Dimensional Analyst Job, Auburn Hills, MI

Job Number: 1027098

Location: Auburn Hills, MI

Date Posted: 4-25-2017


The Dimensional Analyst will be responsible for developing and maintaining critical product and process characteristics for Body Shop and Stamping Plants. The person in this positon recommends best gauging methods, performs data analysis to identify special and common cause problems and helps in development and roll-out of training material. The Analyst supports plants in root causing dimensional issues, works with cross-functional teams to recommend and evaluate corrective action and documents case studies. Responsibilities will include Interior and Exterior dimensional validation, creating Kaizens and eCims from QAF build issues and part validation, Root Cause Analysis, ensuring part availability for the QAF builds, Launch support and supplier interface.

This role will also include utilizing FCA's industry leading analysis technology to develop optimal part datum locating schemes using specialized software that combines 3D tolerance stack software, finite element analysis (FEA), and optimization techniques. The person in this position will be working closely with design engineering, stamping feasibility and dimensional engineering cross functional teams. In the design phase, the Analyst proposes datum schemes that will optimize the repeatability of part locating in the gage or tool. In the launch phase the analyst applies rigorous analytical techniques to troubleshoot root cause of repeatability problems including part quality. In addition, the Dimensional Analyst will use the specialized software to predict the influence of locating schemes, orientation, assembly sequence, datum coordination, gravity and joining techniques on complex flexible assemblies as well as use rigorous modeling techniques to develop insights to improve assembly behavior by design and in the plant. The ideal candidate drives the insights into part design and launch troubleshooting and will research and develop improvements to the analysis process and modeling tools. This position works with outside software suppliers and academic research teams to advance the theoretical basis and the practical applications of the analysis techniques. The Analyst will expand the practical applications in the plant setting.

Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's degree in Engineering or other technical discipline
  • ANY of the following experience or skills: 
    • Understanding of fundamental dimensional control principles (datum coordination, tolerance stacks, GD&T, slip planes, etc.)
    • Knowledge of 3D tolerance analysis specifically 3DCS or Variation Simulation Analysis (VSA)
    • Familiarity with finite element analysis (FEA) - especially ABAQUS
    • Understanding of basic modeling techniques (incremental development, validation, debugging, interpretation and presentation of results)
    • Dimensional problem solving experience in a manufacturing plant setting

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Advanced degree in Systems, Mechanical, or Manufacturing Engineering
  • 2+ years' experience in dimensional engineering in a manufacturing plant setting
  • 2+ years' experience in 3DCS modeling
  • Academic or hands-on experience with ABAQUS or ANSA
  • Academic or hands-on experience in computer modeling
