Our clients Enterprise Technical Services is the subject matter expert center for engineering at Suncor. This group is responsible for developing all technical standards and procedures as well as supports projects with resources.
This person will be joining the I&C team and will be doing 50% projects and 50% standard writing.
They currently have 60 active projects in the team's portfolio. This person would be assigned 3-4 projects to own.
- Upstream type projects including:

Three main areas -
- Support technical writing and revision of I&C Technical Specifications
- Support development of Automation Health Assessment Processes
- Support development of Wireless Technical Specification
An example of the technical standards they have committed to developing this year include:
- Fiber testing QC/QA
- License frequency radio system
This will require them to use their technical expertise to lead the development of their assigned standards, and strong facilitation skills to collaborate with a variety of stakeholders to get input and buy-in. Everyone involved will be doing it as a side project, so will need a lot of encouragement to ensure they stay on task. They will also need to be competent at technical writing as they will be owning the document.
Automation Health Assessments is reviewing the overall health of the systems to figure out if there needs to be maintenance on them. Developing the process will be figuring out what the right way of deciding if the system is healthy or not. Understanding the economic drivers of a project is important here - ie. understand that if they spend money to improve production - what the financial impact would be of that... useful so they can build in to when they would want/need to improve the systems and when it would not be money well spent.
Wireless technical specs will require someone with implementation experience.
