Interim International Projects Director, China based in an SOE, maturing and managing processes for transferred German 2MW technology
Following first of type production, matured developed assembly concepts and practice for nacelle and hub assembly
Supervised zero series assembly (all China work force), increasing beat rate
Within 8 weeks created a single complete dual language graphical BOM document
Run of 25 machines subsequently assembled by the trained teams
Following on from a China assignment to build a first-of-type nacelle and hub, I supervised the zero series build of further nacelles and hubs, improving factory logistics, subassembly technique for volume, tooling and worker skills.
I ensured quality was maintained, the control and beat rate improved and that lessons learned from the first-of-type assembly were implemented.
I created a graphical master Bill of Material (BOM) in both English and Chinese, covering parts, full specifications, assembly sequences, timing, all tooling etc. This BOM had embedded files and thus provided a complete build manual and a basis for revision control and a single document for developing series one and subsequent build standards. It was successfully used to plan the next phase of assembly.
