I have Project Management experience in concurrent engineering and management of cross functional teams (including suppliers) created to develop new processes which through rigorous testing and measurement are known to meet all customer expectations and requirements including visual and surface finish requirements. These requirements were audited by the customers Quality Engineers and have met their requirements. Through concurrent engineering product development cycle times have been reduced. I have managed many new manufacturing processes and new model changes from concept to delivery including packaging.
Through structured program management requirements, period audits and checklists new processes are accomplished in remarkably short time lines and right the first time. Projects have design reviews including reviewing of lessons learned from the previous projects. The need for poka-yokes are reviewed and included in the initial designs. Through creation of Control Plans, Design Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (DFMEA's), Process (pFMEA)', Machine (mFMEA's) and Logistic (lFMEA) it is possible to plan for potential failures and opportunities for failures and reduce much waste in the process . All designs, processes and cycle times, fixtures, gages, and etc were validated to meet all intended requirements. Customer key characteristics are evaluated and included in the Control Plans, Work Instructions, and process data sheets including quality requirements.
All processes have signed process control documents, work instructions, training matrix, TPM documents and safety checklists available at each process. Each process in validated for cycle time, ergonomics, safety, reproducibility, and repeatability. All calibrated equipment are evaluated for drift over time (TBC) Time between Calibrations, and (MTBF) Mean Time between failures. All poka-yoke sensors are validated and maintenance personnel are included in the training matrix.
All new processes are validated against the original cost estimates and periodically reviewed. Since customers are expecting to see process improvements in new processes leading to a price reductions these considerations are reviewed in new contracts in detail. These expectations include new process ideas to improve chronic process problems leading to customers complaints. This then leads to a reduction in scrap and rework costs. This is the impact point of incorporating completed six sigma programs that can affect manufacturing costs and improve ability to obtain new contracts
Personnel from the( APU) business units were included in the cross functional teams. Operators were used for the run off of new equipment and fixtures and there suggestions were incorporated into the equipment and fixtures before shipment of the equipment. Safety engineers completed safety check lists before shipping.
ISO 9000 (Quality Management Systems) and TS 16949 ( Environmental)audits were conducted periodically to ensure compliance to customer and regulatory agencies requirements. Also supplier quality audits were conducted and PPAP requirements were followed closely for new products and processes.
Thank you for reading this cover letter and I am looking forward to discussing this position with you in detail.
I have experience in manufacturing plant design and expansions including contracting Architects, plating and boiler installations, heavy duty machines with foundations and use of rigger companies for movement by low-boy trucks or by rail. I have supervised Engineers, Tool makers, fabricators, machinists, and inspectors.
