Job Overview

The Staff Engineer will be playing as the SME (subject matter expertise) of CAE globally  to develop and improve CAE methods, processes and standards and incorporate them into program applications. He/she will provide CAE training, technical support and conduct electrical, thermal, structural and fatigue analysis requests from APL global engineering team.

Responsibilities and Task

1.    Plan, organize and conduct CAE trainings on regular basis to enhance product simulation capabilities of APL global engineering team •
2.    Assist/conduct product simulations to all product lines of APL global engineering team 
•    Provide technical support and conduct electrical, thermal, structural and fatigue analysis requests from APL global engineering team. 
•    Delivery of accurate, timely and directional analysis results. 
•    Model build, analysis, results interrogation, interpretation and recommendation on product design modification and improvement according to simulation result.  
•    Evaluate mechanical, electrical and thermal performance of product designs and processes. 
•    Create CAE Engineering status reports and verify completeness and correctness of CAE Assessments. 
•    Develop and improve current CAE methods, processes and standards and incorporate them into program applications on typical APL connectivity designs to enhance the efficiency and precision of the simulation despite of user experiences. 
•    Systematically setup and maintain the key parameters database of APL typical used materials etc. • 
3.    Continuous improvement  
•    Model correlation and updating of the simulation models/procedures from test results to close simulation loops to continuously improve on simulation precision.
