Description of the job
A vacancy for a Manufacturing processes simulation specialist has arisen within Airbus (Commercial Aircraft) in Toulouse. You will join Manufacturing Technologies department in St Eloi plant.

In Manufacturing Technologies department, we are responsible for the management of the manufacturing technologies used in the plant to produce elementary parts and assembly them. We are in charge of improving existing technologies & developing new ones for our future products. We are an active relay for the transverse functions in order to disseminate best practices for the interest of the plant & Airbus.

In this frame, you will be accountable for processes (including industrial means & tools) simulation activities for St Eloi plant.
You will be in charge to:
- support the development/improvement of simulation laws in cooperation with Engineering team,
- manage the simulation plant’s needs through the specifications defined by Methods specialists,
- make some simulations and subcontract the others,
- collect data on the shopfloor to validate models and insure their continuous improvement.

The main technologies of the plant are:
- Superplastic forming, Hot forming & cold forming
- Machining
- Welding
- 3D Printing Metal
- Heat Treatment
- Drilling
- Fastening

Should you wish to work in such environment, join us!

Tasks & accountabilities
Your main tasks and responsibilities will include:

• Define the needs of simulation for all the technologies of the plant answering to Methods specialist specification

• Define plant’s simulation needs to support production, improvement and R&T projects, development of new products answering to Methods specialists specifications and manage the portfolio & priorities

• Manage the available simulation laws available for St Eloi application and their limits of use

• Support the development & continuous improvement of simulation laws in cooperation with engineering team: simulation of the product during the process (deformation, residual stresses, heat transfers …) as well as the production means & tools.

• Manage the simulations activities for the plant: make simulation and manage the subcontracted ones to deliver them on time, cost and quality.
