet or exceed customer expectations.
  • Develop internal job instructions.
  • Identify, evaluate and implement new process technologies that will improve manufacturing and product capabilities.
  • Document work procedures and processes.
  • Work closely with other departments to ensure organizational objectives are met.
  • Publish reports on research and completed tests using data-based decisions.
  • Routinely audit production lots for adherence to established techniques and to ensure the repeatability of the results.
  • Maintain a positive work atmosphere by behaving and communicating in a professional manner.
  • Improve labor utilization and reduce cost.
  • Communicate with tooling suppliers, core suppliers, and customers to meet product needs


Improve yield: At least 80% yield on products
Improve yield by 2% until world class standards are met (continuous improvement).
Complete tooling within 5% of originally quoted price.
