OPERATIONS - ENGINEERING/PRODUCTION
Powertrain Software Calibration Engineer M/F
1) Function ownership
Be the contact person and owner of assigned software functions. Depending on project needs, the assigned functions can be one or any combination of following features: powertrain HIL, sensors, actuators, networking (CAN/FlexRay/LIN), thermal management, torque monitoring, safety features, torque coordination, starter control, alternator control, trip display.
2) Release testing
Align testing tasks with software release planning. Identify testing needs, define testing goals, create test cases, collect and analyze testing data, document testing results. Provide release recommendation to the management.
Calibrate ECM and CPC control functions to meet requirements. In case no written requirements available, clarify with internal customers or use own engineering judgement. Identify and report function deficiency, follow up until it is completely resolved.
Submit calibration changes and document the changes following the release process.
4) Issue resolution
Receive and own internal or customer reported issues. Decide and schedule testing environments (MIL, HIL, Dynamometer, Vehicle) to reproduce the issue. Identify the root cause, propose algorithm and/or calibration fixes, validate and document the resolution. Request and plan SW releases for all affected vehicle platforms.
5) Requirement specification
Identify and propose new features, create feature requirements, request prototype software, validate and prove new features, request and plan release roll-out to all relevant vehicle platforms. Per project needs, create requirements to document existing control functions.
