ode and Effects Analyses are advantageous, but not essential as on the job training will be provided. What is important is that you thrive on solving technical problems in collaboration with other engineering functions, have a systematic analytical mindset and are able to see engineering problems from multiple perspectives.
The Role & Essential Responsibilities
As a Through Life Engineer, you would be responsible for providing RM&T support to programmes across the whole product lifecycle. This involves working closely with the product development to:
Estimate how reliable a system will be in its intended use environment and document the results in the reliability assessment report.
Predict the ways in which a system will fail and analyse the effects of those failures on system operation and document the results of that analysis in the Failure Mode and Effects Analysis report.
Assess the effectiveness of built in test functionality to understand the likelihood a failure being detected by the system and isolated to the system.
Determine if the maintainability of a system supports aircraft maintenance requirements.
Create reliability test plans and procedures and document the results of testing performed.
Qualifications / Requirements
An appropriate degree in Engineering, Mathematics, Electronics, Applied Physics or similar subject, or equivalent experience.
You will be required to work in a team environment alongside peers in other engineering disciplines, so verbal communication and collaboration skills are essential to make you (& the team) most effective.
Being able to perform detailed and logical analyses, and documenting the results in a clear and concise way is key, so written communication and attention to detail is important.
Experience of the systems design lifecycle will help you in activities such as capturing, understanding and documenting the customer's system through life requirements. Good appreciation of the principles of Design for Reliability will aid in the generation of TLE assessments such as Reliability Predictions, FMEAs and maintainability analyses. Strong understanding of what makes a reliable and usable product is essential and strong communication and influencing skills are advantageous in this role.
Previous experience in an aviation, automotive or similar embedded systems development environment is helpful as it demonstrates understanding of working to rigorous industry mandated development standards; for example, ARP4754A and ARP4761. This shows a knowledge of working with complex system designs, for implementation in hardware and software.
Previous experience or knowledge of how the Reliability and Safety engineering activities interact.
