Professional Experience & Accomplishments

Junior Production Engineer - Jaya Fabricators – India June/2015 –July/2016

Analyzed requirements for fabricating main girders, including evaluating stability, deck placement sequence, plate sizing, flange sizing, and welded connections, while ensuring alignment with customer specifications.

oIdentified machinery, equipment, tooling and labor capacities for the parts to be fabricated.

Innovated a proper welding sequence that prevented distortion of parts, achieving an 18% rework reduction.

Established a new inventory storage site in close proximity to the shop, which reduced travel time by 60 mins/shift; also, implemented a material handling trolley that streamlined transport of girders between shops reduced wait times by 46%.

Reviewed Process Charts and BOM for Design for Manufacturability of materials, tools and equipments.

Conducted time study of the assembly operations using MTM-B standards.

Manufacturing Engineer - JJE Pvt. Ltd. – India November/2014 – April/2015

Collaborated in implementing Kaizen improvements to the factory’s material flow in support of a Lean manufacturing initiative, instituting cellular manufacturing designed production cells that reduced setup time (50%), WIP and lead time from 3 days to 1 day.

Developed a standardized welding sequence for fabricating circular parts, inspecting the structure after each welding sequence to ensure dimensions complied with the tolerance limit of 1-2mm.

Planned the order of assembly, testing and inspection of valves.

Quality Engineer - V.S. Industries – India April/2014 – July/2014

Diagnosed problems in machining operations through root cause analysis, 5 Whys evaluation, Fish-bone diagramming, and VSM in the pursuit of Six Sigma-compliant manufacturing.

Accomplished a $4,200 cost reduction monthly by establishing an appropriate tool room as well as fabricating an improved material handling system for ease of loading finished jobs.

Led an automated hydraulic TIG welding project to improve operation time of the welding process, which successfully increased the production rate by 17% and justified the capital allocated for the project with higher capabilities.

Select Graduate Projects

Destructive Testing of Catapult May/2017 – June/2017

Performed regression analysis on the design of a catapult by developing factorial design in Minitab; evaluated results in order to identify significant factors and their interactions.

Continuous Improvement in Welding Process September/2016 – December/2016

Performed cost analysis and VSM of conventional TIG welding versus K-TIG welding, ultimately utilizing K-TIG welding, which successfully reduced operating time 76%, setup time 80%, and overall cost 87%.
