Description of the job :
A vacancy for a Manufacturing Non Recurring Expert has arisen within Airbus (Commercial Aircraft) in Toulouse. You will join FCCA Manufacturing Costing.
FCCA Manufacturing Costing is a key enabler for Airbus to reach competitive costing targets for all programs and pricing agreements with suppliers (new contracts, claims, pricing models) and to take balanced operational and strategic decisions on a wide range of manufacturing and procurement topics.
Using detailed, up to date knowledge of aircraft manufacturing processes, FCCA provides a neutral, independent view of manufacturing costs and actively supports supplier negotiations and Airbus decision making on the full perimeter of current and future manufacturing processes/technologies. FCCA is responsible for the full aircraft perimeter for all programs (R&T, Single Aisle family, A220, A330, A350XWB, A380, Beluga) both NRC (Non-Recurring Costs) and RC (Recurring Costs), Make and Buy.
FCC and especially FCCA are living a major transformation enabled by Digitalization which will have significant impact in the relationship with our customers (towards business partnering), our methods and tools (digital tools, big data) and our people skills and competences (data analysis, business partnering). This requires an empowered and transnational leadership at FCCA level which ensure the deployment of the transformation project across the different manufacturing teams.
The candidate will join FCCACB (Programs Support Team) and support Costing operational cases where NRC competences are needed in order to properly assess costs for Industrialization (mainly Manufacturing Engineering activities) and Jigs and Tools, typically for New Developments and R&T projects (for example: A350 Bricks, A321XLR, Fuselage of Tomorrow...).
In addition to that, the candidate will participate in the creation of the Manufacturing NRC Reference Chamber. Depending on the technical and leadership competences, the candidate could become the Reference Chamber Leader.

Task & accountabilities :
The role of the Reference Chambers or teams of Costing and Manufacturing Engineering representatives have been set up with the following scope and responsibilities:
• Development, implementation and documentation of costing models and references representing best practice processes for the specific technology. These models and references are used across the Airbus organization in both the early design phases (Design to Cost, DtC) as well as in supplier negotiations for fully defined work packages.
• Skill development and knowledge transfer to the costing teams and other relevant stakeholders
• Support of Costing staff in specific estimation, procurement or Design to Cost activities according to needs, ensuring understanding, credibility and durable confidence in Costing results.
• Development and maintenance of Airbus Costing knowledge of current and future technologies
So far, the focus of the Reference Chambers has been the RC (Recurring Costs) for the different technologies (Machining, Sheet Metal, Composites, Assembly, Tubes & Pipes, Forgings, and Surface Treatments), for which more than 40 Cost Models have been defined and are now available in the Digital Costing tool. The next step is the Manufacturing NRC (Non Recurring Costs): the industrialization costs and Jigs and Tools needed for any new development or derivative.

The Manufacturing NRC Reference Chamber will be responsible for:
• Development of the strategy for a True Should Cost approach for NRC
• Harmonization of the definition of the NRC content (cost chapter 7 and sub-cost chapters)
• Creation of cleaned references (based on past and current Aircraft development programs) to be used by the models. In terms of Jigs and Tools, this will mean a complete map of manufacturing lines for all programs with cost and technical features
• Development of parametrical models for the different sub-cost chapters, as per today's ways of working but considering future DDMS (Digital Design Manufacturing and Services) impact. This will also include models for automated systems to be embedded in the manufacturing lines
• Creation of a list of standard risks and opportunities to be considered in any new NRC estimation based on past experience and future trends
• Creation of the method that will enable general costing engineers to estimate NRC

This role will involve some punctual travels for business in France and Europe and as such you must be able to travel accordingly.

This job requires an awareness of any potential compliance risks and a commitment to act with integrity, as the foundation for the Company's success, reputation and sustainable growth.
