Development of finite element analysis (FEA) methodologies for the design of washer and dryer machines components and systems such as spinning drum, suspension, and cabinets.
Use simulation as a tool to improve design robustness, shorten development time and reduce expenses on physical prototypes.
Validation of simulation models through empirical experimentation.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Create and validate new product architectures/modules/ components/systems taking care of its design and development (technical specification, functionality, reliability, manufacturability, safety etc.)
  • Ensure that project timing, investments, cost, quality, and performance are delivered according to specification. 
  • Ensure that new products, concepts, modules developed are in line with the architectures and product strategy at Global level
  • Analysis of technical solutions with suppliers, factory, and other involved functions
  • Identify and support standardization by ensuring that new development fits into the platform and subsystem structure
  • Part and product approval: understand technical tests results to take decision on design development and final approval for series production
  • Support the Regional Product development team in cost and quality improvement activities.

Minimum Qualification
