Robert McCormick

Title Engineering Project Manager

Highlights Engineering project management experience for several product transitions over (18) years.

Responsible for allocating resources, completing projects on time, attaining budget goals, meeting performance targets and coaching all team members regarding project timelines. Worked with cross-functional teams to successfully complete all projects.

Led supply chain transitions to China, Turkey, Poland and the Czech Republic with domestic
offloads by managing firm timelines and communication challenges with offshore cultures.
Managed major product transition from Connecticut to Nebraska through team management of disparate engineering disciplines.
Worked as project manager for two international product transitions to Poland. Aided in design of flow cells for lean manufacturing. Instructed Poles in use of root cause analysis.
Provided overall program management for two projects at Hamilton Standard (division UTC) to refacillitate existing manufacturing sites under lean guidelines.
Have become very proficient at project management, controlling milestone goals, containing costs within budgets and integrating lean principles.
As an extremely fast learner I require little time getting “up to speed” for new projects.

Experience Hamilton Sundstrand (UTC), Windsor Locks, CT
2006 to 2008 Project managed supply chain initiative to transition product from domestic supplier to
aerospace company in China. Successfully managed project timeline and assisted the Chinese in process, tooling, lean design and selection of 15M RMB of new capital. Interfaced directly with Chinese personnel in China to teach them western style methods of project management. Deliveries of hardware occurred per project schedules and included setting up new logistic systems of international material transfers.

2005 to 2006 As part of strategy to outsource precision manufactured product to out of state lower cost sources, managed and led project management team in (18) month project to transition manufacturing methodologies including capital equipment and processes to suppliers in Michigan and Nebraska. This project was managed by working milestones with supplier personnel on site and dealing with every day transitional problems in real time. This became an extremely smooth transition and all milestone and budget goals were significantly below target dates and costs.

2002 to 2004 Pratt & Whitney (UTC), E. Hartford, CT
Project manager for international effort to transition jet engine tube assemblies from E. Hartford, CT campus to an aerospace company in Poland.
Managed all phases of project concerning technical transfers, budgets, new building refurbishment, new capital equipment purchases, lean cell design, tooling expertise and the training of manufacturing engineers and production control personnel. Worked as advisor to Polish plant manager. Project was managed with daily interfacing with teams in the US and Poland. This transition was completed within the project schedule of 2 years with virtually few quality deviations and no shipment problems to the assembly floor.

2000 to 2002 On loan to Pratt & Whitney Canada for two years to project manage transition of jet engine tube
assemblies from US suppliers to a PWC manufacturing facility in Poland. Assisted the Poles and acted as advisor to Polish technical management in the transferring of technical data, capital equipment purchases, facility design, new tooling concepts and the training of engineers and support personnel. With my assistance, new tooling and fixturing concepts were developed which greatly improved quality standards (escapes, defects and high quality costs) from US supplier standards. Responsible for the 18 month timeline and project managed within budget.

1997 to 2000 Technical manager for E. Hartford’s jet engine tube fabrication facility. Project managed move of tube assembly area from Middletown CT in 1999. All project timelines and budgets were met within (10) months, less than the 1-year timeline. Redesigned layouts for lean manufacturing and added $2.2M in new clean rooms for welding and capital equipment upgrades. Led efforts to reduce quality escapes by 55% through aggressive improvements in mistake proofing, root cause analysis, real time quality statistical methods to improve quality and preventive maintenance on all capital equipment.

1995 to 1997 Hamilton Standard (UTC), Windsor Locks, CT
Operations manager and manufacturing engineering manager for product manufacturing and an assembly and test area. Led manufacturing efforts in the initial development and maturity of two new fuel control systems for Rolls Royce jet engine programs.

1993 to 1995 Project managed the transition of an assembly & test area to a new building. Worked with construction managers to build a new explosion proof test and assembly facility. As part of this project, led the development of new computerized fuel testing stands and subsequent installation and prove out into production systems. Coached a team that designed lean flow into the assembly area to minimize inventories. This project was managed using sound project management and was completed within the milestone commitment of (18) months and $8.8M was spent well within the $9.5M budget.

1990 to 1992 Project managed a re-facilitation of a product manufacturing area. Led the project team in designing the first lean flow cells using principles from Toyota flow experts and introduced a system using Kanbans. $15M in new capital equipment was purchased to “seed” the new flow cells (grinding, turning, EDM, honing, ejector drills) and equipment was refurbished from the previous areas. New clean rooms were built to improve the critical tolerance and cleanliness requirement capabilities. This project went extremely well and was completed one month short of the (30) month timeline and under budget ($24.2M versus $25M budgeted).

1986 to 1990 Managed and led the manufacturing engineers involved with discrete manufactured parts. Worked the first cooperative manufacturing program with GE in the make of high precision servo valves for GE’s F110 program. GE was extremely satisfied with this project. The team of ME’s also worked with one of the first generative process planning systems in the US to generate process plans for valves for a Pratt & Whitney afterburner program.

1978 to 1986 Worked as a project and senior manufacturing engineer performing process planning, product support, testing support and analysis. The major project during this period was to upgrade EDM capabilities to manufacture a new type valve design for Pratt & Whitney Canada. This project involved capitalizing to new CNC ram type EDM, CNC wire EDM and non-contact video camera inspection.

1973 to 1978 Osley & Whitney (Mold Makers), Westfield, MA
Worked as a machinist for a manufacturer of plastic injection molds. My duties included machining especially in EDM. My last two years were apprenticed in the design of injection molds.
