This is a Technical Subcontract Management (TSM) field support position. The TSM will be responsible for providing onsite support at multiple Lockheed Martin (LM) major system and airframe suppliers. Approximately 90% of the TSMs time will be spent onsite at a LM supplier facility.
A TSM is a member of the Supply Chain Management (SCM) team that LM Aeronautics uses to minimize disruptions to the supply chain by providing “in the field” oversight of supplier execution. As a project manager overseeing multiple LM Suppliers, daily activities will include: working with supplier personnel to prioritize components through manufacturing, validating the status of the deliverable parts and providing detailed status to LM procurement, preparing plans to reduce/prevent shortages, identifying risks in the supply chain, and developing risk mitigation plans to minimize the potential impact to LM.
Candidates should have an understanding of production processes as they relate to aircraft systems components and avionics equipment, machined part fabrication, tooling fabrication, and lean manufacturing. The candidate should be a self-starter that is capable of analyzing supplier processes and developing improvement plans in collaboration with personnel from both the supplier and LM. The candidate will regularly collaborate across multiple functions (within LM and at the supplier facility), including production, procurement, quality, and engineering, in order to expedite parts/assemblies that are required to support each of the LM Aeronautics Lines of Business (LOB).
The success of the person in this position will greatly depend on his/her ability to communicate clearly and effectively with supplier personnel at varying levels of an organization. The candidate should have strong interpersonal skills and be able to build relationships quickly with multiple stakeholders.
