•Geometric compatibility / clash detection
•Confirm required clearance to moving, hot, or sharp features
•Assess feasibility of flexible routings
•Assess mounting methods and features
•Review fixing locations and definition
•Confirm CAD is in line with CAD data levels assigned
•Drive cross functional issue resolution of issues identified through regular DMU reviews.
•Interface with Package chunk teams for solution of macro-compatibility issues.
•Interface with other DPA teams (e.g. Manufacturing, Service, CAE) for resolution of all DPA issues identified affecting geometric compatibility.
•Implement appropriate metrics to track and report compatibility progress.
Essential Skills and experience:
•Minimum 5 years experience working in a cross-functional geometric integration / Package / DMU role. Automotive experience preferable, but other disciplines will be considered e.g. aerospace, rail;
