Job Description Primary Purpose:
Planning, execution, engineering analysis and support for Quality Department’s production vehicle drive process (ie – GFP Dynamic Audit Process) involving NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness); Pre-Production & Series vehicles, Model Year changes, etc. Engineering interface to R&D (Development Liaisons) for the evaluation and interpretation of vehicle noise/functional specifications (Body, Chassis, Powertrain).

 
 
Essential Functions:
Direct Engineering support for the GFP Audit Process (ie Dynamic) which performs long/short test track vehicle drives including but not limited to, noise, interior/exterior functions, and overall vehicle performance. Lead support for JDPower initiatives around any customer relevant topics pertaining to vehicle noises and functions.
 
Plan, conduct, and complete appropriate NVH  lab testing (ie – Hot/Cold Chamber, Shaker Booth, etc.) Identify issues through hands-on vehicle testing, vehicle evaluation and data assessment. Perform data processing and analysis, conduct root cause analysis, and recommend solutions for vehicle and component issues for the models we build.
 
Engineering Support thru the testing of shake, harshness, powertrain and drivetrain NVH, body and suspension isolation, road noise, HVAC systems, and other systems.
 
Perform NVH and Wind Noise subjective evaluations, investigate problem root causes, develop appropriate countermeasures, and summarize findings in reports; Support Team member training (ie – drivers)
 
Investigation, analysis and feedback of issues affecting vehicle noise/function delivering feedback to various Quality Loops for short/long term corrective action measures.
 
Participate in Cross-Functional teams with groups responsible for NVH development of body, chassis and power train utilizing both CAE and physical test.
