About me

I studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Braunschweig. After graduation, I worked for BMW, Siemens, and Volkswagen.

Since 2008 I work as a freelance engineer, advising manufacturing companies on equipment modernization and process improvement. Currently, I am working on production optimization with Six Sigma and Machine Learning.

I like to spend my free time with my beautiful daughter. Whether in the saddle, skiing or inline skating – we both love action sports. I’m interested in modern design and architecture. Also, I like listening to audiobooks about the lives of interesting people and methods of self-development. I am a vegetarian, do a lot of fitness, mountain biking, and swimming. At home, I enjoy designing and printing in 3D and programming smart devices.

My Qualifications

I can help to increase your plant productivity and quality of your products or to manage your plant engineering projects. Whether fast troubleshooting or long-term engagement – I offer you professional support at the highest level.

In my work, I use widely recognized management standards. For each of these standards, I have certificates that demonstrate my knowledge of appropriate methods and tools.

Professional in Business Analysis

In my career, I continuously come across plans or projects with imprecise requirements. I improve them so that the project outcome brings real benefit to the business. To do this efficiently, I studied Business Analysis and passed my PMI-PBA® exam with the highest grade. I am also a member of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA). Finally, I actively participate in various business analysis groups to learn more about creating useful projects.

As your “agent of change,” I can help you introduce and communicate the necessary changes in your company. Building on this, I develop business cases and write useful project requirements.

PMI PBA Certificate

Certified Six Sigma Black Belt

My first Six Sigma implementation goes back to 2004 when I worked at BMW as a quality engineer. I measured and analyzed the quality of vehicle components and the data from production and test processes. With Six Sigma, I made sure that all vehicles left the factory without errors. That year BMW received several prestigious JD Power Awards for the world’s highest quality.

I received my Black Belt certification from Six Sigma College Dusseldorf. Currently, I work on the integration of Machine Learning in Six Sigma to bring production efficiency to a whole new level.

I can help you implement optimized processes, cut costs, improve quality, and increase customer satisfaction.

Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate

Project Management Professional

I have been managing projects for over 15 years. During this time, I worked on all kinds of projects – from small software patches to the construction of large car factories. I have a PMP® certificate from the Project Management Institute (PMI), which confirms my project competence and my knowledge of project management standards. I am also a valid member of the PMI and the PMI Frankfurt Chapter.

As an expert in complex projects, I can help you solve time and cost problems as well as conflicts with your customers and suppliers. As a German engineer, I can also solve tricky technical issues using my professional know-how and my problem-solving toolset.

PMP Certificate

Professional Scrum Master I

I used to implement Scrum for commissioning and error management of complex IT-driven equipment in the automotive sector. I am a certified Professional Scrum Master, with a focus on the combination of plan-driven and agile techniques in complex projects and agile implementation in non-software projects.

If you are about to implement a data-driven smart manufacturing solution, then I am your expert.

My References

I have managed a multitude of technical projects across a broad range of industries, including automotive, food and beverage, machinery and equipment manufacturing:

  • Successfully delivered projects with a total value of more than 800 million euros.
  • Created 50+ requirement specifications, conducted tenders with a total value of 100+ million euros.
  • Designed and built 10+ manufacturing lines and achieved the overall equipment effectiveness > 85% with Six Sigma.
  • Completed the launch of two fully automatic welding lines for Mercedes and Jaguar with a total of 100+ robots.
  • Supervised the greenfield construction sites for Audi, BMW, and Volkswagen in 5 countries.
  • Led teams with 100+ employees and trained 500+ people in three languages.

Planning the powertrain assembly for Audi Q5 in Mexico

Based on my benchmarking of the recently built factories, my team and I developed the optimal layout of the engine and chassis assembly lines. We have completed the process planning of 50+ workplaces, including line balancing and operating resources. Further, I conducted the Design and Process FMEAs. Finally, I created the business cases with cost-effectiveness analysis, schedule estimates, and risk assessments. We presented the business cases to the Volkswagen Group Production Committee and received its approval for implementation.

During the tender phase, I wrote 30+ tender documents for production equipment. I also developed technical recommendations for the selection of suppliers. Then my team and I supervised the selected suppliers from the design to the shipment of the equipment to Mexico.

Construction of the body shop for Jaguar XF in England

My job was to plan the installation of the production facilities (steel structures, welding systems, connecting conveyors) and to coordinate 30+ subcontractors on the construction site. I led my team of 100+ mechanics, electricians, and robot programmers through the installation and commissioning to the successful acceptance and complete processing of the snag list.

Together with the Jaguar engineers, I also solved various project risks, e.g., the verification of the load-bearing capacity of the hall ceiling. I have completed the project on time and within budget.

Jaguar

New test benches for BMW advanced driver-assistance systems

My task was to develop a new test bench for advanced driver-assistance systems. At first, I created the requirements documentation based on the BMW product specifications. Further, I composed work instructions for mechanical and electrical engineers, automation specialists, and programmers. On this basis, my team and I installed five test benches in the BMW factory in Munich and two test benches in China.

I spent three weeks in Shenyang and coordinated the logistics, installation, commissioning, and verification of the equipment supplied. I also carried out the training for BMW employees and wrote the equipment documentation in German and English. My team and I have achieved the acceptance of all systems within the customer’s schedule and the approved budget.

Production of car doors and flaps for Mercedes-Benz Vans

I was a temporary replacement for the sick on-site manager who led a team of 50+ engineers and programmers. At that time, they installed the fully automatic robot systems for the gluing and welding of car doors and flaps. The production facilities were already in 24/7 operation. My job was to complete the installation without production downtime and to carry out the acceptance tests.

I have completed the handover of 80% of the equipment to the customer. For the remaining 20%, I developed problem-solving processes based on agile methods and trained employees in the Scrum methodology. As a result, Mercedes was not only able to reduce commissioning costs but also increased the production of car doors and flaps from 150 to 300 units per shift.

Modernization of a bottling line for Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola hired me as a business analyst for the improvement of an old filling line for recyclable PET bottles. I have created a digital model of the production line and determined optimal production parameters. As a result of the new system speeds and maintenance intervals, the overall equipment effectiveness increased by 10%.

To further increase productivity, I invented new production layouts and completed a cost-effectiveness analysis. I also conducted a retrofit analysis of the existing equipment to achieve maximum savings in the modernization. Then I presented my business case to the company’s board in Berlin and received its approval for the modernization. Finally, I interviewed each of the 40+ people responsible for the production line, developed and validated requirements specifications, and handed them over to the project manager for tendering and implementation.
