  • Monitored installation of materials and parts for compliance with company drawings and standards in conjunction with factory personnel
  • Provided technical engineering support to factory personnel , resolving design defects, drawing inconsistencies, manufacturing methods and specific machine/tooling operational problems
  • Identified resources and requirements for incoming custom projects, streamlining customer submittal drawing process
  • Used product rationalization and design of manufacturability methods (DFM), simplifying higher volume product lines, resolving and implementing cross-part utilization between these product lines
  • Assisted in developing and implementing all engineering department operating procedures in accordance to ISO 9001 8.3 "Design and development of products and services" for yearly audit compliance
  • Supervised and trained staff of 3-4 designers in accordance to company design standards in product design, fixture design, drawing layout, and design intent
  • Decreased engineering drawing lead time from 8 days to 3 days by updating submittal drawing procedures and eliminating non value added time by improving designer workload priorities.
  • Developed new internal engineering change request procedures (ECR), resulting in decrease in backlog of internal change request, therefore improving fabrication drawing quality and reducing assembly non-conformance
  • Identified problems using continuous improvement tools (Root Cause Analysis, Check Sheets, 5-whys) to fix defective, damaged parts/assemblies, resulting in decrease in sheet metal scrap and improving product quality.
  • Supervised new product development and introduction of prototypes for new refrigeration/wine equipment (HVAC)
  • Develop and implemented productivity metrics for designer productivity using data from workload schedules , creating customer drawing "takt" time , allowing to visualize submittal drawing lead time
