(1888PressRelease) February 16, 2017 – Dan Giordano has been promoted to Project Manager at Laboratory Testing Inc. to oversee the implementation of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) System. Dan will be responsible for the day-to-day management of this project and the various project teams. According to Mike McVaugh, CEO and President of LTI, “Not only will he oversee the activities of the core and extended project teams at LTI, but he will also act as the principal liaison between LTI’s project teams and our external partner, Decision Resources Inc.”
Dan is a May 2014 graduate of Penn State University with a B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering. His career at Lab Testing began upon graduation, when he joined the company as an Industrial Engineering Intern in the Mechanical Testing Department and Machine Shop. He was hired as a full-time employee two months later and given the title Machine Shop Workflow Coordinator. During the first year, he started to transition into his next role as Project Engineer by expanding the types and size of projects he coordinated for both Mechanical Testing and the Machine Shop. “Both departments have gone through extensive development and change during Dan’s time, and he has been a key member of the implementation teams”, said Mike McVaugh.
The Mechanical Testing Department provides a wide-range of services that evaluate the mechanical properties of metals and polymers, from tensile and hardness testing to charpy impact, stress rupture and fracture mechanics. The in-house Machine Shop produces all test specimens required to fill mechanical testing orders at LTI and also prepares specimens for customers who perform their own testing.
The ERP system will be implemented in all three production departments, Destructive Testing, Non-Destructive Testing and Metrology, as well as most support departments, including Sales, Machine Shop, Order Entry, Shipping/Receiving and Accounting. The System will allow LTI to work more efficiently and improve collaboration between departments.
