I have been working at Sigmetrix full-time (More than 3 years)
I've been with Sigmetrix for the past three years and have enjoyed every day, no exaggeration. Working as a channel manager and international sales has been stimulating and has give me, with a customer and distributor orientation, the opportunity to work to one degree or another with all the departments (software development, marketing, operations, accounting) and I can honestly say the people that our CEO has assembled are excellent people and excellent in their work.
The CEO sets the pace, demands a lot, and strikes just the right blend of goal setting and mentoring that causes the group to stretch collectively and ensure we work as a team.
I've worked in technical sales in many venues and roles - Sigmetrix has been the best I've seen yet.
The CON: working with very educated engineers and technical management who lack the technical background to understand the basis of the root cause of their manufacturing and problems (conflicting part tolerances).
END OF CON (con background follows)
Sigmetrix sells it software products to companies that produce devices that literally make the difference between life and death (think medical devices) and products that are produced in the thousands where the tolerances of manufactured parts conflict. Understanding the tolerance interplay makes the difference between customer satisfaction (and brand leadership) or a black-eye from a recall.
Fortunately, Sigmetrix' software products compensates for this lack of fundamental concepts by making the tolerance analysis as simple as clicking on the surfaces of 3D models to describe the interaction between components in an assembly.
Mechanical Tolerance Analysis is an engineering discipline that is rarely taught in-depth in undergraduate studies, the world over. Tolerance Analysis really should be accomplished at the beginning of the design and engineering stages, but because of the perceived difficulty of the analysis process is often relegated to a last step before passing to manufacturing, "to make sure we're not missing something."
Sigmetrix' flagship software product, CETOL 6 Sigma, extends the tolerance concept from 1D "tolerance stackups" (usually performed with spreadsheets by well-intentioned engineers) to 2D and 3D assemblies which need not just worst-case assembly analysis, but also a variety of statistical parameters to forecast manufacturability and quality metrics.
Advice to Management
Keep on pushing us to improve the product and delivery; continue to develop and convey the company vision to the team and our customers; promote Sigmetrix as a key solution provider for the robust design and production goals companies the world over strive to achieve.
