Lead Systems Engineer (Turbine)
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Join a team that designs, develops, and integrates highly complex systems for APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) gas turbine engines. You will be integral in creating system solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers. You will have ownership for systems and components at every aspect of the systems life cycle, from the front end of business development through product end of life. You will work across disciplines within the APU Control Systems department, part of the Engines & Power Systems business, to drive growth and reach critical business milestones.
We need gas turbine engine Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) development technical leaders. Ability to lead other engineers and drive qualification programs. Requires knowledge in Quality procedures, reports, quality by analysis and similarity reports, etc.
In this role you will be responsible for all aspects of controls engineering of the APU control systems components or APU line replaceable units (LRUs) for a program. This includes design aspects, integration into control system and application, test planning & execution, test setup & unit conformity, test data management and reduction. This role requires leading a team of engineers with technical direction along with high quality document reviews that result in documents (QTPs, QTRs) that adhere to a template and quality standard prior to chief and TSO specialist reviews.
Responsibilities also include planning out design and qualification effort, defining and managing deadlines/milestones, coordinating with team leads and project engineers on status, and timely escalations when effort is off-track, or scope is added. In this role, the perfect candidate will own the product and qual through all aspects of the project – and are ultimately responsible for execution and milestone fidelity.
We are seeking experienced engineers with product development and systems integration of Aerospace products such as sensors, effectors, and control system components used on safety critical systems including, but not limited to, gas turbine engines. This would include electrical, electromechanical, fuel, hydraulic, and/or actuation systems. Responsibilities include but are not limited to the following areas:
• Design & Integration
o Responsible for approved source list drawings, or build to print drawings – ensure supplier drawing and/or part are compliant with Honeywell drawing and governing requirements
o Responsible to reconcile LRU requirements with system level or customer requirements
o Responsible for integration of LRU design into larger system and application – must know function of part as well as its contribution to larger engine functions
• Communication / LRU Management
o Responsible for all communication with supplier, customer, and project engineering with respect to LRU development, including reading form management, document releases, test scheduling & conformity, and activity status
o Responsible for participating in planning & scheduling, integrating supplier schedule into program schedule, and establishing LRU program milestones
o Responsible for coordination memo authorship, tracking/log, and responses to suppliers and customers
o Responsible for all elements of source status elevation (supplier qualification) of LRU
• Responsible for knowledge of governing plans for LRU qualification on application
o Responsible for specific test plans & procedures (QTPs) – approving supplier documentation and integrating into Honeywell QTPs & facilitating updates from customer input and ultimate approval
o Responsible for test execution (on-site at supplier if necessary) and data reduction
o Responsible for test setup and unit conformity
o Responsible for generating similarity arguments, analysis, or test reports in support of qualification
