Carry out Projects and TSR engineering design work supporting the Project Manager. The main duty
is to do the engineering work required to provide the required automated systems to meet customer
specific application and needs. This includes Level 0 and Level 1 automation (PLC programming,
sensors integration, network configuration, electrical engineering, etc) as well as Mechatronics
(robotics, vision-based robot guidance / identification / inspection, data mining, etc).
Design product developments and custom designs when required into specific customer installation
projects. The Automation Engineer is responsible for the conception, detail engineering coordination
including selection of main components, programming at PLC and computer level, product
documentation build up, shop testing, commissioning and maintenance.
Main accountabilities :
• Responsible for automation, electrical and mechatronics design work in respect to the
technical specifications and project planned delivery mile stones.
• Organise and follow up the drafting work of the designer (draftsmen) on the home site and
remote sites. Responsible for drawings check, approval and official release for
manufacturing. Consider manufacturing cost parameters in the design.
• Validation of the new design and product development during the shop test and
• Coordination and technical support to Operations and Suppliers during manufacturing
• Design as per the relevant norms.
• Set up and maintenance of Design Rules to share best practices across the group.
• Report progress proactively to the Project Manager and TSR requestors. Administrate the
work in the TSR system database.
• Report and coordinate technical issues or products continuous improvement to the relevant
Product Manager. Handle the associate technical documentation work.
