Manufacturing Technology Education
  • Responsible for developing the technical educational content for operators and line management of the manufacturing technology.
  • Determines the evaluation criteria of the technical competency and minimum standards that operators, line management, and a build team must achieve before building or operating the process independently within the manufacturing technology.

Manufacturing Technology Innovation- road mapping
  • Keeps abreast of emerging manufacturing technology development/improvements within the industry and incorporates into the design requirements so that the process design maintains its capability to deliver the product(s) and/or service(s) meeting the market requirements and internal/external risk tolerances and standards while achieving the best total cost to operate.
  • Through direct contact or team, develops strategic partnership with customers/businesses to develop deep knowledge/understanding of the manufacturing setting, business product/service life cycle, environmental, and sustainability impact, future growth considerations, as well as overall cost of ownership and long-term usability of assets
  • Participates in industry organizations as the Manufacturing Technology SME representing Cargill to influence and keep abreast of regulations and/or RAGAGEP applicable to the manufacturing technology
  • Develop a strategy and management of the intellectual property and freedom to operate for the manufacturing technology.

Talent Development
  • Provides strategic functional leadership, coaching and manages process engineers that directly support the manufacturing technology.
  • Creates plans for workforce needs to support the manufacturing technology and has overall responsibility for developing, maintaining and acquiring talent across the manufacturing technology.
  • Leverages organization capabilities of cross-functional internal and external resources to define and monitor performance of a manufacturing technology


Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
