General Motors AVD Mounts Design Release Engineer - ENG0039235 in Warren, Michigan

  • Creation (engineering) of Mounts solutions for new vehicle programs.
  • Start with a “clean sheet of paper” and engineer system solutions to a detailed and balanced level.
  • Includes significant physical integration (packaging) and functional integration work, as well as performance assessments, negotiating with competing components and requirements
  • Perform competitive benchmarking of performance, cost, mass, etc.
  • Perform detailed investigation of the Health of the Parent (previous program) to make sure all past issues are addressed in new design
  • Daily collaboration with other Chassis Engineers as well as other key areas of the organization (Designer, CAE, Design Studio, Vehicle Architecture, Purchasing, Cost Estimating, Performance Integration, Manufacturing, Service Engineering, other commodities such as Body, Powertrain, Electrical, etc.) to creatively and jointly develop the overall optimal solution for the vehicle.
  • Work with Designer to ensure CAD data in Unigraphics and TeamCenter is updated regularly (some may be done by this engineering candidate, if capable)
  • Development and refinement of the solution imperatives (piece cost, tooling, mass, quality, performance, etc.) of the designs, reporting out to leadership as required.
  • May include some early physical "mock-up" or hardware test work
  • Lead DFSS or other projects to refine customer requirements and design robustness.
  • Support the execution of Subsystem DFMEA
  • Collaboration with the downstream Design Release Engineer to allow them to successfully source and validate the components and systems for production.
  • Collaboration with component technical experts (BFOs) to ensure GM component and system strategy is correctly implemented on new programs.
  • Collaboration with CAE engineers to assess system performance to requirements, and iterate to an optimum design.
  • Creation and leading of detailed technical Peer Reviews to ensure Best Practices and past lessons learned are implemented on new programs.
  • Creation of "readiness assessments" prior to significant program gates, to summarize the status and key issues.
