Coordinate and delegate the work to lower level engineers, designers, and support personnel as assigned. Lead design segments as the Lead Mechanical Engineer on engineering efforts responsible for achievement of schedule, fiscal and technical performance objectives.

  3. Direct Fabrication and Test of Hardware. Develop test plans and direct the fabrication of prototypes. Conduct testing of moderately complex systems and resolve design and related manufacturing problems. Coordinate product transition to Operations as required.

  4. Document the Product Development. Generate, review and approve written reports supporting the design, analyses, and test of the product design including drawings, engineering specifications, and other associated documentation. Report on project status and progress measured against specific plans. Prepare design review packages and present data to both internal and external customers.

  5. Implement Continuous Improvement. Implement the Mechanical Design Process in work plans, and adhere to our Quality System. Provide feedback to improve the process, and work to meet engineering objectives. Maintain up-to-date knowledge of developments in the mechanical engineering disciplines. Ensure cost effectiveness and manufacturability of design

  6. Perform Other Duties. Coordinate and direct the work efforts of lower level engineers and support personnel, if assigned. Assignments may include development of new techniques as a result of independent study, materials development and support of proposal efforts. Perform other duties and responsibilities as required.
