Moog Inc, was founded in 1951 when Bill Moog had one product and a vision of company culture so strong that it became the foundation of the company that we are today. We operate within a culture of trust and mutual respect, allowing our engineers to collaborate and produce cutting edge technology, as well as aiding our business in the ability to share goals and achieve them together. Our lines of precision motion control technology can be seen at the forefront of military and commercial aircraft markets, space exploration, and oil and gas markets to name a few.
Our Industrial Group in East Aurora, NY is hiring for a Value Stream Process Manager. In this role, one must be able to step back and view the value stream from a broad perspective. Are they able to understand the key system constraints, and be able to quickly spot critical process issues? They should have a good level of knowledge about lean thinking, or alternatively be willing to work closely with a lean coach, or subject matter expert to gain this knowledge. The value-stream manager must not focus on sub-optimizing the parts of the supply chain, but must concentrate on improving the value created by the whole system.
When we consider the scope of responsibility for a value-stream manager, at least two levels come to mind. First, there is the plant-level value-stream manager that looks basically after the value stream between the four walls of the plant; and perhaps takes into consideration the inbound and outbound logistics to/from that plant. But, there is a second level that considers the value stream at the enterprise-level. At the enterprise-level, the value-stream manager is responsible for eliminating waste throughout the whole value stream, often spanning several independent organizations. This can be very difficult as there are huge issues regarding trust, privacy, transparency, etc. in each organization involved.
Here’s an idea of what you can expect…..
Defining the product family by conducting product routing analysis and appropriate groupings.
Ensuring that a current state value stream map is created of the end-to-end value stream(s).
Conducting fact-based analysis of the current state map(s).
Preparing an ideal state map showing what the value stream could look like in the long term.
Preparing a future state map that uses lean techniques to eliminate waste and improve process value in the short to mid-term.
Creating a plan to achieve the future state.
Leading the implementation of the plan.
Leading and mobilizing the people inside and outside of the value stream to enable the required changes. (Including customers and suppliers)
Leading the day-to-day activities within the value stream to ensure that current commitments are achieved while improvements are being made.

Do you meet the requirements?
- BS Degree in an engineering or business related discipline.
- Minimum of seven years’ experience in a lean manufacturing environment.
- A true leader who can motivate individuals in the value stream to change behaviors and processes when needed.
- Effective relationship builder to establish rapport with all levels of the organization, and communicate with senior executives to achieve “buy in” to major changes.
- Strong change agent, someone who is always looking to make continuous improvements.
- Ability to create and manage value stream plan, and make the right decisions based on data.
- Highlight or create the right levers (or crisis), to show why urgent change is required?
- Customers and supplier interaction to ensure that “win-win” changes are made, while increasing value.
