• Apply knowledge of airplane structure, metallurgy, electricity, chemistry, mechanics, and physics to develop, evaluate, and implement non-destructive systems and testing techniques.
• Translate engineering requirements into work requirements and tasks.
• Plan, schedule, and lead others to produce technical work responsive to customer needs within allocated budgets.
• Contacts customers, teaming partners, subcontractors, and suppliers to exchange technical data and develop new NDE techniques.
• Manages customer and supplier relationships and participate on teams to develop fundamental approaches used to solve aircraft sustainment issues.
• Create and maintain detailed documents (e.g., equipment specifications, techniques and training).
• Interpret and analyze measurement results (including simulation (e.g., modeling, samples) or laboratory analysis) to verify acceptability of detail parts or assemblies from the requesting organization (e.g., Quality Assurance, Fabrication, Engineering).
• Act as a consultant for NDE results and recommend additional inspection methods for problem resolution.
• Performs engineering drawing reviews to ensure that the correct NDE method is used for product acceptance.
• Supports analysis of failed parts by recommending NDE approaches to determine causes and/or eliminate future failures.
• Develop NDE equipment and systems, including hardware, software and electronics to support engineering requirements.
• Develops training manuals and author NDE techniques and procedures
• Conducts reviews and/or audits of supplier facilities including equipment, processes, NDE results and personnel to ensure that process specifications and quality requirements are met.
