May Leng YAU-PATTERSON

Why did you want to work in the auto industry? Working with Toyota, I got intensive training, not only [on] planning inbound logistics but on how the Toyota production system worked. That intrigued me and got me interested in automotive. I like the fact the job is never done no matter how great the job was with Toyota. You take the weekend off, and on Monday it’s kaizen again.First automotive job: I started in the transportation industry in trucking. I was assigned to work with Toyota in 1988.

Proudest professional achievement: Leading teams to achieve several key bottom-line savings for Chrysler, including implementing lean inventory and materials management tools that reduced working capital per vehicle by 25 percent; contributing to 25 percent per-vehicle reduction in third-party sequencing logistics costs with key suppliers; and developing a container management system that reduced packaging costs by over 30 percent per vehicle.

Current challenge at work: I’m responsible for advanced program planning for all new products in stamping, powertrain and assembly plants. I also support Mexico, Canada and the U.S. So I’m responsible for all parts coming into the plant, packaging it, planning it and moving it.

What you do to relax: I try to jog 12 miles every weekend because it provides stress relief. I like to watch my daughter play basketball, softball, volleyball and soccer. Last week she hit a grand slam.
