Job Description:

HiL Test Design Engineer - ( AER0002OO )


This position is not currently funded If funding is obtained, qualified candidates will be contacted to apply to a funded posting

The Hardware in the Loop (HiL) Test Design Engineer supports the product development and system integration processes by developing test procedures for automated execution, implementing tests using Hardware in the Loop equipment, documenting and reviewing execution reports, reporting incidents, and tracking software updates to fix issues

The HiL Test Design Engineer develops expertise in software test design and has advanced knowledge in vehicle functional partitioning, electrical and communication architectures, Fords embedded software processes, and the Global Product Development System

This role requires close collaboration with feature owners, engineering, and suppliers to develop a strong understanding of the vehicle functions and implement appropriate test design strategies for early identification of defects and to provide evidence of defect elimination

Main Responsibilities

Single point of contact for the test organization and the feature owner, engineering team, and supplier

Manage the test project for the assigned features including integration/definition, scope/coverage, time, communications, and risk

Develop and negotiate the testing scope and statement of work

Support the tradeoff analysis of test requirements vs test environment capabilities to define test scope and instrumentation strategies

Analyze requirements, vehicle components electrical schematics, functional specifications, and FMEA documentation

Design, maintain and execute test procedures in alignment with test design guidelines and strategy

Document test environment, automation, and vehicle variant management requirements

Implement and validate test environment, automation, and vehicle variant management solutions

Develop test procedures to validate the test environment (intake tests)

Analyze test execution results to generate reports, document incidents, and drive them to resolution

Troubleshoot vehicle systems and test environment functionality to minimize false positive incident reports

Implement continuous improvement strategies for test design, management, and execution processes

Dynamic The role supports different vehicle features with varying levels of complexity and require diverse technologies for automation which need to be learnt, deployed, and maintained

Hands on Work is performed in the lab with direct access to vehicle hardware and simulation equipment Working in new technology pilots is done in parallel with day to day operations

Constant location The role is performed in the lab and does not require constant travel to support testing at production sites

Agile, learning and collaborative team The team members have diverse backgrounds and experience that are shared through collaboration in multidisciplinary projects, technical design reviews, incident reviews, and day to day operations
