BMW Mini E, AC Propulsion
During 2008 and 2010, I acted as the bench and dynamometer Test Engineer to fulfill the drive system request for the
global BMW Mini E fleet. My responsibilities included designing new equipment to simulate the vehicle inputs as well as
designing board level testers. In addition, I was in charge of troubleshooting components or units that failed during testing
and finding the root cause of why and how they failed. Further into the project, I became in charge of warranty support
for the Mini E fleet which expanded my responsibilities to tracking, investigation and reporting of failure modes.
Luxgen MPV, AC Propulsion
During 2009 and 2011, I became responsible for the testing department guaranteeing the quality of the products. I
created a database to track testing results to identify if there are variations in the power electronics. In addition, I was in
charge of educating Luxgen engineers about the Generation 2 drive system as they became AC Propulsion’s second
Foton Midi, AC Propulsion
During 2010, I was responsible for designing accessory products such as air conditioner controllers, cabin heater
switches and wiring schematics for the Foton Midi conversion which later on became a fleet of electric taxis that are
operating in Beijing, China. Currently, I am in charge of championing Global 8D analysis for failures that are occurring in
the field in Emotor Advance.
Generation 3 Air Cooled Drive System, Emotor Advance
Upon my arrival in Emotor Advance Beijing, I was assigned to the task of assisting the manufacturing and testing setup
of AC Propulsion’s Generation 3 Air Cooled Drive System. My tasks involved ensuring that documentations regarding
manufacturing are coherent, accurate and updated. Furthermore, I performed PPAP evaluation on subcontracted
component manufacturer
NEVS /SAAB 9-3, Emotor Advance
In early 2011, I was assigned to the task of being the liaison between Emotor Advance and NEVS for a prospective
Beijing electric taxi project. My responsibilities included evaluating customer requirements and advising both the customer
and AC Propulsion’s R&D team on which requirements are achievable. I was also involved in projecting manufacturing
capabilities and assessing resources needed as well as consulting on the vehicle conversion.
Generation 4 Liquid Cooled Drive System, Emotor Advance
In late 2011, I became in charge of all manufacturing related planning on AC Propulsion’s Generation 4 Liquid Cooled
System. The planning encompasses all aspects of manufacturing such as; quality plan, timing, facilities, capital requirement,
supplier and component sourcing, process control, risk management and training.
