Inventory and Chemical Lab Technician

Reduced waste by enabling timely identification of Way Lube and Hydraulic Oil leaks by collaborating with oilers data and creation of a weekly entry/report form depicting gallons used and dollars spent. Escalated the information to management for plant machinery maintenance decisions.

  • Created departmental user input excel spreadsheets that calculated the cleaner solution concentration of 60+ washers throughout the plant. "Out of Ford Specification" situations could be immediately resolved as the color conditional formatted spreadsheet calculated chemical additions required. Monitored excess water usage. Attended weekly Ford Quality meetings reporting conditions to upper management.
  • Tested concentration, pH, bacteria and fungus contaminants in machine coolants and recommended chemical additions which ensured proper concentration for machine tool functionality. Tramp Oil% monitored to assist with determining when a centrifuge may be needed to remove excess oils.
  • Streamlined and improved the on floor products inventory process by creating an inventory sheet which aligned with the part washer testing route. Abnormal usages could be determined based on weekly monitored records. Researching the root cause of abnormal usages resulted in cost saving projects.
  • Automatic Transmission Fluid at final test stands, reclaimed oil, incoming railcar and truck shipments tested for cleanliness, water presence. Lab analysis tools-Karl Fischer, IR, Portable Oil Dirt Count Unit.
  • Cost saving project participation: ABB filter bag paper reductions and increased chip removal, MQL excess usage avoidance, ATF sustainability disposal process, returnable IBC tote credits.
