DMU Integrator

Parque Industrial de Elche (Poligono Industrial), Spain

Mission 

As a DMU (Digital Mock-Up) Integrator, your mission at PLD Space is to manage and optimize the digital representation of launch vehicles throughout the product development lifecycle. You will play a critical role in ensuring the accuracy of the digital models, facilitating collaboration among multidisciplinary teams, and supporting the overall design processes.

Responsibilities 

  • Digital Mock-Up (DMU) Management: Manage the digital mock-up environment using Siemens NX software. Maintain the integrity of the digital models, ensuring they accurately represent the physical systems.
  • Model Integration: Integrate CAD (Computer-Aided Design) models, assemblies, and subsystems into the digital mock-up environment, ensuring proper alignment, clearances, and interfaces between components.
  • Collaboration Facilitation: Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including mechanical engineers, structural analysts, systems engineers, and manufacturing teams, to ensure seamless integration of design data and to resolve design-related issues.
  • Configuration Management: Implement and maintain configuration management processes for digital models to track changes, revisions, and design iterations.
  • Management of the different launch vehicle effectivities applied at DMU level in the PLM. Definition and management of standardized elements in the launch vehicle DMU
  • Follow-up and control of launch vehicle mass properties’ budget
  • Validation and Verification: Perform validation and verification activities on the digital models to ensure that they meet design requirements, including geometric, structural, and kinematic aspects.
  • DMU Reviews: Organize and lead DMU reviews to assess model quality, accuracy, and compliance with design standards. Provide feedback and recommendations for improvements.
  • Model Optimization: Collaborate with design engineers to optimize digital models for performance, manufacturability, and assembly. Identify and propose design changes when necessary.
  • Interdisciplinary Coordination: Act as a liaison between different engineering disciplines, ensuring that all aspects of the digital mock-up align with the overall project objectives.
  • Training and Support: Provide training and support to team members and end-users on the use of Siemens NX and the digital mock-up environment.
  • Best Practices: Stay updated on industry best practices, software updates, and emerging technologies related to digital mock-up and CAD integration and apply this knowledge to improve processes.
  • Generate documentation, including user guides, guidelines and user manuals for internal customers use.
  • Generate documentation for formal program development reviews.

Required Knowledge

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, or a related field.
  • Proficiency in Siemens NX (formerly known as Unigraphics) software for 3D modeling, assembly design, and digital mock-up management.
  • Experience in Teamcenter as PLM for the management and the storage of the DMU Items.
  • Strong understanding of CAD principles, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), and design for manufacturability and assembly (DFMA).
  • Knowledge of configuration management practices and tools for managing design data.
  • Familiarity with aerospace industry standards and regulations related to CAD and DMU, such as AS9100.
  • Understanding of interdisciplinary engineering coordination and collaboration.
  • Ability to perform model validation and verification activities.

Required Competencies 

  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills to identify and resolve design-related issues within the digital mock-up.
