Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Carnegie Mellon University's global leadership in the research and development of advanced robotics and automation, artificial intelligence, additive manufacturing and materials science is rapidly transforming manufacturing and catalyzing economic development in Pittsburgh and beyond. This leadership, coupled with Carnegie Mellon's unparalleled ability to work problems at disciplinary boundaries, is enabling us to envision and accelerate the world into the physical and artificial future unlike any other.
Our flagship manufacturing program at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), the Manufacturing Futures Institute (MFI), combines cyber information technologies, manufacturing technologies and social sciences to create a highly collaborative advanced manufacturing research ecosystem that drives the digital transformation of manufacturing, accelerates the translation of associated research discoveries toward commercialization, and advances the methodologies and technologies to enhance the workforce.
MFI at Carnegie Mellon University is seeking a highly motivated Advanced Manufacturing Engineer to support the growth of its research and education programs at our new 58,000 sq. ft. advanced manufacturing facility, Mill 19 at Hazelwood Green. The partnership of CMU and the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute at Mill19 enables the combined team to engage in efforts that span from basic and applied research to development projects that de-risk technology solutions for direct transition to industry.
The successful candidate will work alongside faculty, students and staff in a dynamic environment to support the needs of the advanced manufacturing research projects at Mill 19. The role will interface with MFI partners within Mill 19 (the ARM Institute and Catalyst Connection) plus industry and government partners.
This position with MFI is an outstanding opportunity for someone who thrives in an intellectually stimulating and growth oriented work environment that demands the utmost collaborative spirit and willingness to ensure success of the institute's mission.
Responsibilities will include:
Assist in the design and implementation of the digital backbone (network, hardware and software) at Mill 19 to achieve a digital factory like environment for advanced manufacturing research
Data Historian Stewardship/Administration
Implementation, configuration and start-up of the data historian (PI System) software.
Define and document data management procedures for Mill 19.
Implement and manage security protocols to regulate access to data
Ensure all data management software is up-to-date and communicate with CMU computing services for installation of software updates.
Collaborate with and train end users to define the data streams they need, how to get them into the data historian, and any alarms that should be associated with those streams.
Assist in the connection of sensors to equipment and ensure sensors communicate over the network with the data historian
Define, recommend and implement options for storing digital images and video streams.
This role includes building "points" (setting up data historians for data streams), security (not firewalls but rather who has access to what data), Asset Framework development (backend to conduct some basic data transformations), and visualization (graphics will often be custom built), troubleshoot and resolve technical issues (i.e., transmission from sensors, ingestion of data to historian, contextualization of data, etc.).
Interaction with external partners including representation of the technical aspects of the digital factory with potential partners
Interaction with small and medium sized companies wanting to improve understanding of digital factory environments (including supporting regional Build Back Better program objectives)
Maintain a data base for the Manufacturing Futures Institute for immediate and future use.
Work will take place at Mill 19 (Hazelwood-Green). You should be comfortable working in a diverse, multi-disciplinary and decentralized environment. Flexibility, excellence, and passion are vital qualities within this role. Further, inclusion, collaboration and cultural sensitivity are valued competencies at Carnegie Mellon. Therefore, we are in search of a team member who is able to effectively inspire and interact with a varied population of internal and external partners at a high level of integrity and professionalism.
