Role Overview

The Test Requirements Strategy (TRS) engineer is a small systems engineer that will support the development of test requirements and related activities for various electronic product lines developed within the Electric Systems business unit. The development of test requirements are directed at production testing of analog and digital PWBs, electronic controllers, power conversion and power distribution equipment used in aircraft electrical power generating systems. The successful candidate must demonstrate technical understanding of signal level circuits and power circuits. In addition the candidate must be a strong communicator.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Analyze electrical schematics to find the best method of testing a given circuit.

  • Determine the fault coverage the tests offer to each component in the circuit.

  • Develop the Test Requirements Specification (TRS) for how the test software and hardware should perform to test all circuits within a unit.

  • Integrate and troubleshoot the TRS on the test platform (hardware and software), along with test unit hardware and software

  • Coordinate the resolution of any issues.

  • Perform test coverage analysis to understand and close any coverage gaps.

  • Develop conceptual and detailed designs of electronics test strategies

  • Design circuit simulation of production tests

  • Develop electronic simulation of test code as well as integration of the test platform.

  • Learn all TRS related processes in support of developing test strategies, program specific adaptations, and test coverage analysis for Aerospace Systems electronic products to run on existing and proposed test platforms.

  • Provide production support for existing electronic tests

  • Support outsourced work
