Six Sigma Green Belt certified graduate student in mechanical engineering with experience in machine design, quality control and manufacturing

Proficient in German, skilled in CAD, CAM, lean manufacturing, and rapid prototyping EDUCATION

M.S. Mechanical Engineering Michigan Technological University, Houghton, MI GPA: 3.57 Expected Graduation: May 2018 B.S. Mechanical Engineering University of Pune, India GPA: 3.8 Graduated: June 2016 WORK EXPERIENCE

Daimler Trucks North America, Fort Mill, South Carolina Continuous Improvement Intern – Operations Excellence Department January 2018-Present

Developed Key Performance Metrics (KPIs), standards, and toolkits for 8 manufacturing plants avoiding expenditures of up to $960 per month

Increased Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) by 5% and reduced accidents on the shop floor by 7% by performing Total Productive Maintenance and safety audits for assembly processes at 5 manufacturing plants

Trained 5-9 shop floor employees per month in lean tools and management, reducing Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Recordable Incident Rate by 2% and Absenteeism by 4%

Achieved 13% reduction in non-value-added time by assisting the team with Steering Committee meetings, Value Stream Mapping, preparing Bill of Materials (BOM) and coordinating procedures for facility and equipment maintenance and modification Armament Research and Development Establishment, Pune, India Project Intern July 2015 to June 2016

Led a team of 3 to design and develop a nozzle and fin locking mechanism for the stabilizer unit of a medium range electronic counter-measure rocket

Reduced the weight of the stabilizer unit by 5.9% and avoided an expenditure of $68,000 per annum in manufacturing costs

Increased the Action Items Completed by 8% by supervising, troubleshooting and guiding the manufacturing process

Drafted the blueprints of the design in Solidworks with detailed representations to depict functional relationships of components and assembly

Inspected the quality and dimensions of the final product as per the drafted design and performed the appropriate heat treatment Michigan Technological University, Houghton, Michigan Graphic Designer May 2017-December 2017

Developed 2D and 3D renders using Adobe systems and translated concepts into working prototypes and final designs for manufacturing

Achieved 100% client satisfaction by optimizing designs for fabrication efficiency and working closely with other production teams to ensure design assets appear cohesive with video and photography output Abadi Lab - Michigan Technological University, Houghton, Michigan Graduate Assistant September 2017-December 2017

Performed statistical analysis and design of experiments on laboratory data using Minitab at Abadi Lab (Nanomaterials and Tissue Engineering Lab)

Assisted Dr. Abadi in graphic design, website design, data analysis and administration tasks PROJECT EXPERIENCE

CertainTeed Ceilings Corporation, L’Anse, MI October 2017-December 2017 Quality Engineering Project Intern

Improved Fissure/Hole depth measurement technique for ceiling panel inspection by performing Gauge R and R studies on 3 existing test methods

Implemented Statistical Process Control (SPC) charting with guidelines for operating control actions in Minitab

Identified root causes and proposed solutions for out-of-control measurements that saved $8300 in measurement costs over the next 2 years Application of lean manufacturing principles to a simulated LEGO starship factory January 2017 to April 2017

Analysed the factory using value stream mapping and theory of constraints to identify wastes

Implemented the DMAIC methodology, 5S, 8D, visual control, root cause analysis, standardised work, Process Failure Mode Analysis (PFMEA), poka-yoke (mistake proofing), levelled production, load levelling, cellular layout, JIT, Kanban, Kaizen and Single Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) to eliminate wastes

Redesigned the entire factory to achieve 142% increased production, 55% reduced manpower, 75% decreased value-added time and 39% decreased non-value-added time

Design and manufacturing of a prosthetic hand using Projet Multi Jet Printer 3600 January 2017 to April 2017

Designed and 3D printed a full and half scale adult prosthetic hand using Solidworks and tested for reliability for medical usage

Optimized the design for manufacturability in MeshLab, reducing the build time by 46%

Tested printer performance by comparing the surface finish and roughness of the full and half scale builds Finite element analysis of a ball and socket joint with a viscoelastic contact material September 2016 to December 2016

Implemented the 3D modelling and stress analysis of the joint in Abaqus CAE under various loading conditions by applying suitable constraints and boundary conditions

Reduced the stress concentrations in the joint by 57% in tension and 23% in compression COMPUTER AND TECHNICAL SKILLS
