Job Function: Engineering/Technology
Business Segment: Transportation Headquarters
Location(s): United States; Pennsylvania; Erie, Grove City, Western Pennsylvania
The Lead Mechanical Design Engineer produces creative design solutions that meet functional and business requirements. In the role of Lead Mechanical Design Engineer, you will work with engineering, supply chain and other cross-functional teams to deliver complex designs in a fast-paced environment, iterating on designs as needed and owning the CAD geometry through the full design and manufacturing life cycle.
The Lead Mechanical Design Engineer will use their engineering design expertise and creativity to develop and implement designs for Additive Manufacturing processes.
Additive Manufacturing allows for brand new ways to design for improved performance, shortened lead time, and new functionalities. Designing for these new methods requires new engineering skills for design and simulation of parts, including topology optimization, systems thinking, analysis, material selections, as well as design for additive processes. The Lead Mechanical Design Engineer will build upon current engineering skills in the areas of additive manufacturing to fully capture the value and apply it to industrial product lines.
In addition, as the Lead Mechanical Design Engineer, you will:
Create design definition through 3D modeling including tolerance stack-ups to support analysis, manufacturing, assembly, quality and inspection within expected cost, quality and schedule.
Work with engineering and supply chain partners to determine dimensional constraints and geometric tolerances required for proper clearances and fits while maximizing manufacturing producibility
Ensure all interfaces between components are established and agreed upon by Engineering design teams of mating parts and engine systems
Build expertise in applicable areas of additive manufacturing, staying current with industrial developments.
Concurrently manage multiple projects to ensure program cost, quality and schedule requirements are met
Actively participate in short and long-term team, section and/or business goals focused on continuous improvement and simplification
Utilize Lean Six Sigma principles to drive improvements to current business products and processes
Provide technical leadership for team members in the form of training, mentoring, talent development, and work verification
A minimum of 5 years of experience is desired
Strong oral and written communication skills
Strong interpersonal skills, proven leadership skills and a positive energy
Expert knowledge of computer aided design (CAD), preferably in Siemens NX
Proven understanding of computer aided manufacturing (CAM) and manufacturing processes
Expert understanding of geometric dimensioning and tolerancing as it relates to individual parts and overall assemblies (ANSI Y14.5)
Effective problem identification and solution skills
Additive design or manufacturing experience a plus, but not required
