Mechanical Systems Technical Specialist

Our culture believes in _POWERING YOUR POTENTIAL_ . We provide global opportunities to develop your career, make your community a better place and work with today’s most innovative thinkers to solve the world’s toughest problems.

We believe in flexibility for you to explore your passions while making an impact through meaningful work within our inclusive workforce. That’s what _#LifeAtCummins_ is all about.

We are looking for a talented Mechanical Systems Technical Specialist to join our team specializing in Engineering for our Components Business Segment in Madison, WI

In this role, you will make an impact in the following ways:

+ Applies Principles of Fatigue and Durability - Determines life of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates component temperatures, natural frequencies, mode shapes, displacements, strains/stresses, wear, and fatigue life to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.

+ Applies Principles of Noise and Acoustics - Determines the acoustic behavior of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates both air and structure borne noise, sound power levels, sound quality, flexible body motion, and natural frequencies to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.

+ Applies Principles of Dynamics and Vibration - Determines motion of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates rigid and flexible body motion, natural frequencies, mode shapes, displacements, velocities, accelerations, friction, and wear to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.

+ Applies Principles of Statistical Methods - Analyzes technical data using descriptive statistics, probability distributions, graphical analysis, and statistical inference (population and sample, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing); models relationships between response and independent variables using analysis of variance, regression, and design of experiments to make rigorous, data-based decisions.

+ Product Function Test System Design - Interprets test equipment specifications from test standards or lab customer requirements; selects and integrates appropriate equipment, instrumentation and software to control boundary conditions and collect measurement data; assesses capability of the lab equipment against the requirements and support infrastructure.

+ Function Based Product Testing of "X" - Selects appropriate equipment and techniques to operate the product and record operational data in a hardware or software based testing environment most often required as part of a product verification or validation plan; evaluates quality and validity of measurement data; analyzes test results using accepted standards to characterize product capabilities in alignment with the requirements of the engineer responsible for making product decisions.

**Qualifications**

To be successful in this role you will need the following:

+ College, university, or equivalent Bachelor's degree in Engineering or other relevant technical disciplines is required. Post-graduate (Master's) degree relevant to this discipline

+ Prior Senior Engineer equivalent work experience in a relevant discipline. Demonstrated ability to apply fundamentals of vibration of discrete and continuous systems in test and fixture design, in interpretation of swept-sine and random response test data.

+ Demonstrated proficiency in reviewing proving ground acceleration/strain data for defects, in processing periodic, random and transient data to form profiles used in single-acutator durability testing (proficiency in spectral analysis, familiarity with Welch periodogram, high cycle fatigue weighting/Miner's rule).

+ Experience in using electrodynamic shakers and controllers to quantify modal parameters and to test parts for resistance to high cycle fatigue. Experience using MS Office tools, Matlab, LabVIEW, nCode, Siemens Test.Lab and Windows operating systems. Ability to lift up to 33 pounds, tighten and check torque on threaded fasteners, install and remove accelerometers, operate computer data acquisition and control equipment.

**Compensation and Benefits**

Base salary rate commensurate with experience. Additional benefits vary between locations and include options such as our 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan, Cash Balance Pension Plan, Medical/Dental/Life Insurance, Health Savings Account, Domestic Partners Coverage and a full complement of personal and professional benefits.
