Systems Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee), Duluth, MN – August 24, 2014
A typical day as a systems manufacturing engineer would include solid modeling using CAD software, tool design and analysis, manufacturing sequence development, and work instruction creation.
While working at Cirrus Aircraft I have learned about design for manufacturability and assembly, product design using composite materials, composites manufacturing – more... methods, systems design and integration, and product reliability.
One of the more challenging parts of the job is also the most enjoyable. One of my core responsibilities is finding the most efficient and cost effective methods of bringing designs from prototype into production. – less
Cirrus was started by aviation enthusiasts with little business experience. Their product was years ahead of its competition so the company grew quickly. In 2008 sales slumped be 2/3 and over half the company was let go. Those remaining are skeptical of company intensions.
