- Analyze and troubleshoot hydraulic systems, generators, and large motors.
- Develop (using CREO Parametric) and interpret engineering drawings of complex parts and systems according to best practices and proper geometric dimensioning and tolerancing.
- Develop solid models of new or existing parts using CREO Parametric and engineering drawings.
- Execute test and troubleshooting procedures based on project requirements, in locations to include test sites, manufacturing facilities, and aboard active and pre-commissioned Navy vessels.
- Lead failure and root cause investigations, developing and presenting recommendations to program leadership and implementing solutions through development of installation procedures.
- Develop responses to requests for engineering information from sources such as manufacturing facilities, contractors, and shipyards.
- Analyze bolted joints and mechanical parts for suitability, considering fatigue and fracture life of equipment.
- Analyze parts requirements or installation parameters that fall outside of specifications and provide recommendations and corrective actions.
- Assist with review and development of maintenance procedures.
- Interpret engineering specifications for:
- Structural materials
- Hardware such as bolts, nuts, and washers
- Environmental testing
