JOB DESCRIPTION

PRODUCT VALIDATION ENGINEER IN CO DURHAM

Location Type Salary
Co Durham Contract Up to 44ph
  • Reference: 009199
  • Contact: Natalie Dass
  • Tel: 0121 230 1070

As Product Validation Engineer, this product focused role verifies and validates the functionality of products across a wide range of customer requirements, across a variety of applications, in various environments. This work plans, tracks, and evaluates results from a wide range of analyses and functional tests to assess product risk and performance. These results are expected to drive quality decisions and proactively resolve product issues before the product reaches the customer.

This is a hybrid role; remote working from home, during test work candidates are expected to be onsite up to 5 days per week.

Product Validation Engineer Role:

You will be assisting in the development of Euro 7 Diesel Engines, writing and executing endurance tests in the onsite test cells. You will be working closely with the design team and the test engineering team.

Responsibilities include writing tests, reviewing test data, ensuring good quality data and fault finding.

Obtains input and negotiates with Design Verification Plan and Report (DVP&R) stakeholders to define technical requirements and delivers an optimised component-based analytical and experimental verification plan to the program or project team.

Makes decisions in the areas of verification and validation that impact product performance, reliability, and durability.

Investigates and addresses potential component concerns or issues, understands causal mechanisms, recommends appropriate action, owns problem resolution and documents results with guidance from more experienced team members.

Applies and supports the improvement of processes such as technical requirements, iDFMEA, Engineering Standard Work (ESW), DVP&R, test planning, and problem solving and tools such as Integrity, Microsoft Power BI, and McParts required to support the processes and enable high quality decision making.

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.

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 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.

Analytical Modelling and Test Integration/Optimization - Develops a physics-based understanding of customer duty cycles using real world collected data representative of the full range of customer usage; compares analytical and experimental results and resolves differences to maintain calibrated analytical models; generates experimental testing plans that deliver optimal analysis and test coverage.

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.

System Requirements Engineering - Uses appropriate methods and tools to translate stakeholder needs into verifiable requirements to which designs are developed; establishes acceptance criteria for the system of interest through analysis, allocation and negotiation; tracks the status of requirements throughout the system lifecycle; assesses the impact of changes to system requirements on project scope, schedule, and resources; creates and maintains information linkages to related artifacts.

Product Interface Management and Integration - Identifies and analyses the interfaces and interactions across system boundaries by specifying the requirements and limits to ensure that the product meets requirements; controls the interactions across the system element boundaries by making sure that they remain within specified limits; integrates system elements by creating an integration plan, including identification of method and timing for each activity to make it easier to find, isolate, diagnose, and correct.

Development and Management of Technical Function Standards and Practices - Creates and modifies standardized work processes, instructions, tasks or tools utilizing new learning and knowledge gained as part of product development, process improvement or other technical development activities; advises stakeholders with the goal of enabling improved technical productivity and effective knowledge transfer to others who were not originally part of the initial learning.

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.

Product Validation Engineer Requirements:

College, university, or equivalent Bachelor`s degree in Engineering or other relevant technical disciplines is required.
2 - 3 years in an equivalent work experience in a relevant discipline area is required along with planning and project management experience.
Prior test experience or component validation experience.
Knowledge of MS Office tools is essential.
Automotive experience is preferred but not essential, from a Design background with a good understanding of validation will also be considered.
Must have good communication skills
PTC Integrity knowledge and AVL Concerto PUMA would be very advantageous.

Applications:

Applications are welcomed from Candidates who possess the relevant skills and experience as detailed in the job description. Recent Graduates who do not have the required level of skills and experience need not apply.

Candidates must be eligible to work in the UK before making an application and it is the responsibility of the applicant to provide evidence of such eligibility.
