Team leader for the creation of a startup by putting together a business plan aimed at bringing to market a novel rotary combustion engine. The startup was successfully granted government funding. References:
Needed to increase the production of FS20 selectors to deliver over 2 M / units year. Two assembly operations had to be replaced by an automation to achieve this goal. Increased production from 1.6 M to 2.2 M units a year
Reduced production line from 5 to 3 people
Used a contact less fiber optic sensor to determine the quality of the bent connector wings of a pressure sensor.
Performed a full study on the existing B1 Pressure switch in order to pinpoint improvements and enhance the understanding of it for future improvements. The switch was initially conceived in a very empiric manner.
For my senior project I presented my own idea to make an ergonomic laptop. When closed, the laptop would function as a tablet (similar to today’s ipads), and when open the laptop would have the same ergonomic benefits of a desktop computer
This is part of my marine products, i came up with this one day while preparing my boat for an overnight regatta (Bol d'OR Mirabaud 2014) sold over 300 kits since
Pulling on lines on sailboats is tough at times and in some positions the line can not be attached to a winch, for this reason i came up with "hand pull"
