Job description

Be a part of an innovative Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) design team in a World class engineering company.
You will be responsible for designing mechanical assemblies within the integration team to build an APU System designed by several Partners and suppliers. There will be an expectation to meet stringent cost & quality requirements. This team requires innovative and creative thinkers to differentiate the product from our competitors and create value for the customer.

Your main duties will include:

Mechanical integration of subsystems on an APU (gas turbine):

* - Create interface drawings for subsystems And mechanical components
* - Creation and management of a Computer Aided Design (CAD) mock-up, including building the bill of materials of the APU system.
* - Management of mechanical interfaces between subsystems/equipment designed by several partners/suppliers.
* - Mechanical Design and Analysis to support and assist the Manufacturing team including optimization of the APU system assembly, using « 3D Human body » simulation tools.
* - Ensure technical consistency of design (datums, architecture and cuttaway, interfaces, updates).
* - Monitor and track the weight, CoG and moment of inertia calculations with Suppliers/partners.
* - Conduct tolerance stackup studies (hot/cold). Manage stackup of final engine assembly.

Mechanical Integration of an APU system in the aircraft:

* - Optimization of the installation design in the aircraft.
* - Facilitating installation of the APU System by building a CAD Mock-up & Drawings for the customer and uploading to customer CAD system.
* - Management of the physical stack-ups between the aircraft and APU System.
* - Mechanical Design and Analysis to support and assist the Maintainability/Supportability team (Dismantled LRU Mock-Up, Accessibility Analysis, 3D dimensions on interface models/drawings).


* - Develop and optimize the CAD tools and associated design processes (CATIA V5, V6 and 3DExperience)
