KMC Engineers have "The Knack" ... and a rich life beyond the cubicle

 Posted by Patty Duffey and Gail Jones

October 23, 2012

Engineers are sometimes lightheartedly teased for their intense and intuitive focus on solving or fixing mechanical and electrical things, as mimicked here in "The Knack." Yet, many of our engineers also excel at taking on new challenges and activities beyond work with confidence and ease.

From home schooling four children, coaching and building their own homes to beekeeping, gardening and wine-making, KMC Systems, Inc.'s engineers engage in a multitude of other pursuits.

The company’s policy of every other Friday off enables many to expand upon their external interests. Some believe their life outside of work makes them even more productive at their jobs.

Below is a glimpse of four employees who bravely shared how they use their time off to the fullest extent. Collectively, they have more than thirty hobbies and each is passionate about both their professional and personal lives.

KMC Pioneers Medical Device Simulation Modeling To Reduce Risk

This is Part II of a two-part series. See Part I here

By helping medical device developers and OEMs visualize an instrument’s performance  before design even begins, KMC Systems, Inc.’s unique instrument model simulation process helps CEOs create realistic, end-result business plans that save time and money upfront.

 The simulation process employed by KMC brings together “the best of three worlds”-- marketing, engineering and operations --as a sole source for evaluating and defining product features and functions. Assessing options in a model at the concept stage is faster and less expensive than implementing changes during hardware and software integration.

 

 Why KMC as the “model experts” ?

Based on the vision of Spencer M. Lovette, KMC program manager, who foresaw a way for bringing the simulation modeling expertise used in other industries to diagnostics, KMC’s approach cannot be easily duplicated.
