Powertrain Design Release Engineer- 634337
Description:Design and develop Powertrain Components using established best practice principles. The components will be created using quality methodologies such as CAE, System Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (DFMEA), and Design Validation Plans (DVP&R). Candidate will coordinate CAE, design, prototyping, and testing of components and the documentation of those activities. Resolve manufacturing plant, assembly plant, and field issues as necessary. Participate in the team and subgroups in reviewing and updating corporate design best practices, conducting benchmarking exercises and reviewing and critiquing Corporate Designs.
This position is for a Release Engineer who will be responsible for the Core Engine powercell components on one major engine family, including components such as pistons, piston rings, piston pin, connecting rod and rod fasteners. This is a key position within our Core Engine Engineering team. Activities include developing components, managing and directing changes, facilitating continuous improvement in oil economy, and carrying out engineering root cause analyses and corrective actions when necessary.
The Design and Release Engineer will work closely with designers and CAE groups to optimize designs. They will use the DFMEA to identify and rate risks and build a robust DVP&R to ensure testing is completed to reach reliability goals. They will initiate source packages, hold APQP meetings during the development phase, order prototype parts, carry out and monitor DV and PV testing, and participate in post-test reviews including failure analysis. The Design and Release engineer is involved in all aspects of product launch including component, system, engine, and vehicle testing, manufacturing reviews, development of service procedures, production launch, change management, and continuous improvement.
