The individual will support the Space Launch System Discipline Lead Engineer for Production in the execution of his duties by performing activities delegated and assigned from the DLE. The primary role of the DLE (and Alternate, as delegated) is to serve as the designated representative of the Materials and Processes Laboratory Manager to the SLS Chief Engineer for all block configurations of the SLS vehicle. Activities will include systems engineering and integration in addition to a variety of types of materials and processes across all phases of design, development, test, evaluation, production, and operations (vehicle-level, multi-discipline, multi-element, and cross-program). Delegated duties may include participation in task teams, trade studies, and issue resolution teams; change request evaluations; information gathering/integration; and coordination of internal/external collaboration. These duties will inherently entail engagement with all elements of the SLS vehicle via Element Discipline Lead Engineers within Production Discipline, as well as other engineering disciplines via the other Discipline Lead Engineers and their delegates. The Alternate will also occasionally/situationally serve as substitute for the DLE as needed.
Systems Engineering and Integration functions; including reviews/assessments of change proposals and other technical data items relevant to materials, processes, manufacturing, and assembly of complex heavy lift rocket systems. Technical assessment of design and implementation of production methods, sequences, and documentation. Identification of technical, schedule, and cost risks/issues in individual processes and overall process flow, and collaboration to develop and implement solutions.
