Your impact will happen in these and other ways:
Utilize industry knowledge of casting and machining practices to provide feasibility assessment and directional estimates of tooling lead times and costs. Utilize industry knowledge to provide technical input on supplier capability and quality systems.
Collaborate with cross functional product team members that represent the end use customer, the OEM, Operations, Quality, and Service to transform requirements into casting solutions.
Collaborates with casting supplier, as well as PM, SCM and Quality to ensure product requirements are achieved at the time of sourcing, throughout the product development cycle, at PPAP, at SOP and over the life of the product.
Assess casting supplier flow simulation results, process inputs, and industry best practices to identify the optimum solutions for product function, process robustness and product cost.
Synchronize the work flow of the design, analysis and supplier team to achieve product goals and timing.
Evaluate analysis results, define design actions and/or DVP actions required to validate analytical results
Author casting performance specification content to clearly define supplier specifications to achieve product requirements.
Creates and manages software and methods.
Advises and guides less experienced simulation engineers. The results from the computer models 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, etc. to Design and Product Validation as well as vendors.
Uses systems knowledge and expertise to make 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, etc.) of components and systems
Creates, manages, improves and applies computer modeling processes that estimate motion, load, natural frequencies, stress, design margin, life, sound power, etc. and tools such as ANSYS, FE-Safe, GT-Suite, and AVL Excite 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.

Skills and Experience Required:
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 Systems Modeling and Analysis - Impacts product design decisions to best meet stakeholder's requirements through the utilization and interpretation of numerical tools and methods that predict the performance of a component or system.
Systems Modeling and Simulation - Identifies representation of a system or system element by using suitable analytical tools and techniques in order to derive knowledge about the real system; defines the strategy for modeling, simulation, and analysis of a system or system element by considering specifics of a given situation or nature of the system of interest in order to derive insights for making quality 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.
