What to expect

The Dimensional Systems integration team is a new initiative to improve Geometric integration of the product through engineering, prototype and launch. The successful candidate will take ownership of the dimensional requirements for a vehicle sub-system (Front end, Rear end) and lead the PE and ME teams to successful delivery of those targets. Using an excellent grasp of datum and locator strategy, Geometric tolerancing, APQP/PPAP and FMA tools, Dimensional Variation Analysis and 3D measurement techniques, they will assess and prove the Bill of Design and Bill of Process's compatibility to achieve the Dimensional Targets (such as functional and safety clearances, and visual Gap and Flush targets including Taper and Symmetry).

We are a growing team and significant opportunities for development are available to the right candidate.
