To use the Quality Assurance/Business tools and skills gained from practical experience to ensure a company meets their customers’ needs and requirements in a cost effective manner
I have been in the Quality field for several years, primarily in the close tolerance machining industry. The industries have been aerospace, automotive and general machining (job shops)
The experience involves both hands on inspection up to training subordinates in the methods used for efficient and reliable measurement techniques (both open plate set ups and CMM).
Expert in the interpretation of most industry specifications, including ASME Y14.5 Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
Trained facilitator in Advanced Product Quality Planning
oProcess Flow Charting
oValue Stream Mapping
As a Quality Engineer in commercial industries, I have reduced inspection costs by reducing final inspection and incorporating in-process inspection by both inspectors as well as certified operators.
Tracking and review of measurement data to determine (and correct, when necessary) trends of product conformance
Facilitation of RCCA teams
Expert at ISO 9000 and other Quality Management Systems including, but not limited to:
oProcedure development (systems and product) and approvals
I always review the procedures, work instructions, etc.; with those intended to use them. This is in order to ensure the documents are understandable and efficient for the users. This also aids in acceptance of those documents, as the users are part of the decision making.
oCorrective Actions and Preventative actions (both systems and product)
oSupplier Management and Development
