Essential Functions

Analyzes, researches, designs, and tests component parts, processes, or systems to develop new and/or improve core products. Designs products or systems in mechanical and electromechanical actuators. Develops and recommends solutions to a variety of complex engineering requirements to ensure that design objectives are met, including required program scope, cost and schedule constraints. Projects at this level are assigned to develop in-depth knowledge and skills and to build knowledge of the organization, processes, and customers. Must be familiar with the detail design of components such as ball/acme screws, gears and gear trains, electric motors & brakes and similar equipment. 1. Develops complex conceptual and detailed design specifications by analyzing product performance for internal and external customer requirements. Investigates design factors such as function, materials, performance, interchangeability, non-recurring and recurring cost, operational efficiency, and contractual requirements. Performs diverse and complex product development, modification, and evaluation of components, subsystems, and systems by applying engineering principles and developing new or unique analysis tools as required. 2. Applies scientific analysis and mathematical models to predict and measure the outcome and consequence of design alternatives. Interprets and validates test results for accuracy and precision. Oversees and monitors product acceptance procedures and parameters to achieve customer and product reliability and safety standards (e.g. failure analysis). Utilizes and interprets predictive models to simulate and verify design concepts. 3. Completes technical project elements (e.g. preparation of product or system layout; defining system architecture; creating software development plans; etc.) as assigned. Develops critical data and analysis necessary to present technical product and/or system proposals to customers. 4. Contributes to the completion milestones associated with specific projects (e.g. create functional diagrams and system layouts; review detailed drawings and schematics; define data structure, interfaces and programming logic; analyze material requirements; research customer data item requirements). Maintain efforts within defined cost and schedule constraints, including statusing and root cause/corrective actions of associated variances. May act as Control Account Manager for projects applying Earned Value Management. 5. Reviews product specifications and/or modifications to ensure clarity, completeness, form, fit, function, and conformity to standards and procedures. Troubleshoots design errors, omissions, and other deficiencies, and recommends revisions, engineering change orders, and improvements to engineering management or the project team. 6. Provides technical information for review with product engineering teams applying consistent engineering practices, standards, and documentation methods (e.g. structured design process; customer design reviews). Writes supporting documentation for procedures and technical reports. 7. Conducts complex analyses and devises tests to validate performance in the development of new products, methods, materials or processes. Completes required documentation, generates detailed reports, creates customer proposals and presentations and/or change proposals. Determines required actions, performs or directs completion of tasks, and publishes findings and/or results. 8. Compiles and analyzes operation, test, and research data, develop acceptance, engineering evaluation, development and qualification/certification test plans, procedures, and reports. 9.
