CAREER GROWTH ACCELERATION FOR MANUFACTURING ENGINEERS By ARIVALAGAN SHANMUGAM – The Literature Times Magazine Vol 1 Issue 3

Career Growth Acceleration for Manufacturing Engineers

The two major questions to Engineers who all in the beginning of their career are

  1. Have you decided what do you want to become in life ?
  2. Have you thought about how to accelerate your career?

These questions may not be relevant to them at this age as they may not have understood them well, but it is very important that they understand these questions and work on it very seriously.

Majority of the engineers think, once they have completed their graduation their education is completed but the reality is the real education starts only during their career, especially in the fast-changing technology era.

  The way we do business today is completely changed due to Digital world and fast changing technology in every field completely demands for new set of competencies

     It is important that they set their life Goal as well as career Goal, during beginning of their career and get to know what the kind of GAP is existing in order to plan their education to accelerate their career.

I have developed a Five aspects program to accelerate the career of these engineers

  1. Strong knowledge on fundamentals of Engineering- as Mastery is repeating the fundamentals
  2. Understand the Business functions in order to position themselves – as Business grows only if all the functions of business grow  
  3. To become a Leader – as only Leaders can accelerate and transform the business
  4. Learn to set the Goals, Tools, Systems and Strategies for the business- as People may fail but system will not fail
  5. To become Self Mastery – as Awareness is the key to accelerate the career

I have a unique methodology called Version Mapping tool with this tool one can create a system and strategies to improve their skill sets which are essential

Learning is the key to career acceleration 

I have 35 years of hands on experience in manufacturing- designed, manufactured and commissioned all types CNC machines and managed large cnc machine shop, supplied precision products all over the world when I was working as a Director for three German companies. I had joined this German company as Project in-charge in 1990 and became a Director in 1998, hence I know with my experience to accelerate the Career specifically to manufacturing Engineers.

If any Engineer in their beginning of their career follows these Five aspects and use Version Mapping Tool effectively then certainly one can accelerate their career for sure.    

About Me……

 I have completed my BE degree at Govt. College of Technology at Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu in Production Engineering with very relevant curriculum focused on Machines, Designs, Mechanisms and on focused manufacturing syllabus. After successful completion I got a campus selection for Binny group Castings division at Chennai and I worked for a Machine Tool reconditioning division.

Within a Year I got the job at WIDIA INDIA LTD (Now Kennametal at Bangalore) and there I learned the design, manufacturing, Assembly and commissioning and services of Special Purpose CNC Machines. My specialisation was Manufacturing Spindles within 0.002 mm for all the Gun drilling Machines. I have assembled more than 200 spindles in my career.

My Technical experience is unique, as I am well established in Design, Manufacturing, and commissioning CNC Machines along with support services. I am also strong in Tooling (WIDIA INDIA was Tool Manufacturing) and fix Turing for parts in large volume as well as for small batch quantities by using SMED method and statistical techniques. With Machine tool background and TPM knowledge I am well established in maintaining the machines and equipment as well as eliminating surprising breakdowns.

 I am currently working as a Vice President for SUPRATEC, part of Saideepa Group, Hyderabad.
