Kerjaya Aeroangkasa : Membina Profil

By : pang5

Keyword : Developing your profile / membina profil

Ramai graduan-graduan atau pencari pekerjaan mengalami salah faham yang kronik tentang proses pengambilan pekerja. Mereka menyangka mereka sepatutnya diambil bekerja sekurang-kurangnya atas faktor berikut :

1. Belajar di Universiti luar negara atau ternama.
2. CGPA yang mengancam.
3. Internship di syarikat2 ternama.
4. Mendapat training2 yang terbaik.
5. Macam2 lagi....

Semua itu betul tetapi bukanlah kemestian bagi sesuatu syarikat itu untuk mengambil pekerja berdasarkan penilaian tersebut. Ramai yang masih keliru tentang pembinaan profil yang agak penting di dalam sesuatu proses pengambilan pekerja. Bagi sesebuah syarikat, mereka mengambil pekerja dengan cara 'profile matching' iaitu beberapa ciri yang dikehendaki seperti 'set of skill', 'set of soft skill', 'set of knowledge', social skills, emotional quotient, Intelligent quotient dan sebagainya.

Katalah untuk suatu pekerjaan contohnya Stress Engineer memerlukan profil pekerja seperti berikut :

1. IQ yang tinggi. (>60%)
2. EQ yang tinggi. (Konsisten)
3. Kemahiran matematik yang above par (>70%)
4. Pengalaman di dalam design office. (>2 years)
5. Boleh bekerja lebih masa.
6. Minat menyelesaikan masalah yang rumit.
7. Social skills (Sederhana)

Semua elemen2 di atas akan ditapis di resume/CV dan akan seterusnya diuji sewaktu interview. Perhatikan yang elemen2 di atas bukanlah hendak semuanya tip-top tetapi lebih kepada padanan profil anda match dengan profil yang majikan kehendaki. Bukan semua majikan hendakkan pekerja yang CGPA 3.5 dan bukan semua majikan yang menolaknya. Bukan semua position perlukan soft skills yang tinggi mungkin hanya perlukan sedehana sahaja. Bukan semua position memerlukan orang yang terlalu details pemerhatiannya.

Jika anda memahaminya maka fahamlah anda ungkapan yang selalu disebut 'rezeki masing-masing'.

Sebab itu para graduan dan pencari pekerjaan adalah disarankan agar muhasabah dahulu diri tentang kekuatan dan kelemahan diri. Kemudian lakukan self profiling dan terjemahkan di dalam resume dan CV. Pilih pekerjaan berdasarkan kemampuan yang ada dan juga minat yang mendalam. Jangan sesekali menipu diri sendiri dan cuba menjadi orang lain yang akan menyebabkan anda tersekat di kemudian hari.

Jangan sesekali ada niat hendak menipu ketika interview. Cuba berlaku jujur dan jadi diri sendiri kerana jika profil yang dikehendaki majikan itu match dengan diri kita, yang untung adalah kita sendiri. Jika tidak dapat itu tandanya profil kita tidak match.

Kadang2 kita sangat meminati suatu pekerjaan dan ingin memilikinya tetapi kita sebenarnya tiada kemampuan memikulnya. Bersyukurlah kepada Allah SWT jika tidak memiliki apa yang kita kehendaki kerana itu mungkin adalah yang terbaik buat kita.

Bagi graduan, binalah profil perlahan2 dengan menyertakan minat dan kajian terhadap suatu jenis pekerjaan tetapi bersederhanalah.

Bagi yang baru memulakan pekerjaan sila ambil latihan2 yang disediakan syarikat dengan serius kerana ia sangat membantu di dalam pembinaan profil pekerjaan. Jangan takut mengambil peluang dengan berpindah ke department2 baru atau membina skill2 baru. Pandang sesuatu dalam skop horizon yang lebih luas.

Binalah jaringan/networking melalui kemahiran bersosial. You'll never know who will help you in the future.

Jangan terlalu bergantung kepada jobstreet.(terlalu ketinggalan)

Untuk worldwide recognition disarankan menggunakan Linkedin. (lebih advanced)

Catit setiap latihan/training yang diambil dan letakkan di CV. Tulis secara ringkas tetapi padat contoh :

  • Engineering Structure - Basic Metallic - Airbus Toulouse, France -March 2014
  • Engineering Structure - Advanced Metallic - Airbus Toulouse, France -March 2014
  • Engineering & Maintenance Process Communication - April 2014
  • Structural Repair Training - Eurocopter, Malaysia -June 2012
  • Configuration Management - Verify - August 2011
  • Performance Appraisal - Nelson -December 2011

Nasihat untuk siapa2 yang akan menempuhi kerjaya aeroangkasa ialah jangan cari musuh. Dunia aeroangkasa ini sangat kecil dan peluang untuk kita bertemu semula dengan orang yang kita benci sangat tinggi.

If you really hate a person just ignore him and just keep smiling.... it will not hurt you more..just don't let your life miserable and waste your time just because a person who didn't even deserve to take your most valuable time and feelings.... Spend it to your family and your love ones will be much better.

Merci.

Ziarah Toulouse yang dicengkam bayu dingin...

By : pang5

Ziarah tulus menikmati kegigilan bayu hujan yang mencengkam urat saraf... Angsa tulus mendiamkan diri mengenang Ilahi. Ahhh... Alhamdulillah berjumpa saudara Jordan yang menghidangkan moroccon teh, kopi ala toulouse dan juga american/obama kebab. Ziarah tulus seterusnya ke Basso cambo menjalin ukhwah dengan saudara2 yang telah terikat sejak alam arwah.

Airbus and MIT look to digital manufacturing to reduce aircraft construction costs

A lego play composite?? Damn cool.... :)

Source : http://www.reinforcedplastics.com/view/36097/airbus-and-mit-look-to-digital-manufacturing-to-reduce-aircraft-construction-costs/

Could composite aerospace structures be assembled much like snap-together building blocks rather than manufactured as large, expensive, one-piece parts? Under a new research agreement Airbus and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will explore the potential of digital manufacturing in aircraft construction.

Aircraft manufacturers are increasingly adopting composite materials to reduce aircraft weight and operating costs. Airbus' latest model, the A350 XWB, is over 50 wt% composite.
Current composite airframe manufacture involves the fabrication of large single-piece parts, an expensive process. (The fuselage of the A350 XWB, for example, is made up of a number of large composite panels which are then joined together.)
The digital material concepts being developed at MIT could lead to lighter weight structures and lower construction and assembly costs.

Composite materials

Airbus will work with MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA), which has been developing new methods for manufacturing structures out of carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP). 
CBA Director Neil Gershenfeld and his colleague Kenneth C. Cheung recently published a paper in the journal Science on Reversibly Assembled Cellular Composite Materials. This outlines the assembly of a 3D lattice of mass-produced CFRP parts with integrated mechanical interlocking connections. Cheung produced flat, cross-shaped composite pieces that were clipped into a cubic lattice of octahedral cells, a structure called a 'cuboct.'
The parts form a structure that is 10 times stiffer for a given weight than existing lightweight materials, according to the researchers. The structure can also be disassembled and reassembled easily – such as to repair damage. (The repair of the composite aircraft fuselages now entering service is a challenge facing the aerospace industry).
The individual composite parts can be mass-produced and MIT is developing a robot to assemble them into wings, aircraft fuselages, and other parts. Other applications such as bridge decks are also possible.

Advantages of 'digital composites'

The MIT technique allows much less material to carry a given load. This could reduce the weight of aircraft and other vehicles, which in turn would lower fuel use and operating costs.
The costs of construction and assembly would also be lower.
Unlike conventional composite materials, which tend to fail abruptly and at large scale when stressed to the breaking point, the modular system tends to fail incrementally, the researchers say. This makes it more reliable and easier to repair. 
The possibility of linking a number of parts introduces a new degree of design freedom into composite manufacturing. MIT has shown that by combining different part types, they can make 'morphing' structures with identical geometry but that bend in different ways in response to loads.
This means that instead of moving only at fixed joints, the wing of an aircraft could change shape.

Taper Scarf Removal : Not For Real Man


It is not an art at all. Just a lazy man's work. Although this is preferable in MRO industries, but the quality of the repaired structure already been compromised.

A few cons :

Not applicable to repairs of thick structures 
Some risk of damaging “good” structure within and outside the scarf area



The load designed for each layers of plies orientation is not connected perfectly anymore. It is just more or less, which is not up to the standard for aircraft industries.

For a real man out there, let's go for higher standard!





Composite Step Removal : The Forgotten Art


In composite repair, the removal plies process is the most unpleasant situation and could be hazardous due to dust from the removal. The best practice for this process is still the STEP REMOVAL.

Step removal is the standard requirement in aircraft industries especially for manufacturer. But, most of the MRO players prefer the taper scarf removal which is not very good in quality and load transfer designed for the current structure.



It is the race-against-time which in the end determine either step sanding or taper scarf is preferable.

Most probably, the step removal will be the forgotten art.

Video show of simple step removal using grinding process.

The quality different between step removal and taper scarf will vary greatly when the number of plies removed increases.

But, by using grinder for step removal at certain point can be very impossible to handle. This will limit the repair if the competency is not up to the level required.

The keyword here is 'Competency'.

See the example of 16 plies removal using special techniques from aircraft industries;


So, how to remove 16 plies of composite with this complex configuration?

The keywords here is 'Special Techniques'.

The secret of the forgotten art is safe with us.
