Minneapolis, MN, Minnesota
Performs controls design on a variety of equipment including electrically, hydraulically, and pneumatically operated systems. Conducts analysis to translate system requirements into controller performance requirements. Creates, with use of modeling tools, detailed linear and nonlinear dynamic models of the mechanism to be controlled, the sensors employed, and servo drive used to move the mechanism. Performs simulation and linear analysis using models to develop the control algorithm, select sensors and size actuators. Performs hardware in the loop analysis to verify the control models and tuning of control algorithms. Ensures technical outcomes are consistent with established engineering principles and practices and that customer and company technical, system, performance, and quality requirements are met. Creates, plans, and performs complex engineering design, development, analysis, experimentation, test and/or product assurance tasks for a portion of a project or may lead these activities for a small project. Ensures tasks meet cost, quality, schedule, and performance requirements. Applies wide range of engineering design and/or analytical theory, principles, techniques, and practices to a complex portion of a technical project. Applies broad knowledge of the design of organization’s products, technology, systems interactions to solve complex engineering problems which have not been clearly defined and may not have similar precedents available. Develops and writes technical documentation, makes revisions to existing documentation, and provides input to technical papers or presentations. Delivers technical presentations. Performs technical analysis, testing, calculations, and evaluation of results to solve complex engineering problems, using specialized equipment, and/or by creating or using computer programs, models, or simulations. Prepares and presents project technical results, recommendations, and solutions to internal and external customers. Provides input and status to project leaders on technical content, cost, schedule, and workload requirements. Develops and maintains effective relationships with customers to resolve complex technical problems and implement solutions. Provides technical review and guidance to other engineers in area of expertise. Maintains up-to-date knowledge of relevant engineering discipline(s), industry practices, trends, and applications. Advises management on new development and programs. May direct the work of less senior technical personnel. Maintains a safe work environment and ensures compliance with safety objectives and policies and rules. Shares responsibility of self-development with immediate supervisor.
