The Advanced After Treatment Application Engineer is responsible for investigating after treatment systems (ATS) technology trends and determine system trade-offs to allow selection of system hardware and diagnostics to meet emissions standards (e.g. California LEV III) on future vehicle applications. The Advanced After Treatment Application Engineer will demonstrate proof-of-concept solutions and perform verification testing according to Powertrain functional objectives. Develop test plans, establish goals and timelines, and communicate status of a project to completion. Utilize engine and powertrain dynamometers or vehicle chassis dynamometers to make fundamentally-based, data-driven hardware and calibration decisions.
The Advanced After Treatment Application Engineer will plan and coordinate day-to-day activities of an engine dynamometer or vehicle testing which may include interaction with technicians and support engineers. Analyze, plan, and solve complex system problems as they relate to emissions performance, diagnostics, engine performance, fuel economy, and base engine calibration development. Perform testing and validation of various advanced after treatment system designs. Lead emissions system optimization to reduce cost of compliance yet maintain regulatory and durability robustness. Define calibration of after treatment systems to meet future Tier 3 and LEVIII emissions requirements as required by the corporate emissions phase-in plan. Ensure that emissions calibrations meet driveability, NVH, and combustion quality functional objectives. Communicate emissions system (calibration and engine hardware) requirements to production Powertrain Application and PT program management teams. Apply appropriate procedures and methodologies for project management (planning, scheduling, reporting) to reach project deliverables. Support quality improvement efforts, share lessons learned, and perform benchmark analysis. Meet cost technical targets, time to market, and APS performances targets. This position will report directly to supervisors and operate under the general direction of the department manager.
