Functieomschrijving Design engineer Transmission automotive
The Driveline group within the Chassis department is working on the development and application of Transmission and Axle Components.
Transmissions work closely with suppliers who design the relevant parts for us. Company is responsible for installation in the vehicle and the functional integration of the components with the other systems.
The main constructor knows the gearboxes inside and out. The supplier's basic components are adjusted as necessary to the specification. You make the specification, consult with the supplier and ensure that the gearboxes fit into the vehicle.
The automated gearbox is commonplace today. Mechatronics and its functionalities are therefore an important part of the function.
You study the desired vehicle features and then put them in consultation with the supplier in specifications for the Software. This is then developed by the supplier and subsequently tested by company. Because the transmission parts have interfaces with the engine, the cabin, the air supply, the CAN bus, sensors and the Vehicle ECU, there is a lot of consultation with colleagues in other departments within company.
In the near future, hybrid vehicles will also be used to meet the demand for further consumption savings
In the Projects atmosphere you work on the vehicles of the future. In addition to specifying the components, attention is paid to vehicle functionality, reliability and insurance plans. The installation of the components is developed in CAD and finally released. Six Sigma techniques are the guide.
In the aftercare atmosphere, you are working on solving problems from the field or in production. You become the owner of the subject. You analyze the problem, come up with proposals, organize the risk reduction and finally release. Here too you take care of active input and application of Six Sigma techniques.
Regularized contact with suppliers is part of the job. You are responsible for the speed of the entire process and assuring the quality of the solution in the design. Together with production and / or purchase, you agree to the designs on the manufacturing process with DAF and / or suppliers.
For this challenging job, we are glad to contact candidates who have a technical education at Bachelor level. Knowledge of the automotive sector is a pré. Any experience in a development environment is desirable. You can go through the CAD package Unigraphics. You are persistent, driven and a team player with strong affinity with the transport world. You have ambitions to grow in the DAF organization. Finally, you have a good command of the Dutch, English and German language in word and writing.
