I have also attended many short update classes too numerous to list in fields I am interested in or work related.
My experience as an assembler and training as an Instructor in Work Place Organization
and Problem Solving is unique. I have the ability and training to set up a work station in an
effective and efficient manor that can speed production, increase quality and do it safely.
There were six of us given the task of organizing and designing the WPO class known as
Job Scrolling. We learned how to set up a stationary work station, and a moving line work station. This enabled the person doing the job to work efficiently with little wasted motion, and effectively so that it was ergonomically easier and safer.
Problem Solving classes were organized with 4 to 10 persons to solve a problem that was
a top priority to quality. We were given the problem and went out onto the assembly line with the tools and resources to solve that problem. We then made a presentation to Management on what we found and how we solved the problem. I don’t know of any problem we couldn’t find a root cause for, and a way to cure it.
My last assignment with GM was Dynamic Vehicle Testing and Repair. This entailed
driving the vehicle over a pit, where I aligned the front end, aligned the headlights, and
electronically tested the electrical systems. I then drove it onto a dynamometer where I drove up to 70 MPH where it was electrically and mechanically tested for any running problems. Because of my ability and background in mechanics I was able to diagnose problems that others could not.
I enjoy working, and I like working with people. I would like to work for a company that can
use my talents and abilities to help the company grow and help the people around me work in a safe secure environment. I have a working knowledge and some computer skills in Microsoft Word, Excel, & PowerPoint.
I have my own work shop with Air Compressor, Table saw, Radial arm saw, Drill press, Scroll
Saw, and a good complement of hand tools and hand held power tools. I added 1000 sq feet to the first house I bought and went from 500 sq ft to 1500 sq ft and 1 bedroom to 4 bedrooms. I have built a number of various toys and home projects over the years that have brought much joy and happiness to me and my Family and friends.
I have a full set of automotive pneumatic and hand tools that I repair and maintain my 2010 GMC pickup and my wife’s 2006 Malibu Maxx myself.
My wife and I raised 6 sons and 1 daughter we can be proud of, who have given us 24
grandchildren. Of all that I have done, this one is the most important one, and the one I am most proud of.
