General Motors System Engineer- Propulsion Coordination System Engineer, Autonomous - ENG0030657 in Milford, Michigan

System Engineer- Propulsion Coordination System Engineer, Autonomous

System engineering is a multidisciplinary organization that has been chartered with the goal of pulling together the highly complex and interconnected system that is the modern day automobile. System engineering transcends the physical nature of any specific design, cutting across traditional engineering disciplines to allow for a customer focused execution of vehicle level features.

The Propulsion Coordination System Engineer will be responsible for defining the system requirements for the propulsion system interface and unique functions for the Autonomous Vehicle, interfacing and working with the SMT technical leads responsible for components to ensure their designs meet the system requirements, leading DFMEAS for the system, and ensuring the system meets the General Motors safety requirements, feature requirements, and industry standards.

One aspect of the position will be to define and verify propulsion system availability throughout the system engineering process for the Autonomous vehicle.

System Engineer Responsibilities:

  • Develops and releases System Technical Specification
  • Ensure system requirements meet Feature and Safety requirements.
  • Participates in feature workgroups to develop and improve customer focused vehicle level features
  • Create System DFMEA
  • Participates in Fault Tree Analysis
  • Collaborate on V&V plan (Mechanical, Electrical, and Controls)
  • Leads the integration and issue resolution of the system through the development cycle.
  • Work with subsystem and component teams to optimize system design
  • Set availability targets, allocate to the subsystems and components, determine feature sensitivity to variation and failure modes, determine mitigation plans to improve performance to targets.
  • Support in the scoping of Advanced Technology Work (ATW) projects

  • Stays abreast of new technology, new processes and methods to predict and improve availability.all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race,color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or protected veteran
