The IPDT may require the candidate to manage one or more co-located, small (> 5, 15 person) engineering teams. In order to create and maintain an overall project Master Schedule that is in line with client milestones, the candidate must employ knowledge of engineering disciplines, procedures, and tools. The candidate must create project subtasks for the project Master Schedule in order to direct the internal IPDT and guarantee that designs adhere to client technical requirements and procurement criteria. Within these Master Schedule project subtasks, the Project Engineering drawings (internal manufacturing and customer drawings), engineering documentation to support Qualification/Certification efforts (i.e. ATP, QTPs, etc.), and engineering analysis to support Qualification/Certification efforts (produced by self or providing technical guidance to supporting engineers) are other duties that would fall under the purview of the Engineer III position.
