Description: 6 Month Contract with Opportunity for Extension

Define, develop and validate test methods, test procedures and test equipment to support the homologation of new Semi-trailer aerodynamic products and technologies in accordance with our brand values.

Ensure the quality of test results for all assigned test machines and test methods. Also ensure the test equipment and processes meet the department’s objectives (Safety, Machine, Quality, Delivery, Cost, Standard).

Test Development and Execution

• Define and develop test methods that mitigate key product risk and ensure successful homologation of new trailer aerodynamic offerings.

• Conduct ideation and design events to bring resources, experts and teams together in the design, development, prototyping and execution phases to create new test methods, procedures and equipment.

• Define, prepare and lead internal/external validation testing (Corrosion, Durability, Reliability, Environmental) for the final solution.

• Defines solution testing, In-house or through 3rd Party Testing Agencies to guarantee the solution requirements meet the Functional Marketing requirements.

• Plan and execute project reviews of the initiative with the appropriate people (internal/external).

• Ensure test methods are repeatable, conform to safety/ergonomics standards, and are economical

• Maintain documentation and analysis (results) for Aerodynamic Solutions database (CFD, testing), as required.

• Maintain any documentation in the quality system, where the post is implicated.

• Ensure test plans and timing are achieve and to plan. Manage testing timelines.

Testing Analysis and Documentation

• Develop, install and test prototypes (hands on mechanical engineer) following the quality test plan, documenting results (test report) and recommend technical solution development, as required
