At DIV’s R&D department, I am tasked with providing support for the mass production of medium-sized diesel engine forklifts. I am also responsible for improving the productivity of forklifts produced for both domestic use and export, improving quality, reducing costs, and designing SQ (special vehicles tailored to customer requests). I joined the company in 2008, was assigned to R&D, and have been working in that capacity ever since. I have engaged in the design of diverse forklift models from medium-size 4-ton to large 16-ton models. Such design experience seems to be my biggest strength.
During my six years with Doosan, I have grown significantly in various respects. I have shifted my viewpoint on products and their prospects to customer- and market-oriented viewpoints, paid attention to the voices of our customers, and continuously moved toward the established goals. As such, I could find myself changing attitude to my jobs.
During my R&D project periods, I participated in several domestic and overseas exhibitions each year. I also observed and attended the CeMAt in Shanghai, China, and the IMHX exhibition in Birmingham, UK as a designer, thereby meeting and communicating with diverse customers and having opportunities to personally experience many competitors and market trends. The most attractive part of my job as a new model development designer is to give explanations of product designs and concepts and product competitiveness to dealers and customers, and to listen to their feedback and share opinions.
At the UK IMHX2013, the vehicle I designed was exhibited under the name of the Doosan brand, which made me very excited. I felt that I was part of the DIV brand and its global logistics development, and felt responsible for my duties.
