RssLean Manufacturing / Manufacturing Engineer

I am looking for a job as a lean manufacturing engineer or supplier development engineer. Success happens because of the ability to bring the right ideas to the table and work with cross functional teams to get them implemented. I have a strong track record of doing this. Put simply, I have 24 years of hands-on experience in successfully implementing process improvements, cost reduction, quality assessments, and on-time product launches within manufacturing operations throughout North America and China. GM Purchasing has realized in excess of $ 60 million in savings as a result of my work along with successful product launches. Working with cross functional teams, all layers of management, and suppliers to create “Win-Win” solutions has been a major source of challenge and achievement for me. My success is due to an inherent ability to quickly learn manufacturing processes and effectively communicate strategies for improvement. My lean manufacturing knowledge, aggressive style, and solid communication skills will allow me to make an immediate contribution.
