  • Development includestechnical solutions of projects through product lifecycle, including: scoping,designing from concept to final release to production using 3d CAD (Catia V5)software, creating functional prototypes, testing and design verification, andintroduction to the market.
  • Oversee and support the development of componentsand assemblies for different areas of the refrigerator product includingconsumer facing structures: doors, cooling system, cabinet structure, shelves,crispers, and others.
  • Responsible for aligning engineering and marketingobjectives, with those of the business unit to maintain continuous flow ofsustainable, innovative, high quality products.
  • Deliver the development ofcomponents and systems that are patent cleared and ensure that novel technicalinnovations are published and protected to leverage competitive advantage.
  • Workwith direct material cost and capex estimation for project financial viabilityanalysis.
  • Provide support during a project to create the technical productdocumentation following the Electrolux Project Management process, that arerequired for project execution, such as technical specifications, DFA (Designfor Assembly) reports, DFMEA (Design Failure and Effect Analysis), PSRA(Product Safety and Risk Assessment) and other required development tools forrobust engineering solution taking into account automated manufacturing,ergonomic considerations and error proofing.
  • Provide R&D proposals and dataresources for Product Line and Industrial Design Teams to support project scopeand design intent definition.
  • Support Project Management Team to define properproject time plan viability. Follow development workflows, in a check pointproject environment with milestones and specific deliverables.
  • Leadthe preparation and provide documentation for Agency product certification withCSA, UL, AHAM, and others. Work with Systems Engineering and R&D Labs todefine the project test plan and required tests resources.
  • Pilot build (FFP(Fully Functional Prototype), DVT (Design Verification Test), and MVT(Manufacturing Verification Test)) planning and execution to provide units forlab test, field tests, engineering concept validation, and manufacturabilityvalidation.
  • Create engineering documentation or approve documentation createdby others that are required to manufacture quality products as 3D models, partdrawings, assembly drawings and other specifications.
  • Support lab techniciansand engineers to test components, assemblies and products to validate engineeringspecifications.
  • Ensure the timely preparation and execution of engineeringproject documentation such as ECRs (engineering change request) ECNs(engineering change notice), BOMs (bill of materials), DVR (design verificationreport) plans and results, and other documentation.
  • Plan and execute BOMchanges for a proper phase in/ phase out without components shortages orobsolescence. Evaluate and interpret test data and model simulations to supportdecisions for design changes and corrections.
  • Design and work together withIndustrial Engineering to put in production components made by industrialprocesses such as plastic injection molding, automated metal stamping androll-forming, extrusion, thermoforming, and foam injection.
  • Work withcross-functional project teams including Product Line, Design, Purchasing,Logistics and Materials Planning, Quality, and others.
