Title: Transmission Controls Engineer – Intermediate - 915
Location: Auburn Hills, Michigan
The Transmission Controls Engineer - Intermediate will be responsible for following agile development methods to support the design, development, implementation and testing of various drive strategy controls specifically related to shift scheduling, tcc release/lock-up, but may also include line pressure control, shift-by-wire, signal integrity and management, shift lever analysis and implementation.  This role also has the possibility to support product reviews on current/advanced transmission products to ensure controls are implemented to meet controllability, robustness, and durability requirements as well as propose/design algorithm changes as needed. Responsibilities include but not limited to:
  • Design and develop transmission control algorithms and validate these changes for production implementation
  • Create requirements for implementing these algorithms into transmission software
  • Perform verification and validation of these algorithms using SIL/HIL and in vehicle.
  • Establish and execute design verification plans for control logic development
  • Conduct design failure mode effects analysis for control logic changes
  • Support transmission hardware improvements, cost reduction efforts through control logic development and other quality initiatives
  • Support transmission calibration efforts by contributing to calibration guide and base calibration development
  • Support calibration verification and release transmission calibrations for production
  • Bachelor of Science in Computer, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering
  • Minimum 3-5 year of engineering experience, however, an advanced degree and/or academic research in a related field may count towards experience requirement
  • Basic understanding of powertrain functions (transmission, engines, driveline)
  • Good overall knowledge of transmission control systems related to drive strategy, shift scheduling, shift-by-wire, signal filtering, oil budgeting, and shift lever analysis
  • Experience in standard development tools, modeling/simulation/development/testing/validation
  • Experience in standard productivity tools (MS Office Suite)
  • Outstanding interpersonal and problem solving skills
  • Self-starter who is able to work cross-functionally with other organizations

Preferred Qualifications:
  • Advanced/Master degree in Engineering
  • Deep understanding of powertrain functions and Controls Algorithms focused on conventional combustion engines interfaces with transmissions
  • Minimum of 5-10 years of powertrain development experience
  • Subject matter expertise in transmission controls or specialist in one or more of the following areas:
  • Line Pressure control
  • Transmission Oil Budget Analysis
  • Transmission Oil Usage modelling
  • Shift Scheduling
  • Shift-By-Wire
  • Signal Filtering/Conditioning
  • Shift Lever analysis and implementation
  • Knowledge of "C" programming language utilized in embedded code as well as MATLAB/SimuLink, Amesim, Borland/MSDN, Lauterbach
  • Working experience with automotive development/calibration tools (ETAS, INCA, CDA, Vector, DOORS)
