Jeffrey’s contributions: “I am developing apps for the iPad and iPhone that are specifically geared towards manufacturing. Mobile apps for manufacturing will soon be an essential tool and transformation cornerstone for CMMS and productivity applications. I am producing unique and customizable solutions for the manufacturing industry.”
Why a career in manufacturing? “I started as a full-time engineer in manufacturing shortly after my second internship through the University of Louisville. I quickly moved up into an engineering and maintenance manager position where I was responsible for and involved in a wide array of improvement activities. Preventive and predictive maintenance, autonomous maintenance, CMMS deployment, and machine upgrades were all routine tasks. I enjoy manufacturing as it seems there are always ways to improve.”
