Personality Type

Knowledge

  • Engineering principles

    The engineering elements like functionality, replicability, and costs in relation to the design and how they are applied in the completion of engineering projects.

  • Engineering processes

    The systematic approach to the development and maintenance of engineering systems.

  • CAE software

    The software to perform computer-aided engineering (CAE) analysis tasks such as Finite Element Analysis and Computional Fluid Dynamics.

  • Manufacturing processes

    The steps required through which a material is transformed into a product, its development and full-scale manufacturing.

Skills

  • Adjust engineering designs

    Adjust designs of products or parts of products so that they meet requirements.

  • Create solutions to problems

    Solve problems which arise in planning, prioritising, organising, directing/facilitating action and evaluating performance. Use systematic processes of collecting, analysing, and synthesising information to evaluate current practice and generate new understandings about practice.

  • Resolve equipment malfunctions

    Identify, report and repair equipment damage and malfunctions; communicate with field representatives and manufacturers to obtain repair and replacement components.

  • Perform maintenance on installed equipment

    Perform the maintenance on installed equipment on-site. Follow procedures to avoid uninstalling equipment from machinery or vehicles.

  • Read engineering drawings

    Read the technical drawings of a product made by the engineer in order to suggest improvements, make models of the product or operate it.

  • Collaborate with engineers

    Work closely and communicate with engineers on designs or new products.

  • Analyse test data

    Interpret and analyse data collected during testing in order to formulate conclusions, new insights or solutions.

  • Troubleshoot

    Identify operating problems, decide what to do about it and report accordingly.

  • Advise on manufacturing problems

    Advise the visited industrial plants on how to better oversee production to ensure that the manufacturing problems are correctly diagnosed and solved.

  • Conduct routine machinery checks

    Check machinery and equipment to ensure reliable performance during use and operations in worksites.

  • Record test data

    Record data which has been identified specifically during preceding tests in order to verify that outputs of the test produce specific results or to review the reaction of the subject under exceptional or unusual input.
