Broader Sys Mech Design roles include resolving design issues across the entire engine including multi CIPT or multi discipline issues. These include activities included in posting 41048BR

The SSIPT Leader is a new role that is a highly visible leadership opportunity within the Systems Engineering organization (SDCI in this case). The SSIPT Leader will be the single point of contact responsible for the sub-system to meet the all the associated technical milestones related to the sub-system (radial and axial clearances/gapping in this case). This position operates across a wide range of engineering disciplines (including CIPT’s), requiring excellent integration, organization, and communication skills.

Typical duties include:

Single point of contact (focal point) responsible for the sub-system schedules to meet sub-system technical milestones
