Engineering Designer

Honeywell International Inc.
  • Provided detailed and cost-efficient HVAC, integration and energy conservation control solutions to over 70 North American projects to date with 100% customer satisfaction.
  • Proposed and submitted AutoCAD hardware designs that comply with site specs, construction plans and industry standards (UUKL, UL, ASHRAE etc).
  • Wired unique control systems by utilizing circuit theories and relay logics to ensure proper communication channels and signal to devices are achieved.
  • Performed parts rationalization with quality and value engineering in mind, generated more than 20% cost saving from sales estimates on average.
  • Recommended revisions to proposed sequence of operation based on engineering principles (fluid/thermodynamics) and costs (energy/budget) for full scope compliance.
  • Programmed logical controllers (PLCs/DDCs) of various product lines, optimized coding with install and customer user ergonomics in mind.
  • Excelled in process driven environment, led numerous initiatives such as tool revamping, Continuous Improvements team and user feedback database. Recognized by Honeywell with multiple "Bravo" awards for the effort.
  • Provided 3rd party support to outside designs by participating in high level QCs as well as on-site troubleshooting and installation.
  • Maintained good relationships with project managers, technicians and customers. Effectively communicated with team lead and co-workers to balance project deliveries.
2010 - 2011

Mechanical Designer

Dominion Voting Systems
  • Under supervision of engineers, maintained and revised SolidWorks databases.
  • Employed Design of Experiment, tolerance analysis and FMEA to track down the root cause of machine failures and implemented corrective actions.
  • Analyzed assembly drawings to resolve assembly defects, greatly reduced cracked scanner glasses as a result of overly tight tolerances.
  • Fabricated test jigs and fixtures for use in controlled engineering testing environments. Standardized and documented testing procedures for repeatability and accuracy.
  • Used parametric design and mock ups, piloted the ballot box re-design project in a bid to expand its holding capacity of various paper sizes by more than 300%.
  • Spearheaded prototyping builds by order, assemble and rework 19 fully functioning test units from scratch in less than 3 weeks for internal use.
