The Enterprise Visibility Mobility Engineering Change Implementation Team is being formed to project manage engineering changes through the product lifecycle.

This will improve customer satisfaction, operational efficiencies and product profitability.
Plan, track and execute engineering changes (ECs) to optimize business results. You will be accountable for determining the optimal EC transition date to minimize excess inventory and maintain production continuity.

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.
