Oshkosh team members collaborate around the world and around the clock to build something greater than themselves. Because someone, somewhere is counting on us to make a difference.
Oshkosh products use hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical systems for work functions and suspension systems. These systems typically function together to provide the complete machine or vehicle performance. The hydraulics modeling and simulation(M&S) engineer simulates these systems to verify that the performance of each system meets the performance requirements.
The hydraulics M&S engineer applies software tools such Matlab, Simulink, AMESim, and Python to models these systems. The M&S engineer works with design engineers from hydraulics, pneumatics, and electrical engineering to gather the necessary information to build the simulation models. Model parameters are typically collected through 3D computer models and 2D drawings. Sometimes dimensions are collected through measuring components or working with a metrology lab to measure components. Sometimes parameters need to be collected from suppliers. Results from the simulation model are reported to internal customers and documented in an engineering report.
Overall responsibility for management and supervision of engineering teams working on engineering project(s) within a design and development program. Direct high level engineering analysis and design of new and modified components and subsystems in accordance with engineering standards and project scope to ensure that designs meet customer requirements, corporate objectives, are safe, and can be manufactured.
