What I Used To Do For Philips Inc.:


MECHANICAL DESIGN

As of August 1st, 2001, the Healthcare Solutions Group of Agilent Technologies was sold to Philips Inc., for the grand sum of $1.7 Billion.  That's a lot of moolah.  At any rate:

My responsibilities involved acting as lead M.E. for defibrillator design in the Cardiac Resuscitation Solutions Division within the Philips Medical Systems.  This included:

I also acted as Manager of the four M.E.'s, one Drafter/Technician and one Industrial Designer in the Mechanical Engineering Group in the CRS lab.

On October 18th, 2000 the CRS Division released a new biphasic hospital (ACLS) defibrillator with AED (Automatic External Defibrillation) capability to production.   I acted as lead M.E. on that project, managing two M.E.'s in Oregon and coordinating tooling, procurement and design transfer to MFG.

On February 11th, 2004, the CRS Division released another, even more advanced and capable new biphasic hospital (ACLS) defibrillator with AED (Automatic External Defibrillation) capability to production. I managed the M.E. group through this project, staying on schedule through the final design/testing phase. I also designed the main case halves, battery and AC module, as well as many of the internal parts.
