• Creates designs by analyzing product or equipment specifications, performance requirements, and existing manufacturing capabilities. Performs moderately complex design, fabrication, modification, and evaluation of mechanical or electromechanical components, subsystems, and systems by applying engineering principals and established analytical tools. May develop detailed designs by using sketches and descriptive transfer functions provided by others.

• Determines feasibility of designing or modifying new or existing products considering technical and economic factors, available resources, time constraints, and company planning, by performing detailed trade studies, applying analytical methods, and creating solutions which are defined and can be fully implemented.

• Investigates pertinent design factors such as ease of manufacture, availability of materials and equipment, interchangeability, replaceability, strength-weight efficiency, contractual specification requirements, cost-defining recommendations, and change proposals.

• Prepares or directs preparation of product or system layouts, detailed drawings, assembly drawings, and schematics by coordinating with designers or drafters, interpreting customer and functional requirements, or by using computer-aided design tools and following industry and/or military drawing standards. Develops data and may make preliminary layouts, sketches, notes, and documentation in response to customer  proposal requests.

• Reviews drawings and layouts to ensure clarity, completeness, form, fit, function, and conformity to standards, procedures, and specifications.  Identifies design errors, omissions, and other deficiencies, and recommends revisions and improvements to engineers or other designers.

• Conducts analyses and/or tests pertaining to the development of new designs, methods, materials or processes and completes required documentation by applying engineering principles and company standards, and generating reports, procedures, or change proposals.

• Provides technical information which may affect long range plant and product engineering planning by researching manufacturing or processing techniques, materials, properties, and process advantages and limitations.

• Communicates with customers on TTS product capabilities and to clarify customers’ technical requirements. Supports writing technical proposals for customers by reviewing and interpreting specifications and requirements.  Prepares various reports by analyzing and summarizing data.

• Recommends changes to refine and enhance products and processes by applying continuous improvement principles and techniques.
