Kirsty Crofton shares her wonderfully effective experience at Purdue training to become an engineer (definitely look into this if you’re thinking about an education in engineering!). She also tells us about how to work with operators on the floor to identify and correct problems that might be harder for the engineering team to identify, and relates a terrific anecdote about toothpaste boxes and solving problems using the KISS principle.
