I am a professional graduate with a high 2:1 MEng degree in Aerospace engineering from the University of Liverpool (2010). I’m currently, working as part of the Assystem Gas Turbine Cost Reduction team to provide design support for Rolls-Royce aeroengines compressor components. My task is to provide engineering support accordance with Rolls-Royce standards for design - to aid with the development of the cost reduction initiatives to work towards a cost benefit of at least £4 for every £1 spent. Before my design job, I was working for the EHM (Engine Health Monitoring) team of Rolls-Royce in the Operation Centre, providing technical support for PELM tool. PELM tool enables optimised engine removal planning through flying each engine’s health score forward on a weekly basis to see how a fleet’s health is changing for Totalcare customers. Prior to that role, I was working in the Airbus plant Broughton with A380/A320 projects in a contract role. In the A380/A320 projects, I have been assigned to create SOI (Standard Operating Instruction), update PEGS & Timing specific manufacturing operations using Airbus MTM software Ticon.
I want to work for a major player so I can be at the forefront of breaking trends and new technology. I am very committed, hardworking and honest. I really love what I do and always try to surround myself with people who share similar passions. I also thrive in a fast-changing environment where there are cutting edge technologies and challenge involves. Also my own goal in a job is acquiring new skills, new knowledge, and new insights into the technological industry.
Specialties: My main skills are Interpersonal skills, good analytical skills, communication skills, oral written presentation skills, skilled with MS Office, TICON, PEGS, SOI Creation, design with Pro-E, CFD, MATLAB, FLIGHTLAB, project management skills, good organisational skills, leadership skills etc. Rolls-Royce software such as Unigraphics, Teamcenter, PDM etc,

• Provide Design engineering support to the Cost Reduction Work Package Owner (WPO) and Team Leader, taking the lead on design driven cost reduction activities.
• Provide relevant engineering support to aid with the development of robust business cases for Cost Reduction tasks.
• Investigate and provide design assistance when feeding the cost reduction hopper with new potential ideas.
• Produce cost reduction solutions, Cost Models and all relevant paperwork taking them through the appropriate Rolls-Royce CRAB (Cost Reduction Acceptance Board) review & TR (Technical Review) gates.
• Handover of successful Cost Reduction initiatives to Rolls-Royce design teams, via Teamcenter. This includes design solutions, NG Unigraphic Models, DDR (Design Definition Report) etc.
1. Answering Queries: Mostly FSO (Field Service Officer) and Fleet Planners queries. This could include wide range of PELM related issues. Sometimes this requires extensive researches. Also, there are people from other part of the business may ask questions about PELM time to time. Be able to answer those questions.
2. Onboarding New Operators: The term means including brand new TCA (Total care Agreement) Operators or newly contracted TCA Operators from previously T&M (Time & Materials) customer. There is a how to guide available which underlines the whole process.
3. Planning & Metrics: Maintaining plans for PELM and make plans for upcoming tasks. And supply metrics into the functions and operation centre related to effectiveness of PELM.
4. Hosting PCB (Product Change Board): Be able to host and manage the meeting in the absence of chair or PELM Manager. Need to set up the PCB Agenda, record minutes, updated weekly actions and the main PCB Tracker. Also, need to know how the PCB process works and learn how to write PCB templates as per requirements.
5. Data Interrogations: To check back to back PELM runs for input & output data accuracy in the executive system for fleet planning, data errors, correct scoring etc. Also, Identifying missing invoices, log cards, shop visit info etc.
6. Updating of Assumptions and Drivers for PELM: Service engineering inputs cross check with the time limits manual, maintenance documentations, ensuring accurate Service Bulletin, MOD standards and Weibull are accurate in PELM tool.
7. Test: Test any new functionality or requirements in align with PELM.
8. Validations and Verifications: All onboaring customers into PELM, Assumptions update to the live executive systems, all new functionality in the PELM tool.
9. Writing Documentation: Wide range of specifications for PELM. This could include user guide, new requirements or new design guides, specific software tool change requirements, new process etc.
In the A380/A320 projects, I had been assigned to create SOI (Standard Operating Instruction), update PEGS & Timing specific manufacturing operations using Airbus MTM software Ticon. Creating SOI involved observation works the in shop floors & taking pictures, consultation with operators, local engineers and line managers as well as gathering information from various airbus documents like ABP, MI, AIPS, Image Master (design drawings) etc for final documentation. PEGS are documents relevant to manufacturing process at a certified stage includes manufacturing requirements, interpreted from Design information or Design issued drawing notes & identified as (or considered as) important or mandatory. Ticon is a STV tool using MTM (Method Time Management) & UAS (Universal Analysing System) to analyse process time to save production cost for specific process. Ticon uses determinant factor of recording and assessment of time data to optimise production process.
Working as a waiter helped me to improve my interpersonal skills and learned to win people over to my point of view. I have gained experience to handle busy and tense situations, became well organised and worked as a team player to achieve required level of standard for restaurant business. I have also acquired knowledge about business, accounting, punctuation and making instantaneous decision to meet customer requirements.
I have graduated with an MEng in Aerospace engineering from the University of Liverpool and looking to start a career as professional engineer in aerospace industry. I have gained knowledge about Aerostructures, Aeroengines, Aerodynamics, Systems, Avionics and Materials (particularly composite). Throughout my time at the university I solved complex analytical problems and worked in various group projects where I acted as a group leader in some cases.
I am proud of the fact that I graduated on time with a high 2.1 after hard work of four years while involving myself in various other activities. A lot of my friends either took a reduced course load or let their grades suffer. I believe the reason I got through it all was sheer determination; I never even let myself visualize anything but finishing on time and with good grades.
Activities and Societies: Undertaken various training courses and social activities during the University time. Including Aircraft workshop training from NEWI, Undertaken ProEngineering/CAD training part of design module, participative Flight Test Course in the John Lennon Airport Liverpool. I was also involved with the Engineering society in various trip and social gathering activities.
