Reliability Engineer 4

Job description

Job Responsibilities

  • Predict, measure and analyze the reliability of mechanical designs, process specification and software programs for semiconductor manufacturing equipment.
  • Determine reliability of in service tools based upon quantitative field measured failure data and less quantitative quality metrics as measured by Lam Research.
  • Use advance statistical, probabilistic and forecasting methods to best quantify reliability of overall system.
  • Work directly with mechanical, electrical, process and software engineers to define reliability improvement plans, advanced testing methods such as HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing), and HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening).
  • Develop methods that allow for correlation of these accelerated life testing methods to actual expected in service lives.
  • Data driven reliability through AI/ML methods, Utilizing DOE, Optimization, and statistical methods to create predictive reliability models.
  • Stochastic optimization tools to bridge between simulation and experiments.
  • Teach classes within Lam Research in Reliability, FMEA and statistical methods.

Other Job Responsibilities

  • Advise design engineering on selection, application and test of electronic components and systems.
  • Recommend design or test methods and statistical process control procedures for achieving required levels of product reliability.
  • Determine reliability requirements of components and systems to achieve company, customer and any governmental agency reliability objectives.
  • Develop new acceleration techniques and analytical tools to assure the early identification of potential problems with new products, packaging, processes, and product reliability.
  • Make recommendations for changes in the selection and application of components and systems. May propose changes in design or formulation to improve system and/or process reliability.

Minimum Qualifications

  • PhD in Reliability Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or related fields with reliability and statistical emphasis is required.
