Systems Engineer II
Posted on: September 13, 2019
Calling 2020 grads! Are you a college student who enjoys putting
complex engineering systems together, testing and attempting to
break them? Would you like to understand the possible modes of
failure, developing fixes or redesigns, retesting and ultimately
fielding a system which will perform with NoDoubt each and every
time? These positions are 2020 starts!
Are you about to graduate with a degree in Electrical Engineering,
Computer Engineering, Systems Engineering, Aerospace Engineering,
Math, or Computer Science who is interested in becoming a Systems
Engineer and working in integration, test and validation
activities? Then you might be ready to begin your professional
career as an engineer within Raytheon's IDS Systems Validation,
Test and Analysis Directorate (SVTAD).
IDS Engineering's Systems Validation, Test and Analysis Directorate
(SVTAD) is the central focus for integration, test and validation
activities. SVTAD employees provide the expertise to ensure
customer success through the development and execution of
innovative and comprehensive test, verification, and validation
strategies, processes, tools and techniques. SVTAD employees are
involved in all aspects of test including: design-for-test,
integration, subsystem and component level testing through sell-off
of IDS ' most sophisticated systems and technologies.
SVTAD's System Engineers work with the other IDS directorates and
Integrated Business Teams from initial concepts to product
sell-off, assisting in the integration and testing of hardware and
software, developing test plans and procedures, debugging and
testing systems functions and interfaces, and by conducting
performance evaluation, system verification, live fire readiness
reviews and system sell off. Activities may require extended hours,
alternate shifts and travel.
As Systems Engineers, we work within an interdisciplinary process
that ensures that the customer's needs are satisfied throughout a
system's entire life cycle. This process is comprised of the
following seven tasks:
1. State the problem. Stating the problem is the most important
systems engineering task. It entails identifying customers,
understanding customer needs, establishing the need for change,
discovering requirements, and defining system functions.
2. Investigate alternatives. Alternatives are investigated and
evaluated based on performance, cost, and risk.
3. Model the system. Running models clarifies requirements, reveals
bottlenecks and fragmented activities, reduces cost and exposes
duplication of efforts.
4. Integrate. Integration means designing interfaces and bringing
system elements together so they work as a whole. This requires
extensive communication and coordination.
5. Launch the system. Launching the system means running the system
and producing outputs -- making the system do what it was intended
6. Assess performance. Performance is assessed using figures of
merit, technical performance measures, and metrics -- measurement
is the key. If you cannot measure it, you cannot control it. If you
cannot control it, you cannot improve it.
7. Re-evaluation. Re-evaluation should be a continual and iterative
process with many parallel loops.
