Mechanical Design Engineer
  • This Senior Mechanical Design Engineer position is responsible for designing and coordinating engineering aspects associated with the combat vehicle chassis and turret structures.
  • Structure Design products include the vehicle hull structures and all structural interfaces (i.e. machining, mounting provisions, welded on brackets, and stiffeners), doors, hatches, access panels, lifting/towing/tie-down provisions, and intake/exhaust grilles.
  • The structures engineer will work with system integrated product team members (IPTas) to document and integrate their mechanical interfaces (mounting provisions) onto the vehicle structure.
  • Provides Engineering Production Support (EPS) for transition of new design to production and resolving issues encountered in the build process.
  • This will be the primary starting role.
    • Investigates root-cause analysis of design issues arising during production and develops the associated change documentation to resolve design issue.
    • Works closely with a team of design engineers and other specialty engineers to resolve design issues that span such areas as structures, ballistics, mechanical, and logistics.
    • Prepares presentations and variance documentation in response to production issues to support vehicle sales.
    • May require daily periods of on-floor support, walking between many locations throughout the day, and climbing in/on the vehicles to assess
    • Perform Trade Studies or Tolerance Stack Analyses in design or investigation support.
    • Analyze and interpret design specifications, drawings, documents, models, and test results to ensure technical designs comply with applicable engineering standards, military specifications, and product requirements
    • Create and edit CAD models in PTC Creo and ensure systems are designed for producibility
    • Design and analyze welded and bolted joints
    • Conduct root cause and impact analysis when issues arise to determine the optimal solution given cost, schedule and priority constraints while factoring in feedback from all key stakeholders
    • Use finite element analysis tools and apply Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T)
SKILLS:  Mechanical Design Engineer
  • Ability to solve moderately complex technical design and development problems that require a professional level of engineering knowledge.
  • Must be organized and have excellent communication skills, demonstrated ability to perform technical presentations.
  • Must be a self-starter that takes ownership of tasks and drives them to completion.
  • Good engineering analytical skills with experience doing root-cause-corrective-action.
