Staffing Requirements

The staffing requirements for the project are summarized in the table below.

Staffing
Name Discipline Role / Skills
Dr. Alan Nye ME Faculty Guide, Will work closely with the team on an on-going basis to facilitate success.
Dr. Agamemnon Crassidis ME Faculty Consultant. Will provide knowledge and experience in the realm of complex systems engineering and modeling.
Dr. Mark Kempski ME Faculty Consultant. Will provide knowledge and experience in the realm of complex systems engineering and modeling.
TBD EE Faculty Consultant. Will provide EE expertise.
ME Teaching Assistant
Lawrence Litchfield ME Project Manager. Will be responsible for guiding team members to achieve the goals set forth in the mission statement above. The Project Manager will need to delegate work effectively, evaluating the input from all teammates, and will also help the team make critical decisions by playing a key role in design approval. This position is responsible for managing finances, setting up meetings, and editing the final report presented at the end of each Senior Design section.
TBD Student ISE Project Planning and Control Coordinator. Will be responsible for aiding the Project Manager in the overall organization of the project throughout the course of Senior Design I and II. Since the project will come together during testing days that are scheduled for the spring quarter, this student will have the additional responsibility of creating a schedule of tests to be performed. They will also play a key role in executing the testing procedures as planned.
Bart Lettenberger ME Pneumatic Shift System Lead Engineer. Will lead all research, development, testing, and engineering activities related to the pneumatic shift system and associated driver displays.
Jonathan Pickard ME Engine Control Systems Lead Engineer. Will lead all research, development, testing, and engineering activities related to the GCIC and traction control systems.
TBD Student ME Mechanical Design Engineer. Will be responsible for designing and manufacturing key subsystems within the innovative driver aids systems. The position should be filled by a student majoring in Mechanical Engineering, who has a strong background using Pro-Engineer or another 3-D modeling program. Besides modeling many physical elements within the driver aids subsystems, the Design Engineer must keep a log of all hand calculations and resources used during any design process that takes place. The person who fills this position is responsible for ordering any materials that are required by the project after approval by the team and Project Manager, setting up shop time for machining, and fabricating any structures that are incorporated in their design. As such, the Design Engineer must be familiar with machining processes and practices. The student entering into this role must have a strong background in Materials Processing, Statics, Mechanics of Materials, and DME.
TBD Student EE Electrical Design Engineer. Will first be required to learn what the previous teams accomplished and expand upon their electrical design. They should have a strong background in circuit design and should be able to debug and troubleshoot circuitry. They should have experience in coding microcontrollers, PCB layout tools, surface mount soldering tools, power supplies, signal processing, and noise filtering, etc. This electrical engineer should also have some knowledge of how engine management systems work and how their subsystems and components work.
