With more than 25 years of experience working in industries of different segments (metal mechanic, polymers, rubber, automotive and machining) combined to his enthusiasm for lean process Expert has specialized himself planning and implementing new processes and performing process improvement by reducing work in process, cycle time balancing, optimizing operators standard work, supporting lean material strategy, identifying and eliminating non value added tasks resulting in production capacity boosting and piece cost reduction.
In addition to that Expert with all his background has been providing support to plants to identify and resolve top bottlenecks implementing methodologies for processes monitoring and plant management.

Also with a large expertise in discrete event simulation he has a strong capacity to support partners through the creation of models with a very high level of representatives to validate processes even before it´s implementation which makes the process concept meets the expected manufacturing targets.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities:

Additional Experience

Expert Witness Experience
Witness inspection support for aerospace segment, a vendor in Brazil (Tracker) was requested from an american company (Ducommun) to construct 15 Inspection fixtures that were going to be used to validate the construction of the airplane flaps. The support provided was to certify the fixtures were being constructed within the schedule, validade critical dimentions of sub-assemblies and final assemblies, guarantee the use of correct measurement methods and that the instruments used for measurement were certified.
The biggest challenge was to guarantee the statibily of the fixtures that were too big (more than 3 meters lenght) in a facility with a variation of more than 20C along the day, with very tight tolerances it would be impossible to validate it due to fixture dilatation.
To resolve it the vendor constructed a climate room with controlled temperature which guaranteed the stability of the fixtures making possible the validation of them.
