Job Description:

As an SPC Engineer, you are responsible for the effectiveness and efficiency of the SPC program in Micron. This includes collaborating with Process Engineering and Metrology team to ensure they are adhering to the Micron Quality Standards for Statistical Process Control. Additionally, you are responsible for prioritizing inline parameters that need engineering attention, sourcing variation contributors on critical parameters, providing internal customers with SPC performance metrics, and providing CpK metrics to Micron Corporate to be shared with external customers for review. 

Responsibilities (include, but not limited to):

Implementing SPC Business Process and Best Known Methods

  • Understand the different types of limits used in SPC system and drives the proper use of limits throughout the engineering community
  • Understand proper control techniques and enforces use for critical parameters, as needed to detect quality deviations
  • Works with engineering community to set appropriate goals for SPC metrics (CpK, %OOC, etc.) on a semi-annual basis or as needed
  • Utilize WW SPC Business Process to enforce use of BKM’s with regards to SPC
  • Participates in WW SPC meetings to ensure the best interests of MSB’s internal/external customers are considered with regards to any modifications to the WW SPC BP and/or BKM’s
  • Regularly attends Process Engineering and/or Metrology team meetings to enable the sourcing and elimination of common cause variation
  • Act as Quality Engineering representative for control limit modification approvals
  • Frequently reviews critical inline parameters to source variation

SPC Training Development

  • Collaborate with local Workforce Development team to deliver any new updates to the SPC Business Process, local policies, or procedures
  • Develop new SPC related training material, as necessary
  • Deliver SPC related training material, when necessary, to affected local personnel
