Maxima Technologies, East Petersburg, PA

Process Control Engineer Internship, May 2008- August 2008

. Completed time studies of different manufacturing processes and

provided average times of production steps to management.

. Performed work sampling to determine factors preventing manufacturing

line from meeting optimal production goals.

PennDOT, Harrisburg, PA

Internship in Cement Testing Section, May 2007- August 2007

. Mixed cement samples submitted from contractors and performed tests

for water percentages and hardness to determine effectiveness for use

in roads.

Internship in Petrography and Concrete Section, May 2006- August 2006

. Sampled rocks and tested them for slipperiness, durability, and

strength to determine applicability for use in roads.


Sr. Project

Developed Arena Simulation Model for IIE 2009 National Competition

. Evaluated production operations, plant layout and manufacturing

process of simulated business. Used Arena to identify problem areas

that slowed production. Recommended changes to plant layout and

worker utilization resulting in about 600% increase in profits.

Current Industrial Engineering Methods

Applied lean concept to a clock factory simulation

. Participated in simulation of factory line with the goal of improving

production rate. Modified manufacturing line from a push system to a

pull system resulting in a reduction of work in process. Additionally

modified production layout and worker utilization.

Junior Design Class

Team project to redesign walker

. Evaluated potential problem areas and redesigned walker components to

increase user comfort and mobility.

Developed Arena Simulation Model for IIE 2008 National Competition

. Recommended changes to simulated evacuation procedures including

increase of temporary housing and streamlining of traffic flow,

enabling successful evacuation within time deadline.

Introduction to Engineering Class

Team project to design wheelchair ramp

. Discussed criteria with client, evaluated site location, determined

needed specifications and constructed ramp that met the client's
