Sr. Systems Engineer – Requirement Functional Definition and Decomposition will
Provide systems engineering support to the Systems Design & Definition Branch (EV72) in the development of approaches and methodologies to be used in the creation of a functional system design tool
Develop an approach for the establishment of processes, methodologies, and a toolset to evolve the traditional Functional Flow Block Diagram (FFBD) approach into one that can be used to create a complete functional design
Generate an integrated system schematic that graphically links functional attributes to system, subsystem, element and component requirements, and design attributes
Evaluate products that can be used to create the toolset, including ones currently in use at MSFC, Off the Shelf (OTS) products, and new products
Develop and document software code, scripts, etc. that could be used for the functional system design tool development
Personnel shall have a Bachelor’s degree or higher in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Software Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics or equivalent from an accredited institution with a minimum of 15 years of experience with functional analysis and allocation, requirement definition and decomposition, and/or Functional Flow Block Diagram (FFBD) tools and processes. Personnel must have experience and expertise in software and model development. Personnel shall be experienced with systems engineering processes and activities used to transform functional, performance, interface, and other requirements into a coherent description of system functions. Personnel will be capable of the following:
Defining the system in functional terms and then decomposing the top-level functions into sub-functions.
Translating higher-level performance requirements into detailed functional and performance design criteria or constraints
Identifying and defining internal and external functional interfaces.
Excellent technical writing and presentation skills are required. Experience and expertise in engineering analysis of mechanical systems is desired. The ideal candidate will have engineering knowledge of NASA space craft and launch vehicle systems. Personnel are required to be self-motivated, team players familiar with working in a dynamic work environment.
