General: This is a blend between theory and hands-on position. The engineer will apply their skills in Corning’s mid to later innovation stages. There will be a focus on moving impactful process controls technologies from development as well as identify and solve complex later stage (engineering and manufacturing) process related problems.
Scope of Position:
This is an individual position that requires strong technical curiosity, strong desire for technical leadership opportunities, the ability to learn from others and the willingness to share learning experiences Design, develop and implement mid to late-stage process controls solutions for Engineering and Manufacturing processes, concentration on process controls design and implementation. Develop and apply process controls skills to implement controls solutions ranging from PID to non-linear controls, model predictive control, and other classic and non-classic controls schemes Work with process SMEs and apply process data analysis skills to gain fundamental understanding of manufacturing processes Evaluate existing control strategies and propose enhancements Work in multi-disciplined project teams. Utilize industry standard tools Documentation of designs and implementations Generate Invention Disclosures
Day to Day Responsibilities:
Work closely with experienced professionals to design, develop and implement mid to late-stage process controls solutions for manufacturing processes. Facilitate the transfer of new process control technologies into manufacturing Work closely with manufacturing to define appropriate platform for implementing process control solutions Evaluate readiness of process control solutions from R&D Technology/Knowledge transfer from R&D and corporate engineering group to worldwide plants Develop deep process and equipment understanding Conduct design of experiments (DOE) to gather process related data, and identify multi-variant relationships.
Bachelors, Masters or Ph.D. in Electrical, Mechanical or Chemical Engineering with a concentration in Control theory.
Strong understanding of control theory 0-5 years experience in Process Controls design and implementation. Skills to implement solutions on intended hardware (PLCs, PCs, embedded controllers) Understanding of modern controls design and their applications Use of tools like MATLAB to perform data analysis, FFTs, control design, and controls system performance assessment Strong communications skills that span from non-technical to very technical interactions
Strong understanding or a great desire and ability to learn:
Adaptive Controllers Model Predictive Controllers Nonlinear control Advanced frameworks for data and sensor validation, pattern recognition, and fault identification. Database design and data mining / analysis tools Multi-variant analysis (PCA, PLS)
