Summary of Job Order from: ADV Advanced Technical Services Inc.
Consultant: Brian Small ext 225
This position shall develop and implement a program for collection and interpretation of product reliability metrics for our systems. This position will play a key role in identifying gaps in design reliability vs actual reliability from systems, sub-systems, to component level. This person shall be our expert on product reliability (dependability) issues.
Overall Responsibilities and Key Accountabilities
Reporting to the Director of Quality this individual shall provide Reliability Engineering support to the organization. Key responsibilities include developing product reliability dashboard metrics (systems, sub-systems, components). Report reliability gaps and associated business risks in the form of formal technical reports. Must be able to help design, analyze, and report on ALT & HALT (tests) on SOFC systems/sub-systems. Develop mathematical models to identify units, batches or processes posing excessive failure risks. Perform Risk Analysis (FMEA, FMECA, FTA) processes and report gaps to appropriate groups. Perform Fault Tree analysis to identify root cause mechanism of failure. Monitor and communicate key reliability performance indicators (MTBF). Identify corrective actions based on trending of reliability measures and detailed discussions with engineering and production teams. Determine units and/or batches requiring testing, and specifies minimum number of samples to obtain statistically valid data.
Knowledge, Skills and Experience Required
Degree in Engineering, Statistics or Physical Sciences.
5-10 years of direct industry experience.
A solid knowledge of probability and statistics.
Strong credentials in both reliability testing and failure analysis.
Strong computer skills to support mathematical modeling (Weibull prediction), and RAM/RCM/MTBF analysis applications.
Demonstrated evidence in application of Failure Analysis tools like FMEA/FMECA, FTA, ETA, ALT, and HALT.
Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) experience / training is an asset but not necessary.
Also, ASQ certification as a CRE is desirable but not necessary.
Industry: Power sources
Products: thermoelectric generators, fuel cells
