Tätigkeitszeitraum

12/2001 – 12/2003

Tätigkeitsbeschreibung

Contacted by an International Recruiter to join the Cost Reduction Engineering Team at OPEL AG. Responsibilities included the evaluation of current production models to identify components and component systems that could be produced in a more cost efficient manner while maintaining quality, feel, and safety

I was part of the Wheels-Brakes-Tires group, where we found cost savings in several over-specified materials. We also achieved cost savings in one model by eliminating the spare tire - replacing it and all supporting hardware with an on-board air compressor and aerosol tire sealant. This change was responsible for not only a savings in production cost, but also a reduction in mass. This solution is now commonly implemented on vehicles worldwide.

Other areas of focus included working with leather and trim suppliers to find lower cost alternatives for various grades of steering wheel leather, and for less expensive but high quality interior finishes.

- Cost Reduction Team to reduce production costs of Fuel System, Wheels, Brakes, Tires & Suspension Components.
- Worked to eliminate the spare tire from the Opel Zafira.
- Replaced the Jack, Tire Tools, and Spare Tire & Wheel with an air compressor and liquid sealant.
- Sourced all components from outside suppliers.
- Authored revisions to the vehicle operator’s manual.
- Analyzed Fuel System components of current production Vectra to look for cost savings.
- Identified several material changes, and validated them with crash tests.

Qualifikationen

I have an extensive background in Design & Development. I have been involved in Design & Engineering Programs in the United States and in Germany. I speak German well enough to conduct business, participate in meetings, and hold design reviews.

I have worked in several areas of Vehicle Design, including my involvement in several high-profile Electric and Alternative Fuel Development Programs.

I have lived in Germany long enough that I can be productive immediately without the usual distractions that Americans have in Europe when coming for the first time.

My wife and I have two children, and would like to raise them in Europe. My wife is an EU National, so work permission is automatic for me.

Über mich

I am currently in Europe on holiday, and a personal interview is possible this week.
