This Vehicle Integration Noise Vibration & Harshness Engineer will work closely with the System Integration engineers and Design Release Engineering teams to determine the NVH Functional Objectives and complete physical validation for all vehicle and system level NVH requirements. Through specific functional targeting and benchmarking, this engineer will work with these teams to connect the NVH Targets with specific Functional Objectives and determine program feasibility through design best practices for local dynamic stiffnesses, global stiffnesses, transfer function requirements, and all necessary content definition to meet the NVH Functional Objectives.
Create and maintain technical specifications for the vehicle for Noise Vibration & Harshness requirements.
Lead regular Vehicle Integration reviews with the broader team to develop and achieve all Vehicle targets with the Lead NVH Engineer’s guidance.
Develop and execute testing and validation plan of the Vehicle with documentation via Vehicle Testing Plans and specific DVP&Rs
Meet all performance, packaging, cost and timing objectives.
Lead, or support as required, any required body and chassis tuning programs
Own and manage instrumentation and data analysis for all problem solving to achieve targets and root cause things gone wrong
Other deliverables as defined by manager.
Lead engineering team for development and achievement of NVH functional objectives for a new vehicle
Lead virtual and physical validation efforts for both the Design Verification and Process Verification phases of the program with CAE teams
Act as technical NVH lead for all functional objectives to connect good design practices and ensure achievement of NVH functional targets
Manage vehicle development team proactively, with focused technical problem solving mind-set. Lead project from start to finish.
Support development / testing strategy and timing plan to ensure compatibility with overall program; monitor resources as required to minimize risks; support alternate plans as required.
Balance all NVH functional objectives and elevate where conflicts arise
Support prototype and production assembly events at domestic or international locations.
