Process Engineers work closely with, and often serve as support to, a number of different departments and personnel. As a result, and in order to achieve optimum effectiveness, they must maintain a positive, cooperative relationship with these various departments/individuals. They must also be responsive to their needs.
Process Engineers interact with all levels of the organization, i.e., with operators through senior managers. To be effective, they must be sensitive to, and cooperatively blend the needs and goals of these various levels with the common denominator of “achieving organizational objectives” (i.e., effective launches, safety, quality, productivity, cost reduction, and positive employee/ employer relations).
Finally, in the role of a problem solver, Process Engineers must remain objective and be able to make recommendations based on facts, regardless of whether those recommendations are popular.
