Ten years of experience in Facilities layout and design. Beginning in 1982 supported Trident II production equipment installation and factory rearrangement while continued Trident I production. Part of a team that resulted in a $10M cost savings due to eliminating the need for a separate (already planned) new building for Trident II production. Experience with MS project for tracking schedule and cost. Cost Account Management experience with Glast program radiator manufacturing effort. Worked to upgrade B/182 Chemical Processing to City of Sunnyvale Title 20 requirements. Worked closely with LM Maintenance crafts to maintain production. Twenty years' experience supporting manufacturing precision parts and assemblies. Solid background in Quality, production planning, ISO compliance, and FMEA use. Proven skills in managing production projects, including training and direction of manufacturing personnel, process simplification and standardization. Experience with production of detailed production plans. Provided complete MRP support using SAP (and other in-house tools). Cost Account Management controls, Quality tracking including MRB cause corrective action and disposition implementations. Experienced with GD&T use, and inspection. Extensive experience with inspection plans to meet customer requirements. Experience with FMEA analysis and implementation of results to improve facility and processes. Supported Six Sigma teams for manufacturing processes. All production operations are planned and tooled for personnel use and product safety. Experienced working with teams including design, quality, materials and customers.
