Location: Coventry
Rate: 24.43 ph PAYE/31.44 ph Ltd Co
Employment Type: Contract
Reference: J24910
Position Description
This role is to provide a strategic framework that supports Product Development's CAE and
system simulation work streams. The objective of the role is to create robust, representative
and correlated transmissions and transmission controller models for use by the Powertrain
transmission team and the wider Product Development community.
Deciding how best to develop the Transmission plant models with key suppliers (Either
developing in house models to meet requirements Or using supplier based plant models.).
Agreeing and documenting all plant model interfaces, ensuring commonality across all

and Controls teams.
Optimisation of technology and AT fuel economy benefit.
Standard package of CAE data to support transmission calibration.
Torque Converter characteristics support of hardware development.
Close loop feedback with calibration development through the delivery.
Analysis of current calibrations to ensure no degradation to FE / CO2.
Develop the CAE data used to improve desktop calibrations (Altitude / Road Load / vehicle
acceleration / development of shift logic)
Develop shift map calibration scheduling tool.
Develop shift quality tool and interaction with INCA.
Develop calibration hygiene tool to robustly check calibrations.
Ensuring all models developed are in line with Virtual hub processes and guidelines.
Skills Required

Skills Preferred
Experience within a calibration team
Knowledge of whole vehicle
Experience Required
Basic understanding of automatic transmissions
Experience in System/Vehicle Simulation tools such as IPG CARMAKER/Dymola/AmeSim
Ability to demonstrate knowledge of control systems, calibration and attributes.
Good interpersonal skills.
Knowledge of dynamic systems behaviour and Standards
Education Required
Relevant degree preferred
Additional Information
The successful candidate will regularly present model development progress to the Virtual
hub team and act as the single point of contact between the transmission and the Virtual
hub teams.
Be responsible for maintaining toolsets
