Functional Architect
 
Location:           Bristol
 
Salary:                £35,000 to £40,000 + bonus, overtime, flexible working options & good pension
 
Working with a world leading engineering organisation, we are looking for someone to join a fast-paced project in the early stages of design development, maturing the functional architecture and requirements.
 
The Weapon System behaviour has been divided into a set of functional domains. Work within a functional domain aims to gradually decompose the top-level behaviour of a domain into individual functions that can be allocated to equipment and provided to the design team as sets of requirements for design.
 
Functional Architect Role will involve:
We are looking for new team members across several domains, the role covers multiple aspects including:
  • Working with the other Functional Design Domains to understand, challenge and negotiate the boundaries and interactions guided by the Functional Modelling Architect who will help to ensure coherency.
  • Performing functional analysis to decompose functional requirements into lower-level functions
  • Identify, scope, and conduct functional design & trade studies to be undertaken to mature understanding of required behaviour/performance and support requirement maturation
  • Propose allocation of functional performance and/or constraints to physical sub-systems
  • Working closely with domain partners to support maturation of the functional behaviour, architecture, and requirements
  • Developing relevant aspects of the project MBSE models
  • The candidate will likely be responsible for a subset of munition equipment TRSs and heavily contribute to the development of the functional and performance requirements. This will involve working closely with other domains and the customers of the respective TRSs.
  • They will need to keep track of compliance and shortfalls (TBD registers) and pull-out risks that emerge and agree mitigation plans as required.
 
Functional Architect experience required
  • Ability to develop requirements collaboratively with partners
  • Experience of Model Based Systems Engineering
  • While not essential, experience of Rhapsody and Doors tools would be beneficial.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills to interact both internally and externally with customers, technical specialists, equipment teams and senior management.
 
This company can offer you a fantastic chance to grow, develop and fulfil your career within a dynamic engineering environment and provide ongoing training, development, and progression opportunities.
