This is an experienced mechanical design position focused on the development of complex components and sub systems of Automated Mechanical Transmissions for the commercial vehicle industry. The incumbent’s primary responsibility is to lead the design of a complex component or sub system for a project, mentor less experienced designers, and develop design guidelines and standards.

Desired Skills/Knowledge:

  • Extensive mechanical component/system design experience in the Automotive or Commercial Vehicle fields (transmission design preferred).

  • Strong understanding of vehicle drivetrain functionality and components

  • Demonstrated expertise in a 3-D modeling software package (PTC Creo 4 preferred)

  • Experience in creation and design checking of 2D detailed drawings

  • Experience with Finite Element Analysis using ANSYS software

Your impact will happen in these and other ways:

This applied technology focused position applies specialized knowledge of engineering principles and design practices to create design concepts and mechanical design specifications considering application, cost, weight, performance, reliability, durability, manufacturing, assembly, and serviceability.

This role effectively communicates the capability of a design concept to meet cross-functional requirements including adherence to engineering standards, and works effectively with other engineering and cross-functional disciplines to support resolution of product issues.

  • Obtains input and leads the negotiation with cross-functional and cross-discipline technical experts and senior-level designers to communicate the component and subsystem design intent through a thorough Design Review package to the Product Preceding Technology, (PPT), Value Package Introduction (VPI), or Value Package Change Request (VPCR) team requiring a such holistic assessment of various design concepts.

  • Leads the design decision making in the areas of component and subsystem design concept selection, concept optimization, and design specifications that impact customers targeted to be served by a given Product Preceding Technology, (PPT), Value Package Introduction (VPI), or Value Package Change Request (VPCR) initiative.

  • Applies processes such as Critical Design Decisions, System Design and Validation Consideration Checklist, Design Review, and tools such as iDFMEA, DVA, GD&T, CREO, and ANSYS Workbench required to enable high quality subsystem-level design decision making and design refinement.

  • Provides independent leadership of smaller business impact projects or ownership of complex components, products, systems or services with greater elements of ambiguity over the senior or lead engineer level and with full accountability to the project team.

Mechanical Design of Mechanical Systems - Acquires and applies an in-depth understanding of mechanical systems through working knowledge that guides a designer’s ability to create innovative and sound design concepts to meet Cummins and customer expectations; designs for requirements of all lifecycle stages by considering the customer requirements in different operating environments to ensure a robust system.

Mechanical Design Specification - Creates complete specifications in the form of solid models, configured engineering bill of materials and detailed drawings that cross-functionally communicate the information required to manufacture and inspect a product per its design intent; considers national, international, industry, and Cummins’ standards that accurately and concisely define the part specification.

Mechanical Design Modeling and Analysis - Creates Computer Aided Design models in accordance with Cummins' standards to represent architectural or product level system design concepts, and to enable completion of various system-level computer analyses such as Dimensional Variation Analysis and Finite Element Analysis.

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.

Product Reliability and Reliability Risk Management - Plans and manages critical reliability activities during new product development by preventing failures before hardware, detecting failures before the customer does, and improving products before production in order to release a reliable and durable product; evaluates key technical and program measures to assess the launch readiness of a new product using prescribed indicators, measures, risk scales and methods of tracking to focus attention on metrics to reduce risk and improve reliability.

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