Job Title: SYNCHRO Specialist
Joined the SPI Team: 15/01/2001
我是 SPI Lasers 的 SYNCHRO 现场专家。
我于 2001 年加入南安普顿光电股份有限公司，担任机械设计工程师一职。我耗费多年的时间设计光纤激光器，直到 2007 年才开始从事新产品引入项目的项目管理。在那段时间内，我学到了许多与制造有关的新知识，以及设计与生产流程的交互。
我们的客户看到一个红色的盒子，但却不能集成到流程中。我耗费了 18 个月的时间管理由八位工程师组成的全球团队，尝试实施政策在非常动态的环境中帮助做出决策。
2011 年 10 月，我前往迪钦根(德国)接受 SYNCHRO 专家培训。专家培训持续六个月，其中在通快的五个经营场所进行为期八周的培训，这段时间的培训让我充分掌握 SYNCHRO 的基础知识以及精益制造。此后，德国通快公司已经引入‘SYNCHRO +’，帮助我加深对 SYNCHRO 应用的理解。
我的职责是：协助改进项目、培训同事、教授和发展车间员工，指导人们加深对 SYNCHRO 的理解以及在生产和办公流程应用 SYNCHRO。

Job Title: Senior Process Development Engineer
Joined the SPI Team: 04/07/2011
我于 2011 年加入 SPI Lasers，担任工艺开发工程师一职，在此之前，我曾在多个半导体公司担任工艺开发工程师。因此，加入纤维激光器公司对我来说是进入一个相对较新的的专业领域。这个职位让我可以将物理知识和工艺工程技术有机的结合在一起，发挥我在这个新领域的作用。因此，完全掌握光纤激光器制造独有的科学和技术是一件非常困难的事情。SPI 拥有高素质的核心技术人员，他们愿意分享他们掌握的专业知识，帮我拓展履行职责所需的科学知识，虽然公司会向新手提供与光纤激光器开发有关的技能。
SPI 也授予我管理流程研发团队的责任，从而拓展个人技能，并促进职业生涯的发展。而且，公司对我寄予了很高的期望，为了提高我管理工程师和技术员团队的经验，SPI 给予我参加领导力开发课程的机会，通过该课程我学到了宝贵的管理技能和技巧培训。
