  • Work with the quality consultant, operators, and managers to develop procedures and working practices to ensure timely, quality, and safe product and production.

  • Establish working practices and procedures. This includes a safety review of all and new materials to be handled.
  • Set up the lab with the appropriate equipment, working practices and documentation. The target (this may take some time) is to offer comprehensive materials classification and characterization for internal and external use. 
  • Assist the team in meeting performance targets.
  • Identify improvements for the processing equipment. Work with manufacturing to make those improvements.
