3M manufacturing and quality engineers support the products, technologies and plants specific to a 3M business. These professionals safely and efficiently deliver quality products to global 3M customers. Engineers work on projects to: increase capacities of existing products; create processes to produce new products; lower production costs and inventories; assure quality products expected by customers; and meet or exceed all safety, regulatory, plant and customer requirements. In addition, all manufacturing and quality engineers are expected to have strong skills in project management, Lean manufacturing techniques and philosophy and Lean Six Sigma. Most manufacturing and quality engineers are located at plant sites throughout 3M locations worldwide.
3M has two parallel career paths in the technical organization known as the "dual ladder" system. In addition to a management career path, there is a technical career path. This technical path honors the prestige 3M technical employees have enjoyed during 3M's history. It also allows employees to advance in position and compensation consistent with contributions, all without abandoning what they do best.
