SUMMARY OF KEY STRENGTHS • 5S Implementation • Benchmarking • Bill of Materials Management • Capital Planning and Justification • Continuous Improvement • Drawing Specification Analysis • Auto Cad Design and Layout • Best Management Practices • Business Planning • Champion Agent for Change • Corrective Action Planning • Earned Value Management
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS Examined individual work in process levels, required operators, individual work station inventory levels and different process work space requirements to develop diversified continuous improvement teams and project plans. Coordinated maintenance changes, monitored implementations and reported efficiency level increases to executive management. Result: Improvement activities reduced work in process, needed operators and floor layout footprint by 50%, reduced work station inventory by 70% and product defect rate by 10%. Evaluated injury/illness data and cross referenced ergonomic rating analysis data. Developed and directed project improvement priority sheet and project plan to address areas of concern. Result: Process improvements facilitated through internal maintenance shop and outside vendors achieved 86% reduction in injury/illness reports and lost work days as well as directly increased operator moral through employee idea empowerment.

Result: System reduced the floor layout requirements by 50% and reduced product change-over rate by 70% that allowed the current facility to meet its production capacity within the same physical location, saving approximately $2M. Researched and analyzed different production board filler materials to implement production board filler prototypes. Developed and monitored formal reports and presented to executive management. Result: Detailed the filler material extending the board life and saved 75% of current board consumption rate. Analyzed product specifications to ascertain customer deliverable needs and coordinated vendor efforts to achieve desired packaging results. Prepared and facilitated engineering change notices for product launch, then managed bill of material data to account for routing/traveler procurement. Result: Designed packing materials protected the products that reduced product defects by 50%.
