DataScan Intern, Engineering in Jacksonville, Florida


Local Candidates preferred due to the timing and nature of the position.

Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC, a division of JM Family, one of FORTUNE’s best companies to work for, has an immediate opening in our Vehicle Processing Centers (VPC) located in Jacksonville, Florida for paid part-time, temporary Engineering Interns for a three month period. We are seeking two intern Associates who have a strong desire to learn and grow their academic knowledge as a partner in our professional environment.

The interns will assist with gathering data for a manufacturing efficiency project. This will include observing and documenting time studies of production workers installing accessories on new vehicles at the VPCs to determine the standard time it takes to complete our installations and establish a benchmark to perform a task. The objective of the project is to explain how information contained within a series of time studies in each of our accessory installations can be used to measure and evaluate baseline installation times (cycle time). Once a baseline is determined we will be able to target performance metrics using techniques to establish efficient accessory shop level output.

Interns will complete time studies in person for each accessory to ensure accuracy of the installation and timing. Occasionally there may be a need to observations completed using a GoPro if psychological factors come into play. 30 individual observations will need to be conducted per accessory/model combination.

Time study observations will be documented in an excel template. Each installation that is studied will be measured in a standard way to guarantee consistency across each facility and each associate. Each measurement will be averaged across the number of observations.

Interns will adhere to safety and quality policy and procedures and support site/department compliance objectives. Other projects or duties assigned by managers
