When the global aerospace community looks for ideas and solutions to its biggest challenges, they turn to the people of UTC Aerospace Systems. We design, invent and deliver the most advanced and diverse range of aerospace systems on the market. We are inventors. We are manufacturers. We work in space exploration, commercial air travel, defense and rescue applications. Always learning and pushing the boundaries, we are an undisputed industry leader that continually sets the bar higher and higher. Come soar with us.
Today, the fully integrated landing systems we design, test and manufacture help millions of passengers reach their destinations safely. But we aren’t satisfied with today’s success. Our global Landing Systems team is committed to continuous improvement – we work hard to make our solutions lighter-weight, stronger and more technically advanced, so that plane travel can be safer, more affordable and more sustainable in the years to come. We are looking for the best and brightest to fly and land with us!
At UTC Aerospace Systems, we believe that innovation starts with our people. That’s why we have over 8,000 engineers located in 70 sites around the globe, across 14 countries. But our Engineering organization is not just a collection of individual businesses. We use our size and expertise to create system solutions that work across all our product lines.
Our industry-leading experts are setting the standards for the aerospace industry and paving the way for the future. But as new challenges present themselves, we need fresh, creative and motivated minds to overcome these hurdles, help us break barriers and achieve new levels of innovation. Do you have what it takes to join a global, diverse organization that doesn’t shy away from big opportunities? If so, we invite you to join our Engineering ranks and create the next generation of aerospace technologies. Together, we will move the world forward!
Evaluate nonconforming material for acceptability and flightworthiness (Scrap, Rework, Repair and Use as is). The nonconforming conditions will vary significantly by material, type, severity and stage in which they are discovered. Common examples of nonconformance are outlined below.
* Out of tolerance, excessive taper and/or out-of-round outer diameters and inner diameters
* Undersized lug thicknesses, slot dimensions, lug walls, etc.
* Mis-located features, true position deviations, lack of parallelism, excessive TIR, poor symmetry and other geometric deviations relating to common Landing Gear components.
* Thread non-conformances (discrepant Major Diameters, Minor Diameters, Pitch Diameters, Root Radius), spline non-conformances, both of which could be detected before or after plating.
* Undersized wall thicknesses in structurally and functionally critical areas of the Shock Strut.
* Non-cleanup during final machining or processing, insufficient removal of forging decarburization layer resulting from discrepant raw material or improper setup prior to machining.
* Surface defects such as corrosion, pitting, tool marks, tool lines, excessive microfinish, false cuts and gouges, handling damage, dropped incident hardware
* Assembly rejections, including parts not fitting properly and other non-conformances found on finished and painted parts.
* Specification violations related to NDT processes, welding, heat treatment, shot peening, electroplating, grinding of coatings, embrittlement bake, stress relief, incorrect or expired coatings, paints, sealants, etc.
* Discrepant coatings, including discrepant thicknesses, poor adhesion and peeling, excessive plating runout, blistering, pitting, flaking, delamination, etc.
* Improper/incorrect part identification or loss of material traceability.
* Rejections during non-destructive testing (MPI/FPI indications, temper indications, Barkhausen rejections, etc.)
* Facilitate the resolution of design issues discovered at the last minute such as during assembly on a new program, that piece or pieces already in production are addressed via the MRB/QN process (in coordination with outside groups or the customer) until an Engineering change spelling out disposition of existing stock is released, to best support production efforts and Customer needs.
* During evaluation of nonconforming product, determine if there is an impact to:
* Functional interfaces (whether it is a UTAS interface or Customer interface), consider potential effect on kinematics, ability to assemble properly, interchangeability with mating part at all adverse tolerances, maintenance or ground support impact, potential leakage or reduced performance.
* Structural integrity of the part. A structural analysis (static and fatigue) must be performed unless there is already precedence which thoroughly overlaps the problem at hand, or if the issue is minor and proper rationale exists to forego a formal analysis.
* Metallurgical concerns such as reduced mechanical properties, excessive decarburization, possible hydrogen embrittlement, weld-lot related issues, reduced corrosion and wear resistance.
* Repair and Overhaul capability. The full analytical re-bush allowance must still be available on a production part. This amount varies by Program.
* Weight, Appearance, Aerodynamics, Interchangeability, Maintainability
* In some cases, a discovered non-conformance such as a machining non-cleanup or an undersized wall thickness can be a symptom of a larger problem such as excessive heat treat distortion or improper qualification during earlier machining of the part. The MRB Engineering should require other areas of the part that can also be affected to be checked and evaluated against the drawing whenever this is suspect.
* When required, coordinate discrepancies and subsequent repair disposition with outside groups as determined by the MRB Engineer. Depending on the program, these additional engineering support functions can be located at various locations around the world. Some of the functions include Material Process and Technologies (M&PT), Design Engineering, Stress Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Program Quality and Supplier Quality Engineering and Customer Engineering focals (the amount of customer interface required also depends on the MRB delegation for that program and/or severity of nonconformance)
* If part is evaluated and deemed to be not acceptable as is, determine if and how the part can be repaired, and provide concise and thorough instructions to restore the part to an acceptable condition. Instructions to include:
* Required machining, blending, plating, inspection, repair bushing steps
* Required non-destructive testing (NDT)
* Eventual re-processing of the part such as shot peen, plating or brush plating and so forth to restore the part back to the point where the initial rejection was discovered and documented
* Whenever possible, disposition to include rework and inspection to be done at existing standard process steps, such as hone or machine operations, inspection operations, file & burr, NDT or plating operations, to reduce any added setup time and part travel.
* Disposition to provide the lowest risk and least invasive repair to be done to the part while maintaining customer requirements and part integrity.
* The disposition should include complete instructions for repair and inspection instructions with the intention that it can be completely carried out without further MRB Engineering support.
Qualification: Minimum Qualifications:
* Detailed Oriented and ability to thrive in a fast-paced demanding Production environment
* Good communication skills and the ability to work well in a team environment
* Demonstrated mechanical aptitude
* Expert knowledge of GD&T – being able to read engineering drawings (2D and 3D)
* Good understanding of computing tools and programs including the use of Microsoft Office, Windows 7
* Proficient with CATIA V5
* Familiar with PLM and ERP systems such as SAP, Matrix, SmarTeam, Citrix
* Critical traits including: high attention to detail, high energy, ability to effectively navigate in a high-paced production environment, decisiveness, well-organized, sense of urgency, positive attitude, long-term interest in Engineering disciplines and an unwavering commitment to honest and ethical behavior.
* Highly preferred (5+) years of MRB experience in an Aerospace manufacturing environment
* Bachelor's degree or equivalent in mechanical / aerospace engineering or related discipline
Nothing matters more to UTC Aerospace Systems than our strong ethical and safety commitments. As such, all U.S. positions require a background check, which may include a drug screen.
