About David Ottenstein

I started my career at United Parcel Service, a long time ago. After little more than getting my feet wet in the Logistics industry I moved quickly into manufacturing. This is where I found my passion! Seeing raw materials coming in one end, going through various transformations, and seeing finished goods come out the other end is exciting for me. I have been described as a manufacturing nerd, I get so excited about it. I have been responsible for setting up manufacturing lines that produced things like windows that were installed in Willoughby Tower in Chicago, the ignition switch used in various Honda cars, wiring harnesses used in Toyota and Honda cars, and more. My knowledge of Project Management stems from having run projects like creating the department that manufactured the ignition switches for the Honda Accord and Civic. I had four bare walls, and a looming deadline when I took that one over. Not only did I get the air filters in place, the machinery installed, hired and trained a full staff, and got the line up and running but I also reconfigured the ERP as a side project to reduce manufacturing variances by over 67%. I also set up the line to produce the parts using 42-1/2 less man hours than Honda was using! Coming in under budget and finishing on time is what I do! A good bit of my success also stems from an easy familiarity with computers. I had been the IT Manager for a Japanese owned spring manufacturer for many years. This is where my facility with MRP/ERP configuration comes from.show more
