Responsible for taking general mechanical design requirements, refining them within the scope of the system requirements, developing alternative design approaches, and finally, following design implementation from concept to prototype, to final system verification.
Investigate component cost and weight reduction, and conduct feasibility for packaging electrical components and brackets throughout the vehicle as well as managing development projects, negotiating development & purchasing strategies, and coordinating with other departments, suppliers, and manufacturing.
This Mechanical Engineer must be proficient with SolidWorks 3-D CAD design and have past work related experience designing heavy equipment (hydraulics, pneumatics, chain driven gears, and large scale mechanical power transmission).
Evaluate customer returns for root cause and corrective actions, utilizing formal problem solving tools such as 8D analysis, PFMEAs, Control plans, etc. and being able to tie this analysis back to operations standard work and product documentation.
Develops, evaluates, and improves manufacturing methods, utilizing knowledge of product design, materials and parts, fabrication processes, tooling and production equipment capabilities, assembly methods, and quality control standards.
This position will primarily be paint process oriented with focus on process definition, process improvement, process efficiency, quality and reduce cost while globally aligning with customer initiatives.
Management responsibilities include supervision of design and drafting staff, coordination with clients and associates, and organization of design and construction administration activities to meet established schedules and budgets.
This role will also expand to supporting landing gear control system development efforts, served by the system integration organization. Develop and support a model-based approach to requirements development and system level testing.
In this role, the selected candidate will be responsible for the creation of design concepts, 3D layouts and 2D drawings, engineering calculations and simulations, verification of performance and manufacturability, and management of cost and weight.
