CNR Design Ltd. December 1997 to January 2005.  
Experience. My time at CNR has provided the following uniquely varied and valued experience.
  • Thorough knowledge of quality systems and procedures - Working to BS EN ISO 9001:2000.
  • My tasks ranged through involvement in any of the stages from initial concept design, through investigations, material selection, to finished models, detail drawings and extending into prototype and production support. Including all necessary layouts, documentation and presentation material in the following key areas.
    • Automotive Seating Mechanisms - including motorized seat travel (fore/aft, lift and tilt), memory systems, slide assemblies etc. Interfaces with associated seating systems such as cushion, pan and recline mechanisms, seat backs, wireframes and foams. Including associated trim details, tooling and prototype work. (CAD systems used: Catia V4, SDRC/UGS Ideas)
    • Aircraft Seating Systems and Passenger Interfaces - including all aspects of modern powered (recline to bed) seating and long haul economy seating; including footrest, dropping side arm, stowable tables, sliding screens, folding child bolster seat designs and associated trim details. (Catia V4)
  • Investigation into suitable materials and production processes for hydraulic actuation cylinders. Involvement with miniature hydraulic systems.
  • Steering knuckle design and detailing, interfacing suspension items including ball joints, struts and steering arms, bearings, ABS sensor mountings and dust covers. (Catia V4)
  • Machine tool - automatic grinding machines for camshafts and crankshafts; including beds, underslides, wheelheads, hydrostatic bearings and telescopic guards. Exploded views for manual and technical documentation. (Unigraphics)
  • Aerospace test fixtures for Rolls Royce engine parts, including oil air separation and distribution. (Unigraphics)
  • Medical equipment. (Unigraphics)
  • Familiar materials and processes - pressed aluminium and steel parts, composite materials (carbon fibre, GRP), high strength materials (Nanoflex tubes and squeeze casting), extruded aluminium parts, machined parts, vacuum formed parts, castings, moulded plastics.
  • Experience in system admin, data transfer and file translation / conversion.
  • Knowledge of both PC and UNIX operating systems and software packages.
  • CAD Systems Used - EDS Unigraphics (1.5 year approx.), IBM Catia (5 year approx.), SDRC Ideas (1.5 year approx.). VPM. (Competent to the level CNR deploy it. Using it on and off for 4 years). It is difficult to approximate experience on each system as I frequently have to chop and change to suit customer requirements but I believe the above is a fair assessment.
  • While at CNR I have attended the following in-house training courses:
VPM Headstart. (2003)  Useful training and has given me a greater understanding of VPM and its potential uses. Has helped me become a proficient user and to pass on my knowledge to others.
Catia V5 Demo (2002)  I took full advantage of CNR's unlocked demo licence and have subsequently endeavoured to get my V5 skills up to speed at any available opportunity..
CNR VPM Training. (2001) Used extensively in the execution of my duties and many system hours now logged. Has helped me become a proficient user and to pass on my knowledge to others.
CNR IBM Catia (V4) Training. (1999)  Used extensively in the execution of my duties and many system hours now logged. Has helped me become a proficient user and to pass on my knowledge to others.

CNR  SDRC Ideas Training. (1999)

Used extensively in the execution of my duties and many system hours now logged.
CNR   Unigraphics Training. (1998) Used extensively in the execution of my duties and many system hours now logged. Has helped me become a proficient user and to pass on my knowledge to others.
  • While at CNR I have also given the following training courses:
CNR VPM Training. Introductory course for new starters, or personnel moving onto projects with VPM requirements, in the basic usage of VPM.
CNR IBM Catia (V4) Training. Training personnel in the usage of Catia (V4)
For CNR employees this was usually a day or so initial training tailored to suit their project requirements followed by close working supervision and guidance as necessary.
For clients this was run as a one week course, but again as necessary tailored to suit their particular interests and needs. The course aim was to provide the skills necessary to enable them to model competently and confidently to 'Catia Best Practice' and give an overview of the system's potential. Draughting was included when necessary.
CNR   Unigraphics Training. Scope and course aims similar to that for Catia.
General System Appreciation
and Data Transfer Skills.
Generally a course for clients to acquire basic skills in the day to day system admin and data transfer side of a UNIX system, and to ensure smooth data transfer from both sides.
Quality.
(Note this is pre 
BS EN ISO 9001:2000)
Introductory training for new starters enabling them to become familiar with the CNR Quality Procedures.
