Eaton Corporation, Utility Inverters, Electrical Sector, Mississauga, Canada 20013 – Present Lead Mechanical Engineer

Led and managed numerous Solar and Storage Inverter development projects that were successfully launched by utilizing DMAIC methodology to identify, analyze, improve and implement cost reductions, design and productivity improvements in a production environment.

Planned and effectively coordinated all facets of projects, including project scope, requirements gathering, workflow prioritization and testing activities with outstanding “on time, on budget and on scope” product delivery results

Integrated Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) techniques and continuous improvement activities such as Quality Function Deployment (QFD) and Design Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (DFMEA), which resulted in 30% reduction in new product development cycle

Designed, developed and deployed Pressure Stabilizer Unit (PSU) to address cooling system pressure drop issues in already installed solar inverters which resulted in 75% reduction in maintenance and warranty costs

Led & supervised Eaton’s Computer Aided Engineering team in order to perform state of the art seismic simulation analysis which successfully replaced the expensive shake table test with cost savings of $300000

Designed, analyzed and optimized solar inverter’s cooling system by performing detailed CFD analyses which eventually improved the overall thermal performance by 35% TRENCH GROUP- a SIEMENS company, Toronto, Canada 2001 – 2013 Senior Mechanical Design & Seismic Specialist -R & D Department In charge of mechanical design and structural analysis for new instrument transformers including the award winning capacitor voltage transformer (CVT) line up, gained “SIEMENS Top smart product Development Award 2011”.

Implemented advanced Finite Element Analysis (F.E.A) methodology to evaluate and optimize designs which significantly eliminated the need for physical prototypes and provided 60% reduction in R & D costs 2


Created and approved seismic qualification reports for new and existing transformer designs which provided technical and marketing advantage for the product lineup

Supervised seismic qualification projects at Shaker table test facilities by composing test plans and seismic test witnessing which resulted in outstanding sales growth of about 80% in seismically active markets Celestica International Inc., Toronto, Canada 1998 – 2000 Automated PCB Repair Specialist
