Job Description

Eaton’s Hydraulics division is currently seeking a Global Fulfillment Manager to join our team.
The Global Fulfillment Manager is responsible for:
Deploying and maintaining the elements of the Hydraulics Fulfillment Model: ABCQ, PFEP, Replenishment Design, Inventory Management, and Capacity Management.  The Global Manager manages the efforts of the Regional Fulfillment teams through a functional reporting relationship and manages a direct team of Global analysts that provide support to the regional teams and execute global fulfillment projects.
The Fulfillment team is the bridge between the SIOP Supply Planners and the Central Planning teams, designing efficient replenishment management systems (e.g. Min-Max) .  The Fulfillment team connects the SIOP Supply Planners and the Manufacturing facilities by maintaining accurate capacity and inventory models that position the operations to run efficiently and meet customer demand.   The Fulfillment teams provide a centralized service to a group of sites and/or the Central Planning Team in a Region or Business.
As part of this responsibility, the manager is responsible to ensure that the Hydraulics Inventory Management policy, processes, and tools are fully deployed in each Region and Business.   This position is accountable for the full deployment of a large proportion of the Hydraulics Materials Playbook, including the ABCQ, PFEP, Inventory Management, Replenishment, E&O, Capacity Management, and all Materials Systems chapters.
Accelerating the deployment of consumption based replenishment and pull systems (e.g. Min-Max) is a priority for the Global Fulfillment Manager.  Aligning this with the ABCQ, PFEP, and SIOP processes by leveraging the Inventory Playbook tool is key.  As such, this manager must be a subject manager expert in all of these tools and processes.
This position is on the career path between the site Materials teams and the various Regional and Global Senior Manager positions.  This position will be responsible to provide direction, guidance, and support to site and regional leaders and process experts around the world.  The individual holding this position must be able to hold people accountable to the strategy and to drive execution.  Given these requirements, it is important that the Global Materials Fulfillment Manager possesses leadership qualities to develop the team and manage without authority.
In this role you will:
  • Launch and Manage a Global Inventory Council to drive continuous improvement of tools and process, share best practices, develop the team members, and drive improved business performance
  • Manage a direct team of two senior Materials resources and functional team of 4 Regional Central Planning leads and a TBD list of SSC analysts

  • Designing and deploying standardized replenishment models and tools that align with the ABCQ and PFEP while delivering required DOH and OTD expectations.
  • Accelerating the Global deployment of consumption base planning and Pull systems, including the deployment of Supplier Vis, MFG Pro Min-Max, etc.
  • As a leader, this position requires an effective deployment of the Eaton Leadership model.  The Materials Systems Manager must be an effective leader with professional presence and skills at developing individuals, setting goals and holding people accountable, leveraging resources, communicating effectively, and building organizational capability.
