The systems engineering tasks include capturing and defining stakeholder requirements, system interconnect/interface design, coordination with design engineering and the customer, integration testing, and customer integration support. The candidate will also be responsible for providing direction, coordination, and control of assigned systems projects, including management of specific work packages for scope, cost, and schedule in accordance with established systems engineering processes.
Additional activities may include:
  • Working with subsystem/domains to define and agree upon detailed requirements
