Worked with end user customers, to establish on-site reliability improvement practices for covered equipment. Supported eight different plants (Arboris and Kraton in Savannah, Symrise and Pinova in Brunswick, Symrise and IFF in Jacksonville, Nutrien in White spring and Kraton in Panama City). For all these accounts, I am responsible for continuously updating (equipment management software/ Computerized maintenance management system) as necessary to monitor and evaluate the status of rotating equipment. I do oversee the mechanical seal conversion process, including measurement, design, delivery, installation and operation.

• Surveyed all my accounts equipment and managed the technical data on Flowstar (CMMS).

• Analyzed failed equipment, then provided written reports to the customers with recommendation

• Used six sigma tools and problem-solving skills to help with the bad actors for each plant

• Used PARETO, FMEA and Matrix XY to prioritize the recommendations implementation and showed MTBF increase quickly.

• Organized and ensured monthly bad actor meetings to maintain visibility and focus.

• Recommended solutions to the customer for better reliability and efficiency. Based on the ROI, some solutions saved the customer up to $1000000 including down time.

• Increased the MTBR by solving the top failures.

• Coordinated projects between the sales Engineer, our pump distributor and the customers

• Developed new seals designs using EIS (Engineering Information System)

• Quoted new seals and pumps for custom applications.
