Timothy Lantz: Union Rep., New Products.

My position is New Products/Process Technician for York Vehicle Operations – my job is to do my best to ensure things are designed during development so they can be put together on an assembly line without unneeded difficulty. I bring assembly experience to design and process development. Sometimes engineers come to me to review their design changes – other times I have to challenge their designs. Lots of meetings and discussions.

 

I spend about 75% of my time at the Willie G. Davidson Product Development Center, 11800 W. Capitol Drive, Wauwatosa, WI. The company flies me back and forth to Milwaukee and has provided me with an apartment to live in and a car to drive while there.

 

Some other tasks are to evaluate new processes, compare them to current assembly practices, and help come up with methods and processes ensuring we can build a quality product. These same activities appraise future processes for ergonomics and safe assembly procedures. It is in these processes that sequence of assemblies are created that helps future line balance projects.

 

I participate in sub assembly trials and full builds both at the build lab in Milwaukee and in here in York. If there are any things that have new build process – I also make sure to share this information with those who need it therefor starting the training process.  Sometimes it is from scratch.

 

If anyone has any questions about what I’m doing – shoot me an email. I value the task I have been given. Thank you for your support.

 

All I can say about what I see is our future at York Vehicle Operations is going to be exciting!
