Teaching Assistant- University of Houston, Houston, TX August 2017 - Present

• Taught over 150 students on engineering design on Solidworks 3D CAD software.

• Implemented innovative teaching methods to improve understanding on 3D Part modeling, 2D drafting, GD&T, Bill of Materials (BOM) and achieved 60% improvement in student performance. Vasantha Tool Crafts Pvt. Ltd, Hyderabad, India

Project Engineer November 2014 – January 2016

• Managed mold manufacturing process and testing by tracking the progress of projects and communicate via timeline system to customers ensuring the product quality and customer satisfaction.

• Undertook the responsibility to determine the optimum operational values of the mold based on cycle time using DOE.

• Created work instruction document (SOP) for shop floor workstations to reduce heavy labor turnover.

• Led CNC Milling line and CNC Sparking EDM line by interacting with operators to conduct quality checks daily on lots.

• Implemented electroplating process for cavity core components and conducted quality checks to understand bottlenecks

• Responsible for validating the quality assurance team reports generated with CMMs on finished parts on CP and CPK values

• Trained the new employees for design and 3D modeling operations and help them increase process knowledge.

• Responsible for identifying the major quality problems in the process, by incorporating pareto analysis to focus on fall outs

• Corrective action (CA) on root cause was implemented where it is identified by conducting detailed process walk, which improved throughput yield from 70% to 88%.

• Participated and Led in cross functional team kaizen for 5S, problem solving and standard work. Design Engineer May 2012 – October 2014
