Electrical Distribution System (EDS) group within the Electrical Engineering function of JLR PD is responsible for the design, development and delivery of EDS components (such as connectors, fuse boxes), and Wiring Harness for the complete vehicle system in close partnership with EDS suppliers and other CoCs, across all JLR forward model programmes. Electrical Distribution System for Engines (EDSE) is a group within the EDS department responsible for the delivery of engine harnesses and associated end items such as link harnesses, brackets and fasteners for all forward model programmes. EDSE works very closely with base engines team in Powertrain Operations at Whitley to deliver to the unit gateways for new engine programmes. EDSE also works in close partnership with rest of the EDS organisation to ensure robust integration of engine harness in vehicle applications on all forward model programmes. This vacancy has emerged due to the recent re-structuring in the EDSE organisation and to backfill an existing position. The Role: Lead Engineer role within EDSE is responsible for the delivery of forward model designs of engine harnesses and associated end items for the assigned JLR engine programmes. The role involves managing the delivery by working with the EDS Full Service Suppliers (FSS) on all aspects of harness design including gathering requirements, driving CAD maturity, completing design verification and validation, releasing parts and managing BOM and implementing electrical change requests. Lead Engineer is expected to drive the EDS FSS to deliver on time, at the right quality and costs, by running periodic module team meetings to track part releases and resolve AIMS Issue in a timely manner.
Experience And Skills
Lead Engineer role is supported by the EDSE programme planner for interfacing with the applicable programme management teams, for both engine and vehicle programmes. This ensures that the Lead Engineer is informed of new PDLs and programmes, build delivery dates and quantities, target dates for DT submissions and other key milestones for the programme. Based on the e-Scale for the programme, the role also requires optimising the EDS front end architecture to minimise harness complexity and support the requirements of the engine manufacturing plant as well as the vehicle assembly plant.
