Reduced external ppm on for company on 6M dollar account from 24564 ppm down to 5334 ppm in less than a year. The following year same account was reduced down to 2245 ppm. Reduced external ppm for Tier I medical product customer from 5600 ppm down to zero and maintained for over two year period.

Reduced internal scrap on assigned customer accounts using extensive root cause analysis targeting work cell design and product handling.

Incorporated Poka Yoke principles to identify and eliminate production process of non-conforming parts and assemblies.

Designed inspection fixtures for PPAP-FAIR and scheduled line inspection per control plan. Incorporated attribute gages - fixtures for line personnel allowing immediate identification of non-conformances. Established and lead Power Point training for quality issues, techniques, and vocabulary for production personnel resulting in reduction of external and internal ppm. Incorporated within program explanation and use of control plans, first piece samples, and understanding of work instructions. Upon completion of sessions production personnel were brought up to speed quicker with a higher confidence level of their work and ability to identify non conformances.
