The featured student this week is Nygel Yancey, an industrial engineering major from Memphis, Tennessee, who worked for Duraline in Knoxville, TN.
During his rotation, Yancey worked in the quality department. His responsibilities were to maintain monthly reports on sales, orders, scrap, and customer complaints. He also maintained a system of controlled documents that the entire company must abide by. He did projects that pertained to keeping a record of data logs in order to make decisions based on accurate statistics gathered. These reports were used to discuss and determine what can be done to minimize issues that dealt with safety, scrap product, etc., and to maximize profit.
