Integrated Planner

RTN 2 (Raytheon IDMS)
Dallas, TX 75201
Job Description
The integrated business planning function within RMD works to align the actual performance of value streams to the financial and operational plans that govern them. Actual performance is a reflection of material supply available dates versus scheduled demand dates, actual process cycle times versus planning factors and available versus required capacity. Financial plans come in the forms of program AOPs, EACs, and monthly forecast updates. Operational plans are reflected in the MRP system linking program end-item requirements through factory work centers into purchase part suppliers. When these three pieces are aligned the result is an integrated plan which provides the basis for sales and operations planning (S&OP). S&OP gives program managers and value stream leaders the ability to come together and make strategic and tactical decisions about how to collectively run their businesses to optimize customer satisfaction and financial performance.
This integrated planning role is focused on program execution readiness for major end-items tied to firm contracts executed in RMD. This role is responsible for understanding production demand profiles and the corresponding internal and external constraints to ensure potential issues are well-understood, communicated, and addressed in a timely manner. The individual selected for this role will work to enable decision making and collaboration across a variety of functions and program areas through data analysis, simulation, and fact-based influence. In addition to driving accountability for known issues, this role will identify areas of greatest risk and variability and analyze different scenarios in order to establish contingency plans as needed to increase our ability to deliver on schedule. The planner will be directly involved in scheduling and planning decisions for major deliverables and provide process support and oversight for factory execution with focus on near-term and mid-term plans. The individual in this role will need to leverage strong interpersonal and leadership skills in order to be successful in optimizing the schedule around factory efficiency, high customer satisfaction, and consistency in achieving financial targets. This role will work closely with the cross-functional execution teams.
