MURAT TERZİ September, ****


I am an experienced manager who worked in Automotive, Aerospace and FMCG

industries with different roles. Within my 21 years of experience; I took part in many

multinational projects consisting of teams from various countries.

Ever since I got promoted to Manager title in 2007, I have managed 50 people on

average in the companies I worked for. I interviewed and hired many staff including supervisors,

engineers, technicians and operators.

My background is mainly Quality and Lean Manufacturing as I was grown in Toyota spending almost 12 years of my career. TPM and Production Engineering Management were also some other fields I experienced. Moreover; Project and R&D Engineering were the areas I started up my career as a young engineer.

I have been certified and experienced in almost all of the QMS (ISO9001, ISO/TS 16949, AS9100) and other management systems (ISO14001 and ISO18000). I conducted several internal audits and was undergone many 3rd Party audits. I am strong at all IATF core tools (FMEA, SPC, MSA, APQP, PPAP) as well. I also used VDA 6.3 when I was working with customers like VW, AUDI and BMW.

Blue print reading, GD&T knowledge, fixture and gauging, injection moulding, vacuum moulding, sheet metal forming, welding, machining and high pressurized aluminum casting are the subjects that I experienced in detail throughout my career. In addition to that; NDT inspection, precise machining, Heat Treatment, Chemical treatment are the processes I have started to experience in Aerospace industry.

I have a good knowledge and practice on Lean Manufacturing concepts like JIT, Jidouka, Takt Time and Line Balancing, Kanban-Pull System, One-piece Flow, Poka-Yoke, Value Streamt Mapping, Kaizen, 5S e.g.

I am a good problem solver as I was taught A3 thinking in Toyota. Not only many problem solving projects succeeded in Toyota, but I also used several times 8D methodology to respond customers like PSA and Continental. I managed to complete one 6 Sigma Black Belt Project when I was working in FMCG industry.


I would like to share the above mentioned experience and qualifications with the global industry to serve the technology for better while gaining opportunities to improve myself further in many other aspects.
