BAE Systems Maritime – Naval Ships has recently created an embedded Systems Engineering and Integration team within the overall Type 26 Global Combat Ship Marine Systems team.|
Possesses in-depth knowledge of the fundamentals of Model Based Systems Engineering and of Systems Architecting.
The purpose of the Systems Engineering/Integration team is to provide embedded capability alongside the Marine Systems design engineers to ensure the successful integration and derisking of Type 26’s Power & Propulsion, HVAC, Auxiliary, Electrical Distribution and Platform Management Systems.
The role will work across the Systems Engineering team as well as the system design teams to enable a comprehensive understanding of Marine Systems end-to-end functionality to be developed and linked to the operational and physical requirements. The role will provide specialist expertise in the use and deployment of MoDAF viewpoints – linking all aspects of the engineering design process with an appropriate Engineering Data Framework.
Top 6 Major Tasks and Activities:
1. Plan, manage and implement the development of an appropriate functional architecture and Engineering Data Framework for Marine Systems in conjunction with other SE techniques (such as dynamic modelling, V&E etc.) and other stakeholders.
2. Develop, tailor and promulgate the policies, principles, and processes that will be adhered to in the development of the Marine Systems architecture and EDF.
3. Identify and manage resource and technology requirements for the development of the Marine Systems architecture, which includes the management of any resource/technology constraints – lead the delivery of work packages as required.
4. Liaise with other SE team members to capture, analyse and map requirements in an architecting environment to support requirements analysis and traceability of solution elements.
5. Prioritise architecting tasking to ensure that Architecture Products are developed in an appropriate sequence to support the higher level integration plan.
6. Lead and chair architecture review meetings with customers/stakeholders/system designers including individuals unfamiliar with the architecting process.
Additional Key Accountabilities:
(Describe the roles operational responsibility in terms of volume/quality/timeliness/decision making/tactical/strategic
1. Keep up to date in relevant system architecting technical areas, develop skills and capabilities to be able to provide more effective services (seeking and sharing good practice and knowledge to continuously improve practices), and supply technical support and expertise to others as required.
2. Provide help and direction to less experienced team members to support both their effective working and their development.
3. Manage assigned budgets and lead, develop and motivate assigned employees to ensure they are aware of and capable of delivering their accountabilities.
4. Make engineering decisions within own sphere of responsibility and delegated authority.
5. Except in extraordinary circumstances, execution of the work will be achieved without continual supervision: instead a definition of the task outputs, budget and time-scale constraints will be agreed with the supervisor at the outset.
Key Technical Skills
Possesses in-depth knowledge of the fundamentals of Model Based Systems Engineering and of Systems Architecting,
Is proficient with the use of System Architect and DOORS,
Strong understanding of MoDAF and possessing deep knowledge of the development of MoDAF viewpoints,
Able to perform robust analysis using recognised analytical tools and to make sound judgements based on experience.
Desirably has sufficient breadth of knowledge of warship design and of Marine Systems in particular – but not essential.
Key Functional Skills
Appreciates and can articulate the value of the engineering lifecycle and the relationship to the Lifecycle Management Process. Appreciates that there are technical reviews to ensure product viability.
Appreciates and can articulate the need to ensure that products are acceptably safe and that product and system safety assessments form part of the design process.
Has had some exposure to regulatory and statutory requirements of the product and understands potential liabilities.
Has an appreciation of the requirement that the environmental impact of our activities is sustainable in the long term.
Appreciates the need for a supportability engineering process to sustain the long term viability of the business.
Understands that supportability goes beyond basic design,maintenance and operability requirements.
