PIC control systems have components of regulatory and batch control, advanced process control, expert systems, DCS (Distributed Control Systems) Interfacing and training simulators. PIC's work process also involves staging and testing of its products with a dynamic simulator and the programming of same. PIC is involved in the production and development of many different control systems that are sold to external customers. Each member of the PIC Service Support Group has the responsibility for ongoing development of existing products and the support of the Project Engineering and Field Operating Service (FOS) Groups. Additionally, the development of control systems for new UOP processes are regularly undertaken by the group. The PIC department is accountable for the production and development of custom control systems based on PLCs and PCs that are sold to external customers.
Providing technical support to internal advisors and external customers for PIC control systems, via emails, phone calls, and/or site visits with occasional unplanned off-hours support.
Travel to customer sites for PIC control system power-up, commissioning, start-ups, and/or trainings.
Internal Training – lead, plan, coordinate and conduct training classes for entry-level rotational engineers covering control system hardware and software topics for PIC product lines and its applications.
Support UOP Initiatives and Sales Support / Business discussions for UOP New Product Initiatives (NPI) and After-Market Business (AMB) opportunities related to control system retrofits, upgrades, site services and/or spare parts.
Assist with, or execute independently, PIC software programming assignments and project deliverables within budgeted cost and schedule at the appropriate level of quality
Provide recommendations for Continuous Improvement of software/programs, project documents, service support and testing activities to improve the competitiveness of UOP PIC products
Maintenance and development of product line specific RAIL (Running Action Item List), operating manuals, standards (ISO-9001) and resources (coaching & training) so that PIC area can effectively transfer technology to the marketplace in a manner that maximizes value to UOP and to our customers
Identifying and executing opportunities for continuous work process and productivity improvements, for optimization, integration and better alignment of project deliverables and service support methods of multiple PIC product lines by maximizing efficiency through better methods, masters, systems, and tools; minimizing the costs and response times
Addressing root causes identified from Corrective & Preventative Action (C&PA) analysis and project postmortems, leading the discussions when required.
Regular reporting/escalation of high-risk items from assigned projects/tasks to leadership, and leading team meetings for status updates and triaging of the projects/daily tasks
Configuring/networking PCs, maintaining Virtual Machines (VMs) and control system hardware to allow simulation and troubleshooting of hardware and/or software for customer support
Ability to travel up to 15% annually to both domestic and international locations.
