Model Base Design Development Engineer

Objective
• Development / improvement and use of simulation tool based on MatLab/Simulink for performances and functionalities prediction of WET home appliances
• Analysis of mechanical, thermodynamic, fluid-dynamic phenomena that have impact on appliances behavior
• Support to different activities from theoretical calculation to experimental analysis definition (DOE) for improving internal knowledge of performances dependence on different design/setting/parameters)
• Finding formula in technical literature suitable for describing phenomena in WET appliances
• Support to design of the appliances and selection of components through predictive simulation analysis

Key responsibilities
• Develop, calibrate, validate simulation models of WET appliances simulating all the aspects that have impacts on performances and functionalities and perform simulation analysis by
o Implementing codes in Matlab/Simulink directly and managing external partners 
o Select the proper mechanics, thermodynamics and fluido-dynamics laws for describes physical phenomena 
o supporting and addressing experimental activities to achieve experimental data
o scouting technical literature applied to similar fields
• To support Laboratories (internal ones and external partners) on test methodology definition and data post-processing of new solutions
• To support design of the appliances by means of predictive simulation analysis
• Ensure that project timing, costs and performances are delivered according to specification and technology roadmap strategy at global level
• To independently manage development activities
