As a system architect you are technical end-responsible for the product design. Based on the requirements, the system architect creates a balanced system design by defining product internal and external interfaces and behaviors together with other lead-engineers based on feasibility, cost, manufacturability, testability, etc. In the detailed design phase of the project, the system architect continuously keeps the holistic view on the system during reviews and daily discussions with team-members. The system architect identifies risks and defines actions to mitigate these risks within the project. Together with the project manager, the system architect is the main point of contact with the customer to discuss the technical challenges encountered during the design.
