Recently graduated with a Master's Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Tech University

Methodology

I believe in strengthening the basics. With strong basics, concepts are much easy to understand and implement. I try to keep my teaching approach casual by providing handouts and flash cards for quick learning. I try to make my class interesting my using live presentations and audio visual aids.

Background

I have been giving private and group lessons since last four years. I have been recently asked to work from home because of the pandemic and have much free time on my hand. I am trying to put that time to good use by giving affordable lessons.

SEAGRAVE FIRE APPARATUS, WI Jan 2020- Aug 2020
Manufacturing | Process Improvement | Design Co-Op
• Miller Perform Arc 750 S Robotic Welder:
 Designed Fixtures and BOMs (SolidWorks), manufactured the parts using Laser cutting and Brake Press and assembled fixtures using TIG welding.
 Fixtured the part on Siegmund robotic welder table and programmed the robotic arm using the teaching pendant to weld (tack/ fillet) at desired locations using suitable welding parameters (Current, Voltage, Speed).
 Increased the efficiency of the welding operation from 6hrs to 1.5hrs – 75%.
• Developed Value Stream Maps and Time Standards (Microsoft Visio) for the manufacturing processes to find bottlenecks, develop production schedules and to reduce cycle time and takt time (FIFO and Heijunka tools used).
• Audited safety in Fabrication booths using Design failure mode and effect analysis (DFMEA), found the least safe process and implemented 5S and Visual Management. Implemented Kanban system to improve manufacturing efficiency by 8%.
• Established the root cause of daily scrap produced in the Fabrication department, implemented a corrective action for the process (SPC and Shewhart control charts used). Helped save the company 25% in scrap losses.
• Documented Standard Operating Procedures and Inspection checklists by auditing manufacturing processes for cab weld, body weld, robotic welder and assembly areas.
• Acquired sub-assembly parts for the Fabrication Department using ERP- AS400 for process control.
