  • Responsibilities

    • Responsible to develop optimal part datum locating schemes using specialized software that combines 3D tolerance stack software, finite element analysis (FEA), and optimization techniques.
    • This position will be working closely with design engineering, stamping feasibility and dimensional engineering cross functional teams.
    • In the design phase, the Analyst proposes datum schemes that will optimize the repeatability of part locating in the gage or tool.
    • In the launch phase, the analyst applies rigorous analytical techniques to troubleshoot root cause of repeatability problems including part quality.
    • In addition, the Dimensional Analyst will use the specialized software to predict the influence of locating schemes, orientation, assembly sequence, datum coordination, gravity and joining techniques on complex flexible assemblies as well as use rigorous modeling techniques to develop insights to improve assembly behavior by design and in the plant.
    • The ideal candidate drives the insights into part design and launch troubleshooting and will research and develop improvements to the analysis process and modeling tools.
    • This position works with outside software suppliers and academic research teams to advance the theoretical basis and the practical applications of the analysis techniques.
    • The Analyst will expand the practical applications in the plant setting.


    • Bachelor's degree in engineering or other technical discipline ANY of the following experience or skills:
      • Understanding of fundamental dimensional control principles (datum coordination, tolerance stacks, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), slip planes, etc.)
      • Familiarity with 3D tolerance analysis specifically 3DCS or Variation
      • Simulation Analysis (VSA)
      • Familiarity with FEA – ie: Abaqus
      • Understanding of basic modeling techniques (incremental development, validation, debugging, interpretation and presentation of results)
      • Dimensional problem solving experience in a plant setting


    Preferred Qualifications


    • Advanced degree in Systems, Mechanical, or Manufacturing engineering.
    • 2+ years experience in dimensional engineering in a plant setting
    • 2+ years experience in 3DCS modeling
    • Academic or hands-on experience with Abaqus or ANSA
    • Academic or hands-on years in computer modeling




    • May be required to drive a company vehicle – valid drivers license & clean driving record required
    • Will be required to travel – domestic & international (20%)
