Senior Valve Design and Product Lead EngineerCameron, a Schlumberger Company － Little Rock, AR
General Valve Plug Valve Technical Expert.
Point of contact for all technical
questions and requests from internal and external customers, including quality,
manufacturing, supply chain, assembly, testing, inside and outside sales, and
Lead Engineer for all Marketing and Technology projects.
Lead several concurrent
large scale projects, including a $3 million- 5000 engineering hour - new product
development project comprised of designing, testing, and moving new valve model
series into production (12 new valves and 'retro-fitting' 13 existing designs with
patented design improvements).
Project stage gates included individual valve and
concept design reviews, manufacturability reviews, supply chain cost analysis, quality
sample approvals, strain gauging, and product lifecycle testing.
include an average cost savings of 30% (netting an estimated $5 million in cost savings
each year), 25% weight savings and improved casting design for ease of foundry
production, along with complete industry defined fire safe and fugitive emission
Created the General Valve Design Manual - all-inclusive engineering report and
procedure (complete with automated workbooks) establishing a systematic and
consistent approach for designing new General Valve reduced bore plug valves.
Procedure also includes finite element analysis of all components for validation.
Created and maintained design files that analyzes and calculates the stresses, loads,
and overall structural integrity of all pressure containing and drivetrain components
for entire General Valve product offering.
Design files are the support documentation
used for validation during Industry audits to ensure any and all valve components
meet applicable industry standards requirements defined by ANSI, API, and ISO.
Handled the troubleshooting for field performance reports, including travel offshore
to a Norwegian drilling platform to upload new PLC program on prover loop skid.
Performed many advanced technical workups for sales orders, including new valve
sizes, system and drivetrain modifications, seismic calculations, and valve
certification testing (fire safe and fugitive emission compliance).
