AutoCAD Expert - computer aided design and drafting plus computer programming skills. While working as an electrical designer with a large automotive supplier (Comau America), Tim and his team (5 people) were tasked with creating electrical designs for an auto body robot assited assembly line. This took 3 months and 1000's of man-hours to complete. When finished the customer (Chrysler Corp.) tasked them to duplicate all drawings for a different application, and get it done in a week.
An estimated 40,000+ edits would be needed to accomplish this task, AND there had to be no mistakes. Tim's solution was an automated computer program that identified all the errors, did all the edits and made all the prints. The program would cycle from page to page until all 1300 designs were duplicated, corrected and printed.
Tim hand coded a program from scratch that opened each drawing, inspected it for errors, corrected any errors, made a print, then closed the drawing and proceeded to the next drawing. It took Tim 1 day of coding and 2 days of program operation to complete the task. Leaving 2 days for customer presentation prep. It was great, we nailed it. Read problem solving and excellent computer programming skills.
