**Job ID:** 55505BR


**City:** East Hartford


**State:** Connecticut


**Country:** United States


**Category:** Information Technology


**Job Type:** Full Time


**Description:**


Pratt & Whitney has created the next generation of forecasting systems.


Pratt & Whitney's Digital Transformation & Analytics organization has recently rolled out a major upgrade of our primary forecasting tool as well as a data warehousing system that will help provide improved data for the forecasting processes.


Key Responsibilities:

You will be a member of a small (12) person team responsible for the execution of a standardized forecasting process for the F100, F119, F117, and F135 engine programs. Members of the forecasting team use discrete event computer simulation and modeling techniques to conduct probabilistic fleet supportability assessments and probabilistic forecasts of jet engine and component failure/maintenance. This forecasting process provides long term estimates of engine maintenance and material required to support this maintenance.


You will learn the use of these state of the art tools and help the organization plan for the future based on the forecasts that you produce.


Your analytic, project management, and interpersonal skills will be critical for mining these forecasts for trends and biases.


Your technical skills and creativity will be needed to define metrics for measuring forecast accuracy and to recommend and implement process improvements.


Specific responsibilities include:

1. Define study variables,

2. Gather, clean and validate data,

3. Develop software simulation models of jet engine utilization and logistics support processes,

4. Analyze results to understand sensitivity to variables and evaluate support system performance,

5. Create recommendations for support system changes and optimization, and

6. Organize simulation results in effective presentations for customers and management.


Activities also include supporting members of Customer Support Engineering, Maintenance Services, and Reliability groups with ad-hoc studies and reports to understand the impact of field problems and engineering changes.


The position requires a strong understanding of the use and development of computer mathematical modeling processes as applied to simulation modeling and analysis. Strong documentation skills are critical. Familiarity with optimization is a plus.


You should have a strong, demonstrable ability with computer languages (C++, Python) and automation programs to extract and manipulate data (i.e. Excel, Access). You should be self motivated and capable of working independently as well as within a group environment.


Note: The final grade level for the position will depend on the experience and qualifications of the selected candidate.


**Qualification:**


+ Required

+ U.S. Citizenship.

+ C++, Python, [Discrete Event] Simulation, Modeling, Statistics, Queueing Theory, Optimization highly beneficial.

+ Strong analytical skills, including experience using Excel and at least one Database Management System, such as Access or Oracle, including automating processes using application code.

+ Preferred

+ Experience with MCA or other Supply Chain Management / inventory optimization.

+ Knowledge of jet engines as well as their maintenance processes.

+ Experience using USAF data systems, such as CEMS and REMIS.


**Education:** Minimum of Bachelors degree in Engineering (all disciplines), Operations Research, Computer Science, Mathematics/Actuarial Science or related field providing strong analytical skills is required. An understanding of statistical methods and databases is required.
