Essential job functions:
This position is concerned with the design of tools, jigs, fixtures, and gauges which are used to manufacture and test items produced by Moog. Most items are requested by Methods Engineers, however, requests also come from other engineering areas when items are needed for prototype, assembly, test, or in development of Moog products. The incumbent frequently must obtain additional information from all available sources to effectively accomplish the design. On major projects, the requesting party frequently performs design calculations and functionally checks the results. On all designs, the incumbent is expected to check his own work dimensionally. Layouts may be approved by the supervisor as required before detailing.

The incumbent is expected to work closely with the methods engineers, tool room employees and supervisors where the items designed are made and used. The incumbents effectiveness is measured by the amount of changes required and trouble experienced in building the item; the comments of the toolmaker, inspector, and user; and the ability of the item to perform its function.
