Started my engineering career as an Applications engineer for a material handling company. Was promoted shortly after to Parametric Design engineer (software programming). This role allowed me to further develop as a professional. I learned to focus on the following: attention to detail, patience, customer interaction and support, how to adapt to new technologies and methodologies, good work ethic, and follow through. During these two roles I gained experience in manufacturing, bills of material, order processing, ERP systems, how to satisfy customer requirements, software programming, project planning/tracking and documentation, quality assurance, cross functional department interaction, and efficient work practices.
I then moved on to a new opportunity at a much larger fortune 500 company. My new responsibility was cost modeling and analysis for an advanced development group. This role quickly expanded to include advanced manufacturing support. Both of these skill sets were acquired while one the job. Both are enjoyable and both came naturally to me. In about a year I started to identify room for improvement in our advanced development group. The areas I focused on were inventory control and operations management. I have been able to convince management as well as team members of the benefits of these two areas. I was given the go ahead to focus on these two concentrations and continue to do so today. The main focus is on implementing an MRP system to support the teams efforts. Accurate BOM structures, job processing, inventory management, part procurement, cost modeling, and documented procedures supporting all these efforts have become my passion. This is where I am today.
