Provides expert explanations, techniques, or approaches to colleagues, management, and customers.

Responsibilities

  • Responsible for carrying out specific engineering project technical assignments as part of larger program objectives in the design and development of products, test equipment, or processes.
  • Assist with the determination of design requirements. Recommend design architecture. Determine design feasibility, evaluate design alternatives, and select optimal design approach. Consult with other engineering personnel to resolve more complex design alternatives. Collaborate with the project team to solve complex technical problems, resolve design issues, and manage risk (technical and hazards). Maintain liaisons with other departments.
  • Develop requirements, specifications, schematics, simulations (where applicable), assembly drawings, bills of material, and material cost estimates. Specify the design of cables and cable harness assemblies. Utilize electronic design tools such as schematic capture. Determine appropriate components, materials, and processes for specific applications. Work with service bureaus and suppliers on PCB layout, fabrication, and other design/test activities.
  • Develop reliability models for electrical, electronic, electromechanical, and electro-optical sub-assemblies and assemblies.
  • Ensure component reliability based on technical evaluation of suppliers specifications, designs, and manufacturing processes.
  • Review and implement design for manufacturing (DFM) and design for test (DFT) objectives.
  • Evaluate and analyze designs to assure technical soundness.
  • Prepare technical documents and reports. Prepare sub-system and module performance specifications. Prepare engineering specifications for major component purchases. Design engineering breadboards and prototypes. Evaluate engineering breadboards and prototypes and translate experimental results into design criteria.
  • Lead or conduct experiments/tests to determine operating characteristics of breadboards, prototypes, products, or processes.
  • Ensure that sound engineering principles are applied in laboratory or pilot plant work.
  • Assist manufacturing in the transition from development into production. Provide technical support as required during manufacturing, for example by resolving design related issues or by identifying replacement or substitute components. Specify phases of tests, investigation, or analysis. Write ECOs.
  • Prepare reports of and write technical instructions for field tests or installations as required.
  • Assist in troubleshooting customer application problems.
  • Conduct field testing and research for new applications as required.
  • Contribute to engineering project planning and tracking. Plan specific tasks for new projects. Estimate effort for and duration of specific tasks on a program. Assist in preparing cost estimates on proposed design products. Evaluate project feasibility and risks.
