Denso Manufacturing of Maryville

QC technical team leader

I was the quality team leader for the final assembly lines for starter and alternator. I oversaw 12 associates which we tested and inspected final product before shopping to the customer. I also did maintenance on test equipment and preventive maintenance. If there was any quality issue, I insured that all suspect product was contained until it could be sorted. I also got the associates ready for TS audits or QS 9000. Before transferring to QC I worked on the starter armature line for the first 5 years. I knew how to operate all the machines and able to trouble shoot problems we they arose.

I supervised the daily production on the hardcoat line which is a process of coating head light lens. I also did routine maintenance and improvement items to increase production by reducing scrap. I oversaw 10 associates which included assigning daily positions, cleaning duties, and cross training. Also introducing lean manufacturing to improve our bottom line. Prior to transferring to the Hardcoat department I worked in the Paint department in which we painted interior trim parts from switch plates to door trim parts. There were 3 paint robots that I had learned to program because they where old styles which they would lose their positions sometimes.
