JOB PURPOSE: Candidates will serve as an experienced, individual contributor for engine emissions and performance development projects. Specific assignments are complex in nature and support the performance and emissions development of Perkins engine products to meet Lesser regulated through to Tier 4 & Stage V emissions legislation and customer critical requirements. The engines range from 0.5 to 7.1 litre in capacity and are used in off road machines, industrial, marine and electric power applications. Projects range from support to our current products through to the recently announced family of 2.8 and 3.6 litre Syncro family.|
The department comprises of a mix of technical subject experts through to graduates. The roles on offer supplement the mid- career position of experienced engineer, who can complement the existing permanent roles.
JOB DUTIES: These positions are part of a team of engineers responsible for the performance, emissions and after treatment calibration and validation development of Perkins Diesel engine products. The main responsibilities include engine performance and ratings development work. The positions will be responsible for overseeing and coordinating engine development work, including pre-test planning, detailed specification and writing of testing instructions, reviewing test data to ensure quality and post-test data analysis. A key role will be, but not limited to, the development of electronic engine calibration maps that will be utilized in the engine control software. The candidates could also be involved in supporting engine system simulation, engine after treatment or regeneration strategy development to enable the engine to meet customerâ€™s performance expectations and all emission regulations.
BACKGROUND/EXPERIENCE: Requires an accredited engineering degree or equivalent experience and excellent analytical skills.
Incumbents must have gained +2 years of experience in engine performance, emissions and after treatment development for Diesel engines, although candidates with relevant spark ignition / gasoline engine experience will not be excluded, assuming they can demonstrate fundamental understanding of combustion principles and a strong analytical background. Specific experience with the development of electronically controlled engines is essential with an understanding of the control system requirements. Candidates must have strong technical skills and ability to communicate technical information effectively. Key Responsibilities: Planning and new Product Introduction:
Development of electronic engine calibration maps, working with the engine control software team. or Developing mechanical, pump-line-nozzle fuel systems to define the required specification to meet product deliverables.
Root cause analysis including customer, production and quality issues.
Develop, implement and deliver interim and permanent corrective actions to address any key issues identified.
Work with component specification teams; air system, fuel system, after treatment system and core component.
Work with the system integration team to ensure development meets customer requirements within the defined mechanical and calibration constraints.
Work with and advise the machine integration team to develop market leading products.
Provide coherent test plans and coordinate test schedules.
Work with internal test facility teams to ensure testing and instrumentation requirements are met.
Support project planning cost and timing adherence.
Compilation of project sign-off and technical reports.
