Job title: Lead Installation tooling and process development engineer

Company: General Electric

Job description: The Lead Installation Engineer will be responsible for the technical development of installation capabilities and tools from start to finish: Starting with defining the problem and empathy gathering, through design development, and finally to an on-site field validation, resulting in a completed tool package that can be handed off to regional installation teams. The installation engineering team develops tooling for all turbine subsystems, and therefore covers many different technologies: Scope may include major component lifting equipment which can apply to machine heads, hubs, and other major components, and/or drivetrain-related capabilities such as geared turning drives, alignment equipment, and lifting/rigging

Job Description

Essential Responsibilities

  • Manage tooling development projects through the NPI process from concept through industrialization by executing design, prototyping, development, validation, and final documentation of Installation tooling, processes. Tools may include lift beams, site fixtures, and other specialized tooling, and the associated processes required for installation of wind turbine.
  • Lead a cross-functional core team to define requirements, develop concepts, and create technical specifications to guide the mechanical design of tooling and processes.
  • Engage with and manage suppliers to finalize design and manufacture the proposed technology.
  • Utilize the design process to generate concepts that optimize the end user experience.
