- Profitability – At or under budget
The Project Engineer is an experienced engineer who is capable of performing all engineering functions with minimal supervision, including layout, fabrication drawings, installation drawings and calculations for our conveyor system projects. The project engineer may be assigned specific deliverables for which he is responsible including Issued for Review drawings, Issued for Construction drawings, Pre-start-up deliverables, As-Builts, and supporting calculations.
The Project Engineer will be expected to develop conveyor systems drawings that are on-time, accurate, and on budget. Although working under the leadership of a Senior Engineer/Designer, the Project Engineer is expected to manage large parts of the project on his/her own, while coordinating his/her work with the rest of the team and their supervisor. In some cases, the engineer may be responsible for a small project from concept stage, and will take the lead in layout and developing fabrication and installation drawings. Some Project Engineers may elect to focus on the technical track in lieu of a managerial track. These engineers will be expected to have mastery of customer specifications and standards, system integration and calculations in support of conveyor design. They are to be a resource for the company in solving complex or unusual technical challenges during the design stage.
