Job Description Summary
Systems engineering is a cross-functional engineering discipline centered on an approach, mindset, and process. All activities that consider both the business and the technical needs of the customers with the goal of providing a quality product that meets the users needs. The discipline that executes a robust process of design, creation, and optimization of systems, consisting of identification and quantification of system requirements, creation of alternate system design concepts, performance of design trade studies, selection and implementation of the best designs and verification that the design is properly integrated and executed. Process that proceeds from concept to production to operation.
Responsible for departmental operations planning/execution or is focused on execution of professional activities within a technical discipline. Functions with some autonomy but guided by established policies or review of end results.
The job allows modification of procedures and practices covering work as long as the end results meet standards of acceptability (quality, volume, timeliness etc.).
Roles and Responsibilities
Facilitates the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including work such as: soil mechanics, seismic analysis, and foundations for GE supplied equipment. Specifies with a built to function the design and the the requirements for all under ground and above ground civil works, and specifies the civil contractor for the same (leveling, foundations, slabs, etc.). Also to include CW cost estimating, constructability assessments and sequencing, understanding of local civil codes and standards, and the appliation of structural steel, civil, and geotechnical engineering principals. Conducts analysis and design of industrial structures that support or resist static and dynamic loads. Structural engineering typically includes design and analysis of structures composed of materials such as Structural Steel, Reinforced Concrete, Prestressed Concrete, Wood Framing and Masonry to account for code required loads and load combinations to ensure adequacy of the structure against failure.
Includes direct people management responsibility including staffing and performance development. Utilizes in-depth knowledge of a technical discipline and analytical thinking and technical experience to execute policy/strategy.
Has knowledge of best practices and how own area integrates with others; is aware of the competition and the factors that differentiate them in the market
Uses some judgment and has some ability to propose different solutions outside of set parameters to address more complicated manufacturing processes with technical variety and/or interdependent production cycles. Uses technical experience and analytical thinking. Uses multiple internal and limited external sources outside of own teams to arrive at decisions.
Acts as a resource for colleagues with less experience. May lead small projects with low risks and resource requirements. Explains information; developing skills to bring team members to consensus around topics within field. Conveys performance expectations and may handle sensitive issues.
