Full-Time Mechanical Systems Technical Specialist – Experimental Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies – 2100023Y

Cummins Inc – Posted by Cummins Inc Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States

Job Description

DESCRIPTION/RESPONSIBILITIES:
• This applied science position conducts experiments via third party and in-house tools to determine structural performance of components and systems. Evaluates experimental equipment and methods and provides improvement recommendations. The results from the experiments are used to determine the validity of the design to meet the customer requirements. Design recommendations are then provided as needed.
• Obtains input and negotiates with Design, Thermal Sciences, Materials and Product Validation and delivers key structural performance parameters like motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power to Design and Product Validation.
• Makes decisions in the area of structural design (materials and their processing as well as geometry) that impact structural performance (motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power) of components and systems
• Applies and improves testing and measurement methods that determine motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power and tools such as vibration analysis, digital signal processing, instrumentation and strain gaging required to support the processes and enable high quality decision making.
• Provides independent leadership of smaller business impact projects or ownership of complex components, products, systems or services with greater elements of ambiguity over the senior or lead engineer level and with full accountability to the project team.
• Delivers independent execution of established and emerging work processes and systems, while still developing technology or product knowledge.
• Leads the development and improvement of work processes and systems across a functional discipline area within a business unit site.
Coordinates and directs work amongst technicians and temporary student employees, assists in the transfer of knowledge to lesser experienced engineers through either indirect (scope of influence) or direct management of a small, local group of engineers.
• Provides support and guidance to influence technical direction within a project team and continues to develop proficiency in the competency areas critical to success in the role.
• Operates as a recognized specialist in a discipline or product area within the immediate team.

REQUIRED SKILLS:
Skills
• Applies Principles of Fatigue and Durability – Determines life of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates component temperatures, natural frequencies, mode shapes, displacements, strains/stresses, wear, and fatigue life to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.
• Applies Principles of Noise and Acoustics – Determines the acoustic behavior of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates both air and structure borne noise, sound power levels, sound quality, flexible body motion, and natural frequencies to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.
• Applies Principles of Dynamics and Vibration – Determines motion of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates rigid and flexible body motion, natural frequencies, mode shapes, displacements, velocities, accelerations, friction, and wear to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.
• Applies Principles of Statistical Methods – Analyzes technical data using descriptive statistics, probability distributions, graphical analysis, and statistical inference (population and sample, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing); models relationships between response and independent variables using analysis of variance, regression, and design of experiments to make rigorous, data-based decisions.
• Product Function Test System Design – Interprets test equipment specifications from test standards or lab customer requirements; selects and integrates appropriate equipment, instrumentation and software to control boundary conditions and collect measurement data; assesses capability of the lab equipment against the requirements and support infrastructure.
• Function Based Product Testing of “X” – Selects appropriate equipment and techniques to operate the product and record operational data in a hardware or software based testing environment most often required as part of a product verification or validation plan; evaluates quality and validity of measurement data; analyzes test results using accepted standards to characterize product capabilities in alignment with the requirements of the engineer responsible for making product decisions.
• Decision quality – Making good and timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward.
• Drives results – Consistently achieving results, even under tough circumstances.
• Communicates effectively – Developing and delivering multi-mode communications that convey a clear understanding of the unique needs of different audiences.
• Builds networks – Effectively building formal and informal relationship networks inside and outside the organization.
• Resourcefulness – Securing and deploying resources effectively and efficiently.
• Manages complexity – Making sense of complex, high quantity, and sometimes contradictory information to effectively solve problems.

Education, Licenses, Certifications
• College, university, or equivalent Bachelor’s degree in Engineering or other relevant technical disciplines is required. Post-graduate (Master’s) degree relevant to this discipline area may be required for select roles.
• This position may require licensing for compliance with export controls or sanctions regulations.

Experience
Prior Senior or Lead Engineer equivalent work experience in a relevant discipline area is required with a demonstrated track record of technical problem solving and quality decision making. Preferred candidates would have a mix of experience using MS Office tools, Matlab, LabVIEW, nCode, Siemens Test.Lab and Windows operating systems.
