For Caterpillar, digital means using technology to extract data from our machines and engines and transform it into valuable recommendations or “insights,” to help customers make better, more informed decisions and help Caterpillar make robust products with the lowest total ownership cost. Our products generate and process large amounts of data from sensors, on-board models, and control algorithms in real-time creating real-world machine usage information. The integrated mechanical and electronic control systems and associated control algorithms and/or embedded controls or software that enable performance improvements for products, and enable machine information, including on-board information systems, that is highly useful for product development and product improvement once analyzed, modeled, aggregated, and mined for actionable insight using product analytics. This position represents the journey level position within Electro Mechanical Control Systems engineering. The key role of a Sr. Electro Mechanical Control Systems Engineer is that of contributor to the planning and delivery of a project.
This position will be accountable for contributing to the concept, development, and design of complex components, systems, subsystems, or processes. This position performs complex analysis work, identifies design problems, and resolves problems. Although this position may be the transition from individual contributor to team leadership, the major focus of the job is on technical delivery. Incumbents may work more directly with different units, suppliers, customers, and/or other teams. This requires the ability to communicate technical information in a concise and accurate manner. Decisions made may affect the project team and its delivery of the project. Decisions may significantly impact on negotiations with suppliers, leveraging new technologies, warranty, costs, sales, and customer perception.
Success factors for the Sr. Electro Mechanical Control Systems Engineer include demonstrating excellent analytical skills and a mastery of control system engineering concepts. Major challenges facing incumbents are meeting goals for cost, reliability, and performance, and managing multiple priorities. This position must keep up-to-date on changing customer needs as the project progresses, stay current with new technology, and provide guidance and direction on the project to less experienced engineers, technologists, and technicians. Incumbents may be expected to bear significant responsibility for completion of a project with major focus on delivery.
Key areas of responsibility encountered in this role may include any or all of the following: 1) perform requirements analysis and decomposition; 2) conduct Failure Mode Effects Analysis; 3) create boundary diagrams and interface specifications; 4) perform needs analysis and initiate ideas; 5) design and promote new control systems and sub processes; 6) perform network analysis; 7) analyze engineering data from engines or machines; 8)evaluate new products or processes or systems; 9) perform integration lab testing; 10) perform product maintenance; 11) keep up to date on new technologies such as Matlab/Simulink, co-simulation, neural networks, adaptive control and self-learning machines, or develop new technologies; 12) communicate technical information to customers, team members, suppliers and other units; and support and advise other engineers, managers, marketing personnel, customers and suppliers. Engineers must manage their own development, continuously learning through experience and staying abreast of technology. Key skills to be developed at this level are failure prediction and management, technology time/cost analysis, spatial design, conceptual design, practical application of theory, knowledge of the NPI process, and communication skills.
Requires a bachelor degree in an accredited Engineering or Computer Science curriculum plus 5 to 11 years of experience in control systems, or an advanced degree in an Engineering or Computer Science curriculum plus 4 to 10 years of experience in control systems.
Incumbents must have demonstrated excellent analytical skills and the ability to perform complex assignments. Requires a self-starter with strong technical leadership skills.
Must have ability to communicate technical information effectively with team members and others in the work group, as well as employees in other units, customers, and suppliers.
