Finding innovative solutions to mechanical design, industrial design and human factors problems. I am highly effective at communicating mechanical engineering and design problems and solutions to stakeholders in a project.
Techniques David McCormick Uses:
Quality Function Deployment QFD, Sketching for concept creation and collaboration, Illustrator for presentations of product concept solutions. Solidworks expert used for documentation of product design. Finite element analysis.
David McCormick's Problem Solving Experience:
I teach a class that trains engineers how to communicate their ideas. By using simple sketching techniques, engineers can explore and share solutions for mechanical engineering problems. I have taught the class at Boeing, Labconco, Amcor and others.
I established an early stage/concept development function in a medical device company. The effort was successful in identifying customer requirements and defining product designs that satisfied those requirements. Being a small company, there was no engineering department so we then designed, documented and tested prototypes and pilot production
In a small appliance manufacture I established a new product development department. That resulted in taking the company from 50 million dollars in sales to over 300 million. The increase was primarily due to new product introductions that either were created in my department or evaluated by me to source or acquire.
