o To provide a system design capability to new programmes through future concept and assessment (C&A) phases as well as through the development and manufacturing (D&M) phase, adopting the PL Architecture as well as other Weapon System (WS) reference architectures.
o To undertake systems analysis and design, and elaborate parent requirements through the sub-system design phase taking account of the functional and physical design.
o To understand and manage source requirements received from projects for decomposition through the onward design. To establish requirements traceability and manage requirements queries and changes.
o To develop detailed sub-system functional designs using SysML, and derive subsequent component requirements.
o Undertake general Systems Engineering studies and investigations to support the Product Line and projects.
o To support research studies in the development and validation of Product algorithms and capabilities to meet future project needs.
o To develop and maintain the MP&C Product Line System Architecture (SysML) model. The Architecture has been designed to support a flexible Product Line (PL) for future MP&C products. It applies the principles of design for modularity and reuse, supported by the establishment of best practice engineering processes for Product Lines.
o To help develop methods for the design, development and instantiation of Products from the Product Line.
o Working with Future Systems teams, understand the future direction and trends in weapon system and wider battlespace architecting in order to inform the MP&C PL Roadmap and its technologies.
o To define product design assurance strategies and develop test plans and descriptions.
o Liaise with the Software Design and Equipment teams to coordinate the onward development of the software components and equipment in line with design for modularity and re-use principles.
o Participate in technology studies to identify candidate solutions and advise on selection.
o Establish, maintain and adopt systems processes and procedures including configuration control, requirements management, validation/verification strategies, product definition, etc.
o Promote the benefits of architecture-centered development, and in particular the adoption of reference architectures for the benefits of modularity and reuse.
Additional Job Details:
o A systemic thinker with the ability to solve problems in a structured manner, identifying key abstractions in their solution.
o Excellent reasoning, analytical and problem solving skills.
o An ability to adapt to changing priorities, programme needs and tasks.
o Experience in the application of systematic design methods to articulate a design solution.
o Openness to an understanding and use of industry best practice in the establishment of Product Lines.
o Sound understanding and experience in applying System Engineering processes (including System and Sub-System Design, System Test and Integration).
o Relevant Engineering or Science based Degree (or equivalent).
Experience in the use of System Modelling using SysML (or UML) (preferably using Rhapsody).
o Knowledge of tools for Requirements Management (preferably DOORS) and Configuration Management (preferably RTC).
o Exposure to software architectures, technologies and methods.
o Design and development of ground-based mission systems.
o Algorithm specification, development and validation.
o Experience working in a Product Line team or in a product team adopting a Product Line. o Understanding of Enterprise Architectures (preferably MODAF).
o The opportunity would suit an experienced software engineer with a UML/OOD modelling background who is thinking of moving into Systems Design.
