Working with a world leading engineering organisation, we are looking for a Functional Domain Lead to join a fast-paced project in the early stages of design development, maturing the functional architecture and requirements.
The 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.
As the Functional Domain Lead, you will in the Prepare Engagement Functional Design Domain, who cover all the work completed in the preparation and planning for an engagement up until initialising for launch and will involve close working with the mission planning team.
Functional Domain Lead Role will involve:
  • Technically co-ordinate & drive activities across the Design Domain to ensure coherent & mature embodiment of the required system-level behaviour to time quality & cost. This will involve working across functions and departments to ensure a viable design.
  • Identify, scope, estimate time and cost of functional design & trade studies to be undertaken
  • Propose allocation of functional performance and/or constraints to physical sub-systems, facilitating key trade-offs decisions, particularly where trade-offs traverse different DA or domain responsibilities
  • Manage the domain evolution, ensuring consistency between domain sub-system configurations is understood and aligned.
  • Ensure the functional design and functional architecture relevant to the domain is developed collaboratively between partners. Facilitate common modelling approach and/or mutually agreed model interfaces to aid parallel development.
  • Generate and maintain design and performance, development, proving and qualification within the domain
  • Ensure risks are identified as part of the System Failure Mode & Effects Analysis (SysFMEA), Design FMEA (DFMEA) and Class of Difficulty Assessments are understood, and a consistent approach is taken to reduce these as appropriate.
  • Ensure development of a domain-based proving & qualification strategy and manage the System acceptance for the domain
  • Communicate domain-level considerations to customers, ensuring messaging consistency
  • Chair internal and supporting external working groups/working communities as appropriate, IAW programme governance structure
  • Have responsibility for a subset of munition equipment CPSs, leading on writing functional and performance requirements and ensuring other sections are completed by appropriate parties in reasonable timescale.
Functional Domain Lead experience required
  • Experience of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and MBSE tools (Rhapsody)
  • Experience of requirements development and requirements management tools (DOORS)
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills to interact both technically and programmatically with customers, technical specialists, equipment teams and senior management.
  • Leadership capabilities to be able to direct diverse, multi-disciplinary teams and support development of members within the team.
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.
