It took him an amazingly long time to find the name, and then he did not know the persons title and said something to the effect of "he hasn't been there that long"
No one has really been at Rain Bird that long. They have about a 75% turnover every 3 years. In a sense, the company is really only 4 or 5 years old as the "tribal knowledge" is constantly leaving. You can see this now with the quality problems and the inability to introduce new products into the market place.
Increase the thickness. Within the deflection equation is a moment of inertia term. Within this inertia term are the cross sectional dimensions. this term is dominated by the thickness term since it is raised to the cube. Thus, the width of the beam is coupled by the cubic power to the overall deflection.
Adding ribs below the board will increase the moment of inertia and stiffen up the board. Just increasing thickness will consume more material and make the board heavier.
First I want to understand what are the challenging issues. I will be able to do what is required first if the issues are defined and identified. Then, I will utilize my professional IT skills and business experience to resolve the issues. That's what I will do initially.
Font type was too small for most people my age to read. Good reading glasses might have saved the day because I was able to answer well once I finally located the "monitor" in the schematic.
I applied at esi and was making $60k a year. Left to stay closer to home - approched 60% travel - worked at semiconductor plant for 4 years - 're-appplied at former manager's request, but offer was $15k less than when I left and they needed experienced help that could hit the ground running. Perfect fit Right? Wrong. Everyone wanted me, but no-one in HR understood "Experiance" . The went with a rookie and it cost them. LOL Big Time.
