    •  Developing pilot processes for new product designs and design changes.
    • Providing DfX input to the product design, supply chain and servicing processes.
    • Generating process design documentation, work instructions and specifications.
  • Monitoring process performance ensuring a consistent output is achieved:
    • Analysing data to determine process stability
    • Raising non-conformance reports and carrying out root cause analysis on non-conforming processes or components in line with the defined CAPA process.
