Cellular Phone Manufacturing
Product Services Test Engineer
deployed test station hardware and software used in the
rework of cellular phones in a post manufacturing
Created various Windows
automation software scripts to automate product testing,
which significantly reduced human error and test time.
Defined, created and
validated cellular phone test; reworked procedures for use
in production area by third-party logistics (3PL) personnel.
Supported re-configuration of
cellular product (IS-95 and GSM UMTS) with updated flash
code and/or PRL, ERI, SIM Locks, etc., resulting in reduced
scrap and fast rework turn times for cellular service
Calculated capacity and
hourly rate of product rework area, then procured and
installed necessary hardware and software to meet
Troubleshot various test
anomalies encountered once product rework processes began,
which reduced false failures (NFF) and increased capacity.
Assessed failed product and
provided feedback through reports to R&D support personnel
located at a remote location, reducing travel and product
Maintained calibration on
various parametric test stations and equipment.
Worked with vendors to reduce costs and time
associated with annual equipment calibration.
