  • Overview


    As one of the world’s leading analytical instrumentation companies, Bruker covers a broad spectrum of advanced solutions in all fields of research and development. All our systems and

    instruments are designed to improve safety of products, accelerate time-to-market and support industries in successfully enhancing quality of life. We’ve been driving innovation in analytical instrumentation for 50 years now. Today, worldwide more than 6,000 employees are working on this permanent challenge, at over 70 locations on all continents.



    Manufacturing Engineers manages and assets risk of Product Life Cycle for TSOM and FM products throughout all Phase Gate process by identifying exposure to key issues for each Phase Gate:

    • Phase 1(Concept) - provides early vendor and suppler input along with input of new and or similar manufacturing process of concept presented, highlighting probability of success through risk assessments and mitigation.
    • Phase 2 (Feasibility) - gives early input to engineering using DFx and DFMA processes and identifying Key supplier requirements. Estimate’s cycle times based of Proof of Concept designs and create processes for manufacturing based on FMEA. Develops preliminary QA plan for 1st article inspection and process tracking.
    • Phase 3 (Development) - drives PLC requirement and performs proof of manufacturing on beta systems, ranking of supplier selection, i.e. weak and or unique single source conditions. Creates robust test plans for manufacturing and scales up production for release to manufacturing. Develops and designs tooling and fixtures based on capital equipment requirements and updates risk and mitigation plans
    • Phase 4 (Scale-up) - continues to drive PLC requirements and demonstrates all proof of manufacturing activities and PLC management, including ECO Management, QA metrics and Key Performance Indicators, i.e. (First Pass Yield, In Box Quality, Out of Box Quality, material Obsolesces, Scrap and BOM management, etc.). 


    Manufacturing Engineering leads and transitions subsequent in- sourcing strategies if required into Operations and works closely with Product Development, Manufacturing Operations, Manufacturing Engineer for sustaining products along with Product Development and Operations internal customers to:

    • Provide sustaining engineering expertise and project management of in-sourcing strategies, including sustaining production requirements, quality improvement, and project management such as product transition, cost reduction, inventory reduction, and or sourcing change. 
    • Execution of manufacturing quality improvement strategy through final functional verification process (Final Test), managing non-conforming parts in process (NCMR), and closed loop corrective action (CLCR)
    • Lead strategic planning for Test, Manufacturing, and process creation.
    • Development of Manufacturing Documentation, Tooling, and Test Fixtures for both contract manufacturing and operations.
    • Identify and execute on opportunities for Gross Margin improvements through Risk and Mitigation plans per PLC and sourcing strategies.
    • Lead projects related to Best Cost Manufacturing and aligned with business objectives.  Examples may include Insourcing, Outsourcing, and/or Cost Reductions - Value Engineering.
    • Lead product ownership from Proof of Manufacturing through Obsolescence.
    • BOM Maintenance, Engineering Changes, Design Improvements , Lean Manufacturing, DMAIC, DFMA and DFx on NPI
