Manufacturing Engineering, “All-Star” Candidate, Injection and Blow Molding #61295

“Pain makes people change.”

This week’s manufacturing engineering “All-Star” candidate well understands our Motivational Monday quote that “pain makes people change.”  In a manufacturing environment any production issues typically create a lot of pain.  He currently works in a high volume injection and blow molding production facility.  He was feeling a manufacturing related pain in one of the plant’s injection molding cells that had run out of production capacity.  This lack of capacity was the pain he needed to identify changes to improve the process and increase capacity.  By adding automation and vision systems along with a new case erecting system, he was able to increase production capacity for this key item and eliminate the pain.  

Ongoing poor quality on another key outsourced component was the pain he needed to change to insourcing production of this key part.  He led this manufacturing project from cradle to grave including cellular layout, mold tooling design and qualification, and factory acceptance testing.   By changing the source of this item, our manufacturing engineering “All-Star” was able to eliminate the pain related to poor product quality while reducing lead times.

Do you have any manufacturing pains that could be addressed by hiring an engineer who will make manufacturing changes and process improvements in your plant?  This Manufacturing Engineering “All-Star” is on the hunt for the right next career opportunity where he will grow professionally by driving manufacturing change and working to reduce manufacturing pain in your facility.
