Concept development: Working from the system requirement spec. I put together a Mechanical requirement spec. Then I start from a ‘blank sheet’ to develop several concept and development designs to be presented to customer for evaluation.
Concept to Production: I worked on several products that started off as a basic customer requirement. I would then turn that requirement into an actual working prototype then into a production unit.
New Ideas: Quickly understanding the scientific principles and difficulties behind what we are trying to achieve. This enabled me to participate and find potential hardware solutions, design avenues and project directions to reach our goals.
Communicate ideas: A skill I utilize at the early development feasibility stage is the ability to produce quick concept and development sketches to convey my mechanical arrangements and solutions to engineering problems. Enabling me to also present these ideas quickly and effectively to other members of the team, senior management and marketing departments.
