Supported the design, development, and testing of prototypes. Troubleshoot new designs and developed reliability improvements for existing designs to iteratively improve prototypes under DFM guidelines in order to bring products to production. Participated in the development of product specifications and requirements documents. In addition, supported and created mechanical drawings, bills of materials (B.O.M.) and prepared Engineering Change Proposals (ECPs). Prototype Shutoff Valve: • Researched shutoff valves, in order to improve functionality and reduced piston vibrations. • Designed and built prototypes from newly conceived concepts using rapid prototyping manufacturing. • Rendered inventor parts, assemblies, and drawings for prototypes and fixtures. • Tested and analyzed prototypes for reliability, functionality, and design validation. Supported the development and implementation of new manufacturing equipment to improve build process time while managing, directing, and finalizing projects within delivery time, budget, and scope of objectives. Communicated effectively with vendors and suppliers to procure, manage and update the submittal process. Prepared equipment delivery logs and track status of orders. Resolved project issues and minimized risks by developing risk mitigation plans, while effectively reporting projects status to stakeholders. Production Line Development for CLX Residual Chlorine Monitor: • Assisted in Kaizen investigation on CLX production line, in order to develop an optimal production workstation. • Arranged production workstations and equipment in a sequence that supports a smooth flow of materials and components • Reduced waste and optimized productivity through 5S methodology, by organization of tools and materials. • Actions resulted in increased production from 2 units per day to 6 units per day and a build time reduction of 62%.
