Meet Nahal Sarkheil. Nahal has been working at MTEE since 2017 as a quality system engineer in the turbocharger division. Nahal is originally from Iran and holds a Master degree in Industrial Engineering from Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada. After graduation, I knew I wanted a job that would not limit me to only one direction, but allow me to continue learning more in any field that interests me. I soon found out that quality was the perfect match for this. As a quality engineer, you get to be involved in several areas and you can choose to obtain deeper understanding in the topics that interests you the most. Quality runs through the whole company, so you get to work with all departments on all kinds of topics.
Nahal’s role at MTEE is to implement and maintain the new quality management system based on IATF 16949.
An important part of my job is to cultivate a quality culture within MTEE. All employees need to understand the importance of quality and to feel it in every aspect of their work. It’s a common misconception that quality is about paperwork and filling out forms. Quality is about ethical behavior. It’s about conforming to the agreed upon standards in order to ensure that processes are always conducted in the same way. I really like how quality helps you develop an open-minded view in learning from everything, particularly your failures. In quality, failure is treated as an integral part of the process, which initiates several subsequent corrective actions. Being open about failure, creates a nurturing environment for learning. The art here is not to hide problems, but to solve them and learn from it.
