  • Investigates product problems, understands causal mechanisms, recommends appropriate action, owns problem resolution and documents results with guidance from more experienced team members

  • Main focus will include working in business processes of PPT, VPI or CPS and executing technical processes such as ESW, iDFMEA, FIRG while using tools such as 7-step problem solving, design review checklist and other specialized tools required to support the processes and enable high quality decision making

  • Obtains input from stakeholders such as technical managers, project leaders, other product and manufacturing engineers and supplier partners to deliver information and recommendations that lead to quality product decisions

  • Applies academic knowledge and existing experience to take action and make decisions that progress projects forward without sacrificing project quality expectations. Examples of these decisions include day to day project details, analysis or test work instruction details, coordination across discipline areas, etc. that are necessary to make quality progress

  • Owns problem resolution for moderately complex components, products, systems, subsystems or services with a greater degree of technical complexity and ambiguity over the entry level engineer level and with greater accountability to the project team

  • Provides independent execution of established work processes and systems, while still developing technology or product knowledge; engages with the improvement of systems and processes

  • Involves minimal direct management of people, but could involve the coordination and direction of work amongst technicians and/or temporary student employees

  • Contributes effectively toward team goals, exhibits influence within a work group and continues to develop proficiency in the competency areas critical to success in the role


  • 在经验更加丰富的团队成员指导下,调查产品问题、了解因果机制、提出适当措施、制定问题解决方案并记录结果

  • 主要重点将包括执行 PPT、VPI 或 CPS 的业务流程,以及执行 ESW、iDFMEA、FIRG 等技术流程,同时使用问题解决七步法、设计审核清单等工具以及支持相关流程及实现优质决策所需的其他专业工具

  • 征求技术经理、项目主管、其他产品及制造工程师及供应商合作伙伴等利益相关者的意见,以提供促成优质产品决策的信息及建议

  • 运用学术知识和现有经验来采取行动并制定决策,推进项目进程,而不会牺牲项目质量期望。该等决策示例包括对于提高质量乃属必要的日常项目细节、分析或测试工作指导细节、跨专业领域协调等

  • 为技术复杂度及入门级工程师水平不明确性较高且由项目团队承担较大责任的相对复杂组件、产品、系统、子系统或服务制定问题解决方案

  • 独立执行既定工作流程和系统,同时发展技术或产品知识;参与系统和流程改进。

  • 参与基本的直接人事管理,但能够协调和指导技术员和/或学生临时员工的工作

  • 有效促进团队目标、在工作组内产生影响并持续提高对在职位取得成功至关重要的能力

Product Problem Solving - Solves product problems using a process that protects the customer; determines the assignable cause; implements robust, data-based solutions; and identifies the systemic root causes and recommended actions to prevent problem reoccurrence.

System Capability Engineering - Identifies system capability and risks through analysis or experimental testing of the system, sub-system, or super system in the context of its environment; negotiates and verifies requirements against capability to guide project scope and system development accordingly; assesses legacy system versus proposed new system solution capabilities and makes decisions as to how best to achieve system capability with consideration of stakeholder trade-offs.

Systems Thinking - Defines the system of interest by drawing the boundaries, identifying its context within its environment, its interfaces, and that it has a lifecycle to aid in planning the problem statement, scope and deliverables ; analyzes linkages and interactions between elements that comprise the system of interest by using appropriate methods, models and integration of outcomes to understand the system, predict its behavior and devise modifications to it in order to produce the desired effects.

Product Failure Mode Avoidance - Mitigates potential product failure modes, by identifying interfaces, functions, functional requirements, interactions, control factors, noise factors, and prioritized potential failure modes and potential failure causes for the system of interest to effectively and efficiently improve the reliability of Cummins’ products.

Product Verification and Validation Management - Coordinates the development of design verification and system validation plans from a variety of inputs to identify failure modes while managing risk and relative priority; evaluates analytical and experimental test results following engineering principles to verify that products meet internal technical requirements and to validate that design solutions meet customer needs; produces recommendations with technical documentation to support product decisions.

Product Development Execution, Monitoring and Control - Plans, schedules, coordinates and executes the activities involved in developing a product to a respectively aligned hierarchy of requirements and technical profiles; monitors and communicates across functional boundaries to meet project resource and quality expectations; ensures product capability meets or exceeds expectations and takes mitigating actions when project risks are higher than expected; understands the full product life cycle process and stakeholders.

Technical Documentation - Documents information based on knowledge gained as part of technical function activities; communicates to stakeholders with the goal of enabling improved technical productivity and effective knowledge transfer to others who were not originally part of the initial learning.

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.

Decision quality - Making good and timely decisions that keep the organization moving forward.

Drives results - Consistently achieving results, even under tough circumstances.

Collaborates - Building partnerships and working collaboratively with others to meet shared objectives.

Communicates effectively - Developing and delivering multi-mode communications that convey a clear understanding of the unique needs of different audiences.

Self-development - Actively seeking new ways to grow and be challenged using both formal and informal development channels.

Education, Licenses, Certifications

College, university, or equivalent Bachelor's degree in Engineering or other relevant technical disciplines is required.


Minimal work experience required. Preferred candidates would have relevant experience working in an temporary student employment, intern, co-op, or other extracurricular team activities.
