Functie omschrijving

What are you going to do?

Translating of company goals and programme/product requirements into system design definition.
Such definitions include: a breakdown of the system into components, the component interactions and interfaces (including with the environment, especially the user), and the technologies and resources to be used in the design.

1. Performs/facilitates trade-off analysis between various system attributes and communicates
results; acts as the final single point of accountability for trade-off decisions
• Determine multiple design alternatives, assessing such alternatives based on all identified constraints (such as cost, schedule, space, power, safety, usability, reliability, maintainability, availability, and so on), and selecting the most suitable options for further design;
• Performing cost–benefit analyses to determine whether requirements are best met by manual, software, or hardware functions; making maximum use of commercial off-the-shelf or already developed components;
• A systems designer is expected to combine knowledge of both the design of the user's world and of (all potentially useful) engineering systems designs. The former is a joint activity with the user; the latter is a joint activity with the engineers;
• Project based activities.

2. Partitions proposed solutions into appropriate subsystems/functional decompositions
• Outline the overall system and interface with the users and stakeholders;
• The system architect should sub-allocate the system requirements to major; components or subsystems that are within the scope of a single hardware or software engineer, or engineering manager and team;
• The system architect will use a minimum of heuristics to ensure that each partition is well defined and clean of kludges, work-arounds, short-cuts, or confusing detail and exceptions.

3. Together with the appropriate technical experts, decomposes system architecture decisions into functional, hardware and software roadmaps
• Interfacing with the design and implementation engineers and designers, so that any problems arising during design or implementation can be resolved in accordance with the fundamental design concepts, and user needs and constraints;
• Align with hardware or software engineers to select components and to design and build all functions.
The system architect manages the aid of other specialists— in safety, security, communications, special purpose hardware, graphics, human factors, test and evaluation, quality control, reliability, maintainability, availability, interface management.

4. Reviews/controls/accepts the result of validation testing to ensure that final product performance is in lign with previously defined requirements
• Reviews/controls/accepts a set of acceptance test requirements, together with the designers, test engineers, and the user, which determine that all of the high level requirements;
• The system architect is principally reponsible for the acceptance test. It is the chief means by which the program lead will prove to the user that the system is as originally planned and that all involved designers and engineers have met their objectives.

5. Miscellaneous
• Interfacing with the user(s) and sponsor(s) and all other stakeholders in the Stoneridge organization in order to determine their (evolving) needs. Incidentally, the system architect will have customer contact;
• Give direction to the various levels of requirements, the domain, the viable technologies;
• Ensuring that a maximally robust design is developed;
• A good designer is the principal keeper of the user's vision of the end product— and of the process of deriving requirements from and implementing that vision;
• Links with and advises advanced engineering.
