. Interact with maintenance on down equipment to minimize downtime


> In-sourced blower assembly to better meet production's

changing needs

> Reduced insulation part numbers by cutting parts internally

> Assisted with launch of multiple lines moved from Mexico

> Assisted with plant efficiency improvement project line move

Manufacturing Engineer: S80 & SB

Genie Industries, Moses Lake, WA April 2007 -

July 2008

Provided the production line & fabrication weld cells with solutions

for assembly questions some of which required root cause analysis

on internally fabricated parts to eliminate reoccurrence by

installing a poke - yoke

Developed and implemented solutions to project requests and green

sheets (safety issues)

Updated, and improved Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's) along with

Standard Work

Wrote Engineering Change Request (ECR) proposals as necessary to

improve the process or eliminate waste (Muda) from the production


Executed Engineering Change Notice (ECN)

Worked closely with assembly operations and ensured proper procedures

were maintained

. Primary contact for US & Japan quality with GM Flint-Assembly

. Provided action plans to resolve assembly obstacles; initiated

problem resolution communication and follow-ups to implement

corrective actions

. Applied MOST to create work standards for all operations in Isuzu

Flint warehouse; in turn the information was used towards continual

line balancing improvement as well as evaluating the feasibility of

new work

. Created a more efficient work environment; continually improved

work cell layout and line efficiency to meet Takt time

. Established, tracked, and documented daily production requirements


> Developed layout and coordinated facility rearrangement to

create an additional 5000 square feet for a new assembly to

be added at our location

> Created a tooling file in Access database allowing more ease

and efficiency to track torque calibration dates along with

monitoring tool history to determine when tooling should be

replaced rather than repaired

> Conducted time studies for the line & sub assemblies which

then set the ground work for a cost reduction of labor

between Isuzu & TNT
