assemblies and units following methods, procedures, standards, and
sequences. Lays out and assembles units for production equipment
according to designs and specifications. Adjusts and calibrates
systems as needed. Troubleshoots and modifies equipment by adding,
removing, or altering components as defined by predetermined
diagrams and sketches. Corrects malfunctions by making adjustments
or replacing parts or components as directed. Uses hand and small
power tools, and various measuring and testing devices in
performing job duties. May monitor and verify quality in accordance
with statistical process or other control procedures. Documents
actions performed and tests results and tracks any
non-conformances. May be required to undertake root cause analysis.
Understands the impact of changes in regulations.
- Calibrates electronic test measuring equipment and signal
generating equipment to conform to set standards. Tests,
calibrates, adjusts, and maintains electromechanical, mechanical,
optical, pneumatic, hydro mechanical, and pressure-type measuring
and indicating instruments. Sets up calibration sequences, methods
and procedures according to detailed specifications, blueprints,
drawings, and requirements. Disassembles, cleans, repairs, and
replaces defective parts of test equipment such as pressure gauges
and tension meters. May monitor and verify quality in accordance
with statistical process or other control procedures.
- Develops and evaluates metrology calibration systems that
measure characteristics of objects, substances, or phenomena, such
as length, mass, time, temperature, electric current, luminous
intensity, and derived units of physical or chemical measure.
Identifies magnitude of error sources contributing to uncertainty
of results to determine reliability of measurement process in
quantitative terms. Develops calibration methods and techniques
based on principles of measurement science, technical analysis of
measurement problems and accuracy and precision requirements.
- Develops, modifies, applies and maintains quality evaluation
and control systems and protocols for processing materials into
partially finished or finished materials product. Collaborates with
engineering, research and development, laboratory and production,
and other functions to ensure quality standards are in place.
Devises and implements methods and procedures for inspecting,
testing and evaluating the precision and accuracy of products and
production equipment. Designs and analyzes inspection and testing
processes, mechanisms and equipment; conducts quality assurance
tests; and performs statistical analysis to assess, characterize,
control and manage risks of product quality and associated use
conditions including the handling and control of non-conformances.
May perform root cause analysis of incidents requiring corrective
action. Ensures that corrective measures and deviation meet
acceptable reliability standards and that documentation is
compliant with requirements. May specialize in the areas of design,
incoming material, production control, product evaluation and
reliability, inventory control and/or research and development as
they apply to product or process quality. May be certified in Lean
and Six-Sigma quality methodologies and utilize quality tools to

obtain technical information; investigates reports of defective,
damaged or malfunctioning parts, assemblies, equipment or systems;
and reviews production schedules and orders. Examines, measures,
inspects or tests defective parts for conformance. Evaluates
findings to formulate corrective actions.
- Performs measurement surveys using photogrammetry, total
stations, laser trackers or other electronic 3-D instruments. Uses
computer aided designs (CAD) graphic user interface software for
design. Plans work to be performed and determines methods and
sequence of operations working from tool design drawings or own
designs. Sets up and operates optical instruments to check overall
and detailed alignment, fit, or adjustment of assemblies. Develops
and designs holding devices and jig and fixture details. Prepares
operational sequences and shop drawings covering parts fabrication
and assembly to be performed by others. May monitor and verify
quality in accordance with statistical process or other control
