Also responsible for, a manufacturing engineer, and a components coordinator. When this employment commenced, I was operating on the Embraer thrust reverser doors cell. It was 21 units behind customer demand and virtually operating in cultural chaos. By helping to introduce change through continuous improvements, and stability through effective deployment of available labour, reduced overtime, and bell to bell working, to the assembly line, productivity levels climbed from around 50% to above 70%, and the deficit for December 2000, the year-end, had been reduced to just 1 unit behind and seen as a major achievement. My last task was to manage the smooth and successful operation of a new world-class one-piece flow thrust reverser production cell. The cell was then very successful, allowing unit production to increase by over 60% and achieve all targets for years 2001/2.

possible within the then AETC environment, with ambitions to implement the Poke Yoke and Kan-Ban techniques. I started as a machine setter/operator on electrical discharge machining and form grinding using Fanuc controls, machining aero and industrial turbine blades. Moving from AETC Ltd was necessary so I could further my ambitions of a management role, and I was also able to start the implementation of lean manufacturing.
