What to Expect

As an Advanced Automation Engineer within our mixing team, you will work closely with the production and design teams to develop, configure, optimize, and troubleshoot production systems and equipment. You will provide technical and engineering expertise for the implementation of process control strategies within the DCS and PLC systems, evaluate and resolve problems with existing process control systems utilizing vendor and/or maintenance support, when necessary, develop and configure changes to the existing process control system based on priority and need, and support day-to-day operations. This ensures that the process control system is effectively implemented to produce high purity battery materials, maximize system throughput, and productivity for safe and environmentally sound operations.

What You'll Do

  • Participate in initial equipment conceptual development and carefully balance product specifications, process requirements, layout complexity, cost, and lead-time limits.
  • Work closely with the process design teams on the content in process control narratives and process and instrumentation diagrams to ensure that the documentation is complete and comprehensive.
  • Maintain a strong emphasis on process improvement projects, customer- focused innovations, cost saving improvements, process optimization, etc. that not only enable a reliable and competitive manufacturing processes, but also provides needed data to support predictive maintenance strategies.
  • Develop and configure DCS and PLC logic and modify existing logic to optimize product quality, yield, throughput, process stability, and lower OpEx costs.
  • Develop code that is organized, structured, documented, maintainable and reusable.
  • Develop and configure new operator displays, and update existing displays, to improve overall usability, intuitive navigation, and operator effectiveness.
  • Apply advanced regulatory control strategies and model predictive control technology to solve complex process control issues.
  • Drive standardization, common approaches, and employ RAGAGEP across our Integrated Controls System assets. Close collaboration is expected with OT, IT, EH&S, and Sustaining Engineering.
  • Maintain and own spare IO lists, system architecture diagrams, and coordinate updates to loop sheets and P&IDs when necessary.
  • Manage electrical cabinet builds, field wiring, pneumatic and fluid plumbing
  • Manage suppliers during specification, design, buyoff and installation of automated manufacturing equipment.
  • Optimize and improve plant-wide control system/network health supervisory systems to minimize unplanned downtime and centralize plant performance monitoring.
  • Work collaboratively with Operations, Process Engineers, and other Advanced Automation Engineers to ensure that control strategies are functioning as designed and are achieving productivity and material quality targets.
  • Own plant wide control loop tuning and equipment/unit optimization.
  • Assist with the development of control system operator training.
  • What You'll Bring

  • Evidence of exceptional ability, including a strong understanding of engineering fundamentals and demonstrated ability to leverage this understanding to solve challenging technical problems.
  • 5+ years as a continuous process controls engineer in a chemical process design, or production environment, with demonstrated experience in the execution.
  • Experience participating in process hazard risk assessment reviews and HAZOPs.
  • Ability to interpret P&IDs, Loop Sheets, and Cause & Effect matrices.
  • Proficiency in optimizing, providing critical feedback, and defining controls methodologies towards process controls narratives defined between yourself and process designers.
  • Demonstrated experience programming DCS advanced regulatory control using function block programming (Emerson DeltaV).
  • Advanced proficiency with process loop tuning using proven methods.
  • Demonstrated experience programming PLC (Beckhoff / Code Sys platform) in SFC, Structured Text, or OOP compliant with IEC 61131-3 standards.
  • Demonstrated experience in configuring Human Machine Interfaces (HMI / GUI)
  • Proficiency creating detailed electrical SLD, Loop Diagram, and Multi-Line schematics in CAD (EPLAN preferred)
  • From this employer
