Principle Tasks:


Use service knowledge to understand the product's degradation, failure mechanisms and the associated in-service disruption. Where applicable, develop and deploy models to characterize those using deterministic or probabilistic techniques. Promote and embed a culture of proactivity to minimize in-service reliability issues. Lead and conduct the assessment of new and derivative design solutions, product operation and maintenance practices to evaluate their impact on product Reliability. Negotiate, prioritize and manage reliability enhancement test campaigns (incl. HALT) in the contest of broader units development plan. Assess test procedures, facilities, schedules and test results to minimize the risk of in-service disruption. Extract actionable insights from the analyses and testing to generate improvement proposals in order to influence the product's design, its development and its in-service management. Coordinate with customers, suppliers, regulatory authority, maintenance facilities and internal stakeholders on reliability, maturity, engine health monitoring and life cycle cost matters Drive integration with other Life Cycle Engineering disciplines (Engine Health Monitoring, Life Cycle Analysis, Design for Services) to enhance customer satisfaction. Provide mentoring, expert guidance and leadership to engineers in the same technical discipline or to related multi-disciplinary teams. Identify (both inside and outside the company) new approaches and techniques that enhance the efficiency and business impact of the discipline and capitalize on these opportunities to advance the state-of-the-art.
