Tooling, molding, secondary operations, material selection, evaluation and testing, design, project management, costing, value engineering, international supplier management and enhancement, and more: this book provides a broad insight from the author's over 40 years of experience in the plastics industry. Through attention to fundamental engineering principles as an astute mechanical engineer and proven and recognized international hands-on experience as an individual contributor and manager of various teams in all aspects of plastics, and involving extremely robust mission critical products, the author has gained a one-of-a-kind depth and breadth of knowledge.
As a recognized long time international trainer, he has a deep understanding of the strengths and weakness of people working in all aspects of plastics as well as Six Sigma.
The book is therefore an essence of all the experience gained along the way: the good, the bad and the ugly.
This book is unique among the many other fine books available in the field in that it is the perspective of one who has been in the trenches – as opposed to an academician, scientist, or other professional in a field with very narrow scope, such as material science, tooling, or manufacturing.
Hence, the HOLISTIC APPROACH.
The author has been deeply involved in all aspects of plastics since 1968. This includes managing tooling, molding, secondary operations, material selection, evaluation and testing, design, project management, costing, value engineering and international supplier management and enhancement. He is an accomplished certified Six Sigma Black Belt and Trainer, and an internationally recognized trainer in all of the above areas. He has been awarded 21 US and international patents for his innovations. Since 1994, he has been Director of Engineering at Motorola, Inc. He is also Fellow of the Society of Plastics Engineers Awarded for the Promotion of Plastic Design Knowledge; Past Chairman, Product Design and Development Division, SPE; and Past Director, Injection Molding Division, SPE.
