  • Define characterisation studies / DOE's for subsystems and analysers to understand error budget using design for six sigma and statistical based techniques
  • Act as the interface between the hardware & software teams to coordinate integration of solutions into the analyser architecture
  • Create detailed functional specifications which enable the wider Engineering team to understand the detailed design of the analyser; including design margins
  • Write bespoke scripts for controlling subsystems within the analyser (State Machine Diagrams, etc.)
  • Driving Investigations, segment, and root cause issues down to component level utilising team
  • Guide and mentor the wider Engineering team on control system best practices

Required for the success of this role:

  • Excellent knowledge of control system engineering in the automation and overall operation of complex electromechanical systems
