Senior Mechanical Development Engineer: Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies
Eaton Cummins Automated Transmission Technologies is a joint venture between Eaton and Cummins, Inc. producing industry-leading medium- and heavy-duty automated transmission products to OEM customers around the globe. Our business thrives with talent from diverse skillsets and backgrounds. Grow your career by joining this exceptional collaboration opportunity that embraces innovative thinking, compelling creativity, and customer-focus.
We are looking for a talented Senior Mechanical Development Engineer to join our team in Galesburg, MI.
In this role, you will make an impact in the following ways:
This applied science, developing leadership position conducts experiments via third party and in-house tools to determine structural performance of components and systems.
Creates and manages experimental equipment and methods.
Advises and guides less experienced experimental engineers. 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 as well as vendors and delivers key structural performance parameters like motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power to Design and Product Validation as well as vendors.
Uses systems knowledge and expertise to make decisions in the area of structural testing and data analysis that impact structural performance (motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power) of components and systems.
Creates, manages, improves and applies 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 problem resolution leadership for complex systems with a high degree of ambiguity and often global business impact.
Leads the development and improvement of work processes and systems across function(s) within a global business unit or managing improvement across business units.
Coordinates and directs work of technical project teams, up to and including direct management of small to mid-sized teams.
Operates as the recognized multi-competency specialist or expert in a discipline or product area across a site or global business unit with responsibility for developing local talent (direct or indirect).
Coaches and mentors other engineers, project managers and cross-functional team members.May also include academic or industry collaboration in a competency or discipline area.
To be successful in this role you will need the following:
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.
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.
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.
Manages complexity - Making sense of complex, high quantity, and sometimes contradictory information to effectively solve problems.
Cultivates innovation - Creating new and better ways for the organization to be successful.
Optimizes work processes - Knowing the most effective and efficient processes to get things done, with a focus on continuous improvement.
Manages ambiguity - Operating effectively, even when things are not certain or the way forward is not clear.
Education, Licenses, Certifications
College, university, or equivalent Bachelor's degree in Engineering or other relevant technical disciplines is required. Post-graduate (Master's) degree preferred.
8 years work experience in a relevant discipline area is required with a demonstrated track record of technical problem solving, quality decision making and providing technical direction and leadership to a project team(s). Preferred candidates would have a mix of experience using MS Office tools, Matlab, LabVIEW, nCode, Siemens Test.Lab and Windows operating systems.
