Recently, tell me a problem you faced where you were unsure the answer. How did you research the problem and find a correct solution?
An operator brought me a drain valve that was failing testing, I inspected the component parts for non-conformance's, however the parts were good. Next, I reviewed the drawing and test procedure and had the operator perform the assembly process as I watched and the test the valve, the valve still failed test. I requested design engineering support, and as team the operator, manufacturing engineer, and design engineer, we concluded that the test procedure was vague and was open for interpretation which the operator thought was a failure. The test procedure was corrected to prevent the issue from returning.
What engineering skills have you developed or improved upon during the past year?
In my current position as manufacturing engineer and previously as a supplier quality engineer, I developed process engineering skills that give me a different perspective as how to create a product that meets all the customers requirements as fast as possible and ensuring that all documentation is in order with no discrepancies. From the supplier quality side, I developed the knowledge of quality clauses and their impact on components used at the top assembly level, ensuring customer requirements are flown down to our suppliers.
