Job Description

System Designers are high level thinkers and experts in multiple disciplines in automation making them able to define and refine basic approaches to automation, working through roadblocks, detailing out technical plans of action and communicating to all stakeholders.  Our focus is process understanding through analysis of cycle time, accuracy, definition and testing of functional limits, and application of good manufacturing practices to meet customer needs and obligations.    

The overall goal of the Systems Design Team is to add systems level oversite to the sales, design and execution of projects while providing specific gap filling resources to help identify and manage design and operational execution risk.   This is accomplished by thorough upfront understanding of applications, detailed review of functionality and applying control limits within the ability of the provided automation solution.   This may involve proof of concept testing, assisting to manage technical solutions and control of testing parameters to accurately measure and report on our ability to meet intended goals.

It is critical to communicate challenges, set expectations, and predict risks to be successful at delivering an extraordinary customer experience (ECE) as well as an extraordinary employee experience (EEE).
