Position Summary

A Dimensional Control Supervisor "DCS" is responsible for the day-to-day management of the OII-MSD dimensional control program The DCS must have the ability to survey and process 3D-Data into usable information for requesting activity. This process starts with using laser trackers (Faro and API), Inca 2 and 3 V-Stars photogrammetry systems, total stations, cmm arms and laser scanners to survey piping, machinery components, and structure. Process data using Spatial Analyzer software and generate reports for the requesting activities. These reports may accept or reject components, structure, machinery installations, and piping bend data. Some surveys will require creating a model from actual ship or submarine drawings; this is completed with the Spatial Analyzer software or other Modeling Software. The DCS will be required to develop survey procedures (measurement plans) as required to be utilized when completing surveys.
