Industrial Engineer with an MBA. The job title is "Division IE" or something like that. I work on a lot of different things, which I enjoy. Currently, I'm finishing up as project lead/manager for a new manufacturing facility. That was ~1/3 of my role for the last three years. We spent >$100M and have quite a lot to show for it. Missed a few things on the facility design side (a couple of areas are short of space), but I've/we've done large greenfield and brownfield projects 4 times previously, and inevitably, there is an over-optimistic assumption somewhere. We're already looking at a major expansion, where we'll add a lot of floorspace and I'll figure out a way to fix the minor warts in the existing space. Other than a few wrap up equipment modifications, the initial phase of the current project is over and I'm in wrap-up mode dealing with the purchasing and accounting folks to prove that nobody got a new RV-10 out of the rounding errors. Another big recent project has been to do the business modeling, then design, build, equip, and populate a facility in Asia to serve that market. I'm currently doing the same kind of thing in Europe. I'm gonna enjoy the European travel better than the Asian travel... Today, I sat through a quarterly 3 hour training session (not great, not bad), took care of some administrative stuff (buying things, updating some financial projections), and spent the balance of the day putting together cost estimates and a product review around competitive products from others in the industry. I'm one of the senior operational guys in a billion dollar business that spins off a huge portion of my employer's profits. We've grown that business from nothing in about 25 years. It is very rewarding to realize that my work (in part) has resulted in the employment of thousands of people, 95% of who are in the SE. US of A. And then there's trying to answer all of the questions and build the next generation of engineers and managers. That one never ends.
