Work Experience

Student Assistant, Data Management Department, Karmanos Cancer Institute May 2018 – December 2019

• Used Advanced Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Access to manage and maintain clinical trials data accuracy and confidentiality.

• Quality checked for incoming clinical trial data and reported issues to data managers.

• Improved logistics of CTO and reduced storage required for large documents by digitizing and sending offsite. Operations Engineer, Shreenam Industries July 2016 – June 2017

• Increased 15% productivity and 10% saving in material usage by participating in process improvement projects.

• Performed Lean Assessments, safety/ ergonomic audits, and organized 5S events throughout the plant.

• Helped convert 2 traditional assembly lines into one-piece flow cells which reduced work in process by over 40%, and reduced floor- space requirements by over 35%.

• Implemented Single-Minute Die Exchange (SMED) and reduced setup time by 13%.

• Created Value Stream Maps, Standard Work Charts, Process Flow Diagrams, and Time- Motion Studies (MOST).

• Verified and Updated documents like APQP, NCRs, FMEA, control plans, and work instructions.

• Educated manufacturing personnel in LEAN tools and techniques by participating in improvement workshops and cross functional team meetings.

• Maintained and updated Bill of Materials (BOM), Work Orders and Assisted in Inventory Management. Engineering Intern, Acme Tools June 2015 – May 2016

• Conducted Gemba walk, and time studies to balance and improve processes using tools such as Error Proofing and Quality at Source.

• Conducted 8-D study and performed Root Cause Analysis to analyze Non-conformances and quality issues.

• Used TPM and CAPA to reduce downtime which improved Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) from 71% to 74%.

• Integrated data and maintained Pareto charts for identifying quality issues and helped solve them to meet ISO quality standards.

• Monitored and maintained process capabilities through Statistical Process Control (SPC) and used problem-solving techniques to apply improvements.

• Identified and Reduced bottleneck cycle time by implementing Kaizen events. Engineering Projects

MRP Decision Support System Project Completed April 2019

• Developed a Decision Support System using MRP simulation. Created Forecasts, Master Production Schedule, Material Requirements Plan, Capacity Requirement Plan to analyze and maximize profits. Six Sigma Green Belt Project Completed April 2019

• Minimized rework cost and Improved Quality using Six Sigma Tools. Reduced Cumulative RFI rejection rate from 11% to 2%.

• Reduced Defects Per Million Opportunities DPMO from 95,000 to 18,000. Zingerman’s Cornman Farms Logistics Improvement Project (Lean implementation) Completed December 2018

• Used Value Stream Mapping and Root Cause Analysis to identify problems in logistics.

• Standardized work by making standard operating procedure (SOP) more accessible and created SOP in the form of cards carried on a lanyard.

• Improved use of time sheets by including time sheets with SOP cards and by replacing after each shift. Created A3 document. Honors and Activities
