Provide technical chemical engineering support and expertise to Production, Laboratory, and Maintenance required for production process changes in support of Operation Excellence. This includes customer technical transfers, modifications to existing processes or adding new processes that will improve process safety, reduce plant operational costs as well as improve product quality and efficiency. Additionally, provide expertise in diagnosing and correcting major operational problems.
Evaluate customer bid proposals and develop process flow diagrams, establish technical fit into existing facilities & equipment, identify process, facility and safety gaps with cost effective technical solutions, develop cost estimate, implementation timing with assumptions, and alternative to be considered.
Develop and make recommendations for new process designs and/or modifications for assigned areas to ensure maximum operating efficiency, return on investment, safety, and compliance with regulatory requirements.
Evaluate pharmaceutical processes and operations to improve operating efficiency and rate, product quality, on-stream factor and economy.
Prepare process flow sheets, energy balances, material balances, etc., in order to provide sufficient information for Project Engineering to prepare detailed specifications for cost estimates and construction.
Provide daily process engineering support to Production on operating problems and to maintenance/plant engineering on equipment performance and materials problems.
Provide technical recommendations to permit plant operation within state and federal government regulatory requirements (FDA, EMEA, OSHA, EPA, IBC, etc.).
Provide technical support to departments outside Production.
Review all process designs and modifications for safety implications and requirements.
Actively promote a safe work environment for self, employees, and other personnel to reduce personnel and environmental SHE risks. Display positive safety behaviors at all times and observe and promote all safety and security rules. Support and actively participate in safety programs such as STOP and PRIDE. Attend company safety meetings and ensure that on-line safety training is current and complete. Maintain vigilance to prevent and report unauthorized entry into or suspicious behavior concerning the overall location, work area, and related information systems.
