Manufacturing Engineering “All-Star” #61752

“Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than trying to solve them.”   Henry Ford

I love this quote from Henry Ford and appreciate it even more now as I got to see his problem solving tenacity first hand a few weeks ago at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI.  One of the exhibits featured the “kitchen sink” where he tested his first experimental engine in 1893.  His wife, Clara fed gasoline into the intake valve by hand while he spun the flywheel.  How’s that for trying to solve a problem?  Henry Ford’s “Kitchen Sink”

This leads me to an early career engineering “All-Star” we’ve recently recruited with experience working for a major manufacturer of off-highway and agricultural machinery. She hasn’t been using the “kitchen sink” to solve problems but has been putting her mechanical engineering training to problem solving use in a manufacturing engineering role.

The manufacturing engineering “All-Star” has had to use investigative skills to identify problems and determine root cause for quality related issues.  She’s recently used these problem solving skills to formulate quality plans for suspension and drivetrain components.

This engineering “All-Star” is currently employed yet on the “hunt” for a new engineering career opportunity that will allow her to apply her problem solving and technical skills while continuing to grow her engineering career.

Do you have a problem with your “kitchen sink” that needs solving?  Please give me a call or email to discuss how this engineering “All-Star” can help you solve your manufacturing engineering problems as we look ahead to the new year.
