Getting to Know the People of CS Marine - David Kieke

Blog 6 of 7:  Our Next 7 blog posts are going to diverge a bit.  We would like for you to get know our company and our engineering team.  We are all very different people and have all had very different journeys to get to where we are now.  We would like to honor those differences.

NEXT UP:  

DAVID KIEKE - CHIEF ENGINEER

1.Tell me about your career.  What did your journey look like before you came to CS Marine?

I've always been interested in working on vehicles and power systems from a very early age.  Luckily, I've had the opportunity to focus my career on lots of different aspects of vehicles.  During college, I worked in manufacturing engineering for carbon fiber turbofan engine components and learned a lot about processes and manufacturing systems.  In college, throughout my Bachelors and Masters programs, I participated in and lead the Formula SAE racing team at two different universities designing and building racecars from scratch each year.  

I had the opportunity to work at GM and increase my experience in manufacturing and engineering at a very high production level and then moved into further detail in CAD and manufacturing of smaller volume projects at FEV Engine Technology.  I then moved into the startup world and spent the following decade working within multiple startup companies designing, building, and testing engines, transmissions, electric vehicles, powertrain components, etc.  Along the way, I have also run a motorsports business designing, manufacturing, and servicing racing transmissions and driveline systems.  

2. What originally drew you to apply to CS Marine?

Interest in contributing to a product that I can point out to family, friends, and colleagues.  In most of my career, my activities have been fairly hidden from outside view or secret due to the nature of advanced engineering and startup companies' proprietary concerns.  

3. What do you work on?

I work on the engineering and manufacturing of powertrain systems.  

4. Why do you look forward to coming to work every day?

I really enjoy the varied activities from one day to the next.  Within a single day I may have meetings with executives, design components and tools, write/edit procedures, work with others in various engineering departments, physically turn wrenches and do other hands-on labor or parts fabrication, take data, and analyze data.  This daily variability is something that I have always enjoyed and what previously drove me into startup companies and my own endeavors.

5. How has coming to CS Marine changed how you work?

Honestly, it hasn't really.  As stated above, the activities at CS Marine match very well to my preferred working arrangements.

6. What are you looking forward to learning?

I'm looking forward to learning about new clients, their technologies and challenges.

STEPHANIE NABOURS - PRESIDENT

1. Tell me about your career.  What did your journey look like before you came to CS Marine?

After graduating from the University of Texas as a Mechanical Engineer, I started my career researching combustion in engines, then rolling resistance on cars and trucks.  I Then moved to the design and release division for production trucks for a major car company. Here I learned the change process for current vehicle improvements and fixes, along with the design process to take a vehicle from concept stage to production. Always wanting to work independently and to free myself to pursue other aspects of life, I formed a company machining parts for a variety of companies, thus improving my understanding of manufacturing and design, along with learning the business side of owning and running a business.  From there it was a small step to running my own companies and employing others.

2.  What originally drew you to apply to CS Marine?

Taking advantage of “being at the right place at the right time”, my husband and I formed CS Marine.  We saw an opportunity to provide better technicians to help improve production at a shipyard. Since this worked so well, we expanded to then provide program management and engineering to a variety of clients.   His expertise in the Engineering side and my perseverance on the business side has been a winning combination for the company, our employees and those who employ CS Marine. 

3.  What do you work on?

I take care of the administrative, financial, and business side.

4.  Why do you look forward to coming to work every day?

The details involved in running a small business are extremely important.  I have many goals each day which I must achieve and I enjoy meeting those goals. 

5.  What are you looking forward to learning?

Running a small business is a complicated affair, especially one in the first few years.  I look forward to learning how to more efficiently and effectively run our family-oriented company6

Getting to Know the People of CS Marine - Daniel Nesberg

Blog 2 of 7: Our Next 7 blog posts are going to diverge a bit.  We would like for you to get know our company and our engineering team.  We are all very different people and have all had very different journeys to get to where we are now.  We would like to honor those differences.

Next up:

DANIEL NESBERG - Technical Specialist

1. Tell me about your career.  What did your journey look like before you came to CS Marine?

My journey before coming to work at CS Marine is perhaps not what one might expect. Most of my work experience lies in the Food and Beverage industry, excepting some warehouse work and a short time as a fiberglass fabricator. Deciding to better myself I began studying at Northern Michigan University where I dabbled in several subjects before pursuing a degree in Philosophy.

2. What originally drew you to apply to CS Marine?

Just prior to graduating, the opportunity to apply at CS Marine presented itself. The work was described to me as being, “sometimes hands-on, sometimes critical thinking, and often both”. Though perhaps not directly relating to my primary field of study, I leapt at the chance to do something I never have before.

3. What do you work on?

One of the great things about working at CS Marine is the variety of work that I am involved in. Succinctly put, I work on the alignment of the propulsion system. But underneath that umbrella lies a plethora of tasks that I do and/or oversee; such as measuring and adjusting bearing load and position or working to find ways to improve the alignment process.

4. Why do you look forward to coming to work every day?

I look forward to coming into work everyday is because of all the learning opportunities that I am afforded here. Since I began I have learned everything from setting up a dial indicator properly, welding, and using FARO laser technology. CS Marine has and continues to give me the knowledge and skills I need to be successful both here at Fincantieri Marinette Marine and anywhere else our journey may take us.

Getting to Know the People of CS Marine

Our Next 7 blog posts are going to diverge a bit.  We would like for you to get know our company and our engineering team.  We are all very different people and have all had very different journeys to get to where we are now.  We would like to honor those differences.

I shall go first to start the introductions. 

MICHELLE BREW - Director of Marketing

1. Tell me about your career.  What did your journey look like before you came to CS Marine?

My background and experiences have been extremely varied.  Before CS Marine, I worked on various promotions at numerous tradeshows/conventions and events. I have travelled extensively in the U.S. to many of its gorgeous golf courses doing sales, marketing and PR on the PGA (Pro-Golf Tour) for XM Satellite Radio.

2. What originally drew you to apply to CS Marine?

I like the family aspect of CS Marine, which was started by husband and wife mechanical engineers who saw a need in their field.  From what I gather, other companies lack their communication and interpersonal skills plus their exceptional work ethics.  Their engineers and project managers are not afraid to get their hands greasy with everyone else.  The people in charge work just as hard if not harder than their employees.  No one is shy of putting in a long day or cracking a little sweat to get things done and to get them done properly.

3. What do you work on?

I handle all marketing for CS Marine including our website, blog, linked-in, facebook, and instagram pages, as well as, all of our company photography.

4. Why do you look forward to coming to work every day?

I learn new things everyday and I love to learn: reading about engineering innovations anywhere in the world, meeting some of these creators, and hashing out new ideas for the company.  I appreciate that my input is always taken into consideration.

5. How has coming to CS Marine change how you worked?

I am reading many more engineering articles than I would have ever expected.  I mean, I like my Car and Driver but this is taking it to an entirely new level.

6. What are you looking forward to learning?

I am looking forward to becoming the best in my field, expanding my job experience, and being on the forefront of innovation.

Sky Car, Freedom Motors, and the Future

January 30th , 2018

Yesterday we went on a field trip.  A few of us had the honor of meeting Paul Moller, inventor of the Sky Car and President of Freedom Motors.  He is an innovator ahead of his time.  Sadly they do not have the car ready for test runs right now but we did get to try out some of his other newer inventions.

Justification: The LCS 13 Alignment Team, a few of which were new to the alignment work over previous hulls, were key in defining with high quality fidelity an accurate and repeatable alignment process covering all BLDG 10 activity and post-launch activity through the sell of final alignment. This process led to the executable alignment schedule and laid the frame work for alignment process innovation on future hulls. The alignment team significantly stream-lined alignment project rotational phases. By using a single alignment team to cover all hulls, as well as using (CS Marine provided) PLS units during rotation, execution of the strain gauge process was greatly improved. The Alignment team earned the confidence of Lamalo (vendor for providing strain gauge data) enough to allow multiple simultaneous moves of LSBs which further decreased the schedule time to achieve shaft alignment and completion of shaft rotational project phases.
