2.    Lead the effort for determining product and major sub-system performance requirements, identifying the necessary resources, and preparing development plans that accomplish product development tasks.
3.    Responsible for the complete design and development of major subsystems or significant portions of the product.  Considers the technical requirements for design activities, including loading (mechanical {stress, pneumatic, frictional, etc.}, electrical {electric potential, current carrying capacity, field influence}), user, environmental, performance (stress-strain limitations and requirements, cyclic stress, charge-discharge cycles, etc.), external (biocompatibility, shipping), and implements solutions that address these requirements.
