Speaker Biography

Kermit Taylor, Engineering Cost Reduction Specialist, 'The Design Kestrel"

With over thirty years of experience in automotive and aerospace, Mr. Taylor has saved employers and customers millions of dollars as an engineer, lean manufacturing coach, manager and entrepreneur. Frequently the maverick in insight and understanding, his solutions to problems have often been contested until proven or explained in detail. His unique design perspective at Boeing Commercial Airplanes saved $2,000/plane on the 737 line (over 5,000 A/C ago), and led to an attitude shift on the factory floor. Numerous other design successes and an MBA led him to a position over eight Black Belts, trying to solve a multi-million dollar factory rework issue. As the rework rates consistently matched his design spreadsheet analyses, Mr. Taylor began his greatest challenge. Now, as a mentor and consultant, he is changing the culture and awareness in engineering departments regarding the value and significance of tolerance analysis.
