Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, MI 1976
TRW Automotive Holdings Livonia, MI 2007-2008
â€¢ Engineering support for the new business acquisition team during the TRW negotiations and launch of the multimillion-dollar Delphi foundation brake business. Identifying quality and manufacturing cost savings of 20%.
â€¢ Resident Engineer for the Braking System on GM Trucks (GMT360 and S-10), provided technical/customer support, authored all ECâ€™s, responsible for vehicle calibration/performance requirements through management rides, and release of the foundation brake and ABS components.
Robert Bosch, LLC Farmington Hills, MI 1996-2007
Manager, Quality Systems (2000-2007)
Hardware Development Manager (1996-1999)
â€¢ Lead Product investigator for corporate liability/high visibility defects following enactment of the federal TREAD Act. Challenges included 1) resolving the anomaly as quickly as possible; 2) meeting the federal government mandate for reporting potential defects; 3) creating preventive action processes to eliminate future occurrences of the anomaly. Addressing these procedural challenges involved leading a team of associates in document analysis, process mapping and creation of awareness training.
â€¢ The resulting process was instrumental in defending Bosch successfully in product liability cases. Improved efficiencies, team involvement and problem solving saved the corporation more than a billion dollars over 7 years.
â€¢ Spearheaded the development of a â€œnew product launchâ€ audit and design review processes, resulting in 25% improvement in customer audit scores (high 90-percentile range) and new business awards from the Japanese Original Equipment Manufacturers.
â€¢ Authored and facilitated training courses in quality analysis and control methodologies; collaborated with industry partners in developing the Problem Solving Bluebook for AIAG. This improved product development in North America, reducing the number of required design and process changes.
â€¢ Spearheaded development of a low-cost sensing system to distinguish between a child (under 12) and a small adult in the front passenger seat. Supervised an annual budget of $15 million and a staff of 23. This project coincided with development of the 3D camera, combined IR and ultrasonic sensor, and weight-based occupant sensing systems.
Saturn Corp Warren, MI 1986-1996
Senior Design Release Engineer (1986-1992, 1994-1996)
HVAC and Electrical Vehicle Systems Engineer (1992-1994)
â€¢ Released new products, including control algorithms, power-train devices and safety components, into the Saturn vehicle systems.
â€¢ Responsible for conversion of marketing specs to component specs, development of contingency plans as necessary, and coordination of associated testing to ensure vehicle quality.
â€¢ Notable accomplishments included 1) release of the first digital cruise control systems; 2) first global sourcing of all power train electrical components; 3) release of the first GM side air bag system; and 4) occupant protection systems which saved GM $450M over the 3-year air bag diagnostic module life cycle.
â€¢ Interfaced with various engineering groups to manage new model changes in the HVAC and Electrical Systems, resulting in 1) flawless launch of the 1993 and 1994 Saturn vehicles; 2) reduction in the electrical system cost by $135 per vehicle â€“ $25M annually; 3) improved JD Powers initial quality scores; 4) first use of ignition timing to reduce engine torque and achieve traction control; 5) first monitoring algorithm using the ABS wheel speed sensors.
Ford Motor Company Dearborn, MI 1977-1986
Product Release Engineer
â€¢ Management responsibilities included new product development, supplier development, and release of various power train components into the Ford system.
â€¢ Notable accomplishments included design of first smart junction box and integrated circuits for engine control units and ignition module.
