My Success Stories

General Aviation Industry Change

Over the course of 2 years I led the effort to create a program, currently in use today, to pay an hourly fee to cover all maintenance needs for an aircraft through it's life. The program started with time studies and analysis. It ended with a series of detailed analysis and a mathematical formula to calculate the proper price points, and ultimately, the contracted program introduction. Six Sigma, facilitation, and management were overseen by me from start to finish.
