For training and development in various
phases of engineering work in office, sales, plant, field or lab-oratory,
performs various assigned tasks of comparatively low complexity,
normally assisting other engineers.
Assists in the design of new or revised
products, equipment, installations or processes, based on established
engineering principles to meet functional requirements or performance
specifications. Using a variety of standard engineering methods
and techniques, will usually handle design problems of moderate
complexity or assist more senior engineers to solve difficult problems.
in the accumulation and analysis of geological data, conducts geological
surveys and keeps up-to-date on current activities in the industry.
assigned duties associated with electrical layout design of projects.
These projects include complete substation and diesel station layouts,
proposals for the same and modifications to those stations. Will use
a variety of standard engineering methods and techniques and will
assume responsibility for moderately complex layouts.
a variety of engineering tasks including the development of plant
layouts, work methods and manufacturing processes; designing tools;
selecting, procuring and installing machines, tools and material-handling
equipment; and establishing standard time values for production and
Performs a variety of tasks such as
the preparation of simple plans, designs, calculations, costs and
bills of material, catalogues, in accordance with established codes,
standards, drawings or other specifications.
of limited scope and complexity, usually minor phases of broader
assign-ments which may include one or more of:
- The design
of components within the particular branch of engineering (civil,
mechanical, electrical, etc.) of a larger design project;
- The modification of tooling, plant
equipment, imported designs or prototypes of new development, to
permit economical manufacturing or to meet performance specifications
and requirements or serviceability;
- The design of ancillary parts,
not within the particular branch of engineering, or equipment pertaining
to the branch e.g. foundations and supports for heavy machinery,
transports for heavy machinery, transformer housings, etc.;
- Confers with shop and departmental
personnel while gathering information, seldom outside the company;
- May prepare reports such as equipment
surveys, cost estimates, process investigations, within the scope
of assigned work.
subsurface information on a current basis and suggests lease purchases
and geophysical programs to the immediate supervisor;
- Makes field
studies as assigned and prepares both surface and subsurface maps;
microscopic examinations of samples and cores of wells for stratigraphic
and reservoir studies;
with the accumulation and the analysis of geological data for an
exploratory and/or develop-ment drilling program;
- As requested,
guides the work and assists in the training of first year geologists;
the immediate supervisor to keep informed of current activities
in industry that might affect company performance.
engineering work includes:
preliminary, and detailed electrical layout, other than that performed
by Protection and Control, based on Assignment Sheets and one line
diagrams supplied by client;
with Civil Engineering Section to achieve compatibility of respective
specifications, usually for installation work;
information provided by contractors who are bidding on contracts
to ensure adequacy of proposals and recommending contract awards
based on that information, past experience with the contractor,
capability (equipment, etc.) and price;
complaints regarding design received from the field during construction
and from operating staff following construction, and making design
changes if justified;
design calculations as required, applying standardized details and
devising non-standard details as necessary;
manufacturers' drawings on request by the Equipment and Materials
Under general direction, makes independent studies, analyes, interpretations
and conclusions in one or a combination of the following assignments:
- Process Engineering - determines tools, equipment and dies
required for shaping, finishing and assembling an assigned product,
thus planning the sequence of operations;
- Machine and Tool Design - designs and develops machinery,
machine tools, gauges, dies, jigs, fixtures and special tools required
as most suitable to the prescribed volume of production, materials
- Gauge design - develops special gauges and instruments and
applies statistical methods in order to attain precision specified;
- Plant or Layout Engineering - arranges machines, lays out
plant facilities and set-ups to ensure the most efficient and productive
layout. Designs material-handling methods. Develops, designs and
recommends long- and short-term plans for maintenance, repair and
expansion of buildings, equipment and facilities including power
plant and utilities;
- Time and Motion Study - makes studies to determine standard
rates and eliminate waste of time, labour and materials;
- Quality Control - develops, recommends and administers quality
control techniques. Utilizes industrial statistics for the presentation
and analysis of quality control and other manufacturing data. Prepares
cost estimates, makes studies of feasibility and provides information,
advice and engineering assistance within the scope of assigned work.
Recommendations, Decisions and Commitments
Normally, decisions made will be of
a routine nature invariably having ample precedent or in line with
clearly defined procedures.
Recommendations are limited to the
solution of the problems rather than the end results. Work requires
accuracy in calculations, completeness of data and adherence to
prescribed testing, analysis, design or computation methods. Refers
unusual problems to more senior engineers. Errors in work would
usually be detected before results become serious.
limited to the solution of immediate problems relating to a phase
of a project. Decisions relate to the selection of data and the application
of techniques. Such judgments are normally made by following established
guidelines and practice. Refers unusual problems to a more senior
will include complete solutions within the scope of the job. Unusual
problems and techniques of a novel nature will normally be referred
to a senior engineer.
and decisions are usually based on operational experience. Work is
relied upon as sound and authoritative within the scope of an assignment.
Difficult, complex or unusual decisions are usually referred to higher
authority. Errors of judgement could cause serious loss of man-ufacturing
time and material.
