  • Create and maintain sub-system specifications in requirements management software (e.g., Doors, DNG, Gerrit, Jama Connect, codebeamer, etc.)

  • Root cause all applicable sub-system related issues and translate solutions into new or revised requirements

  • Create and maintain Functional Architecture Documents (FADs)/Context Diagrams with the assistance of Global Architecture teams

  • Lead sub-system level FMEAs/Solution FMEAs and collaborate on System and Component FMEAs

  • Use Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) Integration Tool (FIT) for managing FMEA processes across applicable subsystems

  • Create and maintain Features, Stories, and/or Change Requests to manage requirements and specifications of sub-systems using change management tools (e.g.Jira)
