In the summer of 2019, I worked as a Mechanical Engineering Intern at Haas Automation Inc. At Haas I was able to experience a hands-on learning environment under the largest western machine tool manufacturer. During my time at Haas I split my time between R&D and Supply Quality Engineering departments to assist both at the time.
For R&D I worked on the global sourcing effort to replace in-house parts with components manufactured overseas and in the United States. My primary focus was making sure these new parts passed form, fit, and function tests on the production line. In addition, I assisted with the rework process of faulty components for tools like the Haas Bar Feeder and Mini Mill series. In addition, I worked on helping with the reorganization effort for the department.
For Supplier Quality Engineering, I was trained on how to work with outside vendors for validation of RMAs and RGAs. I worked closely on cleaning up the electrical component overflow work to cover for the engineer who had recently left the company.
For both positions I was trained on how to use Haas's internal SAP ERP system. Also, I was given the opportunity to become CNC Haas Mill Operator certified as the program was just being rolled out during my time at the company.
