Project Team LeadUniversity of Michigan - New York
Led a team of five students to enter AIAA competition to design a hybrid-electric regional aircraft for entry into service in 2030, with the goal of minimizing the direct operating cost of a 400-mile mission.
Utilized multidisciplinary integration of aerodynamics, performance, stability and control, propulsion, structures and aeroelasticity in the form of a 50-page report and 9% scaled, 3D-printed model.
Selected Client Engagements Operations Process Improvement - Major Commercial Airline (Hong Kong) Current project - Developed a process map of all ground time operations while aircraft are parked at the gate.
Currently conducting time studies of each activity and will simulate the processes using Excel and Simio software.
The ICF team plans to use Lean principles and the simulation results to form recommendations to optimize ground time operations.
Market Due Diligence - Large Private Equity Firm (Connecticut) Assisted with due diligence of the firm's aerospace client.
Profiled the market, assessed competitive position, analyzed engineering, operations, supply chain capability, and provided revenue forecasts.
Evaluated recent acquisitions and prospects for M&A growth and value creation.
Operational Due Diligence - Private Equity Firm As part of a two person team, provided operational due diligence for the client as part of their evaluation of two aerospace machine shops for potential acquisition.
Toured the shop and led the analysis with respect to machine shop capacity, utilization, and efficiency levels.
Analyzed company financial statements to provide key operational metrics and assessed staffing and facility efficiency levels.
Resulted in ~30% inventory reduction at one of the shops.
Very positive response to the final report resulted in securing an additional project (of similar nature).
Manufacturing Cost Assessment & Titanium Market Sizing - Startup 3D Printing Company (Norway) Performed a value chain analysis of the current Titanium component manufacturing process for a client who plans to enter the aero-structures market with a proprietary additive manufacturing DMD technology suitable for Titanium parts in a 90cm x 60cm x 30cm envelope.
Conducted interviews at manufacturing shops to obtain estimates for various processes / treatments assuming production rates of 10 units / month and 40 units / month.
Also led the analysis in sizing the addressable market for the client's current-generation machine.
Client found the results highly valuable and is now collaborating with the ICF team to create investor memo's and board presentations.
Growth Strategy - Propeller MRO Facility (Illinois) Built a global propeller MRO forecasting model with detailed costs of various subcomponents of propeller repair (hub, actuator, blade repair) to help client assess their competitive position.
Interviewed turboprop operators to determine key buying factors and best practices for propeller support.
Profiled the propeller repair market and identified strategic alternatives.
Analyses and findings enabled the client to secure two major RFP's to become the global center of excellence for Hamilton-Sundstrand propeller repair.
Component MRO Market Analysis - Large Independent MRO Provider (Pennsylvania) Identified growth opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region for the client's Singapore MRO shop.
Led the analysis in determining client's current & forecasted market share in the region.
Recommended additional operators and components for client to target.
