Job description and responsibilities:
Adaptive Resources provides high-level process design, analysis and
optimization solutions to the manufacturing industry with a focus on
utilizing advanced control designs to deliver desired business results.
These business results include helping the manufacturer improve
quality, productivity, throughput, efficiency while reducing costs,
energy usage and wasteage. The job responsibilities include conducting
an audit of the manufacturing facility, analyzing the process design,
procedures, operations and real-time data. As part of the data
analysis, apply knowledge of basic heat transfer mechanisms, transport
mechanisms, science, chemistry, physics, metallurgy etc. to define a
sub solution space in order to identify the opportunities for
improvement. Once an opportunity is identified, conduct a design of
experiments to collect process data within the entire solution space,
utilize basic engineering skills to identify a feasible sub solution
space, create static and dynamic process models and design a custom
advanced control solution that optimizes the process.
AR has a proprietary modeling, simulation and model-predictive control
technology. Learning and applying this technology is a key part of the
job description.
Ideal Candidate:
The ideal candidate would be a chemical engineer with extensive
knowledge and experience in process controls. The candidate would have
experience working in the plant either as an employee of manufacturer
or as a provider of services. The candidate would have experience in
data analysis, modeling and simulation. The candidate would have
experience designing and implementing advanced control strategies using
different control technologies such as PID, MPC, Neural Networks, Fuzzy
Logic etc. The candidate would have strong technical writing skills and
good inter-personal skills.
Candidate must live in Pittsburgh Metropolitan area. Relocation
expenses are negotiable.
Should be able to travel 50% or more.
Salary: Commensurate with knowledge and experience.
