At Nilesk I was responsible for the design and engineering of a 27ft speedboat. I had the responsibility of three engineers during this project. The project started with initial design drawing. It ended with a prototype of the boat at a boat show and the boat ready for production.
I was involved with the ISO9001 certification of the KLM lightweight airline trolley. I have written, work instructions and set up numbering systems for the engineering department and the warehouse. I also have done tooling design for this project.
I also did costumer contact for a Dutch costumer for our woodworking factory. I dealt with orders, design changes, complaints and shipment.
