Create requirements for implementing these algorithms into transmission software

Perform verification and validation of these algorithms using SIL/HIL and in vehicle.

Establish and execute design verification plans for control logic development

Conduct design failure mode effects analysis for control logic changes

Support transmission hardware improvements, cost reduction efforts through control logic development and other quality initiatives

Support transmission calibration efforts by contributing to calibration guide and base calibration development

Support calibration verification and release transmission calibrations for production

Basic Qualifications:

Bachelor of Science in Computer, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering

Minimum 3-5 year of engineering experience, however, an advanced degree and/or academic research in a related field may count towards experience requirement

Basic understanding of powertrain functions (transmission, engines, driveline)

Good overall knowledge of transmission control systems related to drive strategy, shift scheduling, shift-by-wire, signal filtering and shift lever analysis

Experience in standard development tools, modeling/simulation/development/testing/validation

Experience in standard productivity tools (MS Office Suite)

Preferred Qualifications:

Advanced/Master degree in Engineering

Deep understanding of powertrain functions and Controls Algorithms focused on conventional combustion engines interfaces with transmissions

Minimum of 5-10 years of powertrain development experience

Subject matter expertise in transmission controls or specialist in one or more of the following areas:

o Shift Scheduling

o TCC Release/Lock-Up

Knowledge of "C" programming language utilized in embedded code as well as MATLAB/SimuLink, Amesim, Borland/MSDN, Lauterbach

Working experience with automotive development/calibration tools (ETAS, INCA, CDA, Vector, DOORS)
