Agilis Engineers Win Engineering Achievement Merit Awards
Agilis is proud to announce that Jose Cintron, a Structural Analysis Discipline Leader, and Ron Washburn, the Chief Scientist for Agilis Measurement Systems, have each been awarded Engineering Achievement Awards from The Engineers’ Council. The Engineers’ Council, a not-for-profit founded in 1955, annually awards leaders in engineering, education and special fields of work and public service.
Jose will be receiving the Outstanding Engineering Achievement Merit Award, which recognizes individuals who have achieved significant accomplishments in a particular area of engineering activity within the past year. Ron will be receiving the Distinguished Engineering Achievement Award, which honors individuals who are outstanding in professional qualities and have a top reputation for engineering accomplishments and leadership.
Under Jose’s dynamic direction, the Agilis engineering team has developed new process maps, training protocols, best practices, quality standards and plans for systematic continuous improvement. Over the past five years, Jose has managed one of the largest developmental military rig programs for a major OEM. He holds 2 U.S. Patents.
Ron, a voting member of the International Society of Automation Tip Timing subcommittee, collaborates regularly with industry experts to develop standards for blade tip timing. The youngest Associate Fellow ever during his time at Pratt & Whitney, Ron has led the Agilis blade vibration measurement and analysis team for over a decade. Agilis c360® Vibration Intelligence Software was developed under his leadership, and is now the industry’s leading technology for post-processing blade vibration data.
Ron’s work has been cited in more than 30 scholarly articles, and he has acted as the Principal Investigator for Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) with the Department of Defense. He is a recognized expert in advanced Non-intrusive Stress Measurement System (NSMS) instrumentation across the entire spectrum of turbo-machinery for industrial, military and space applications.
“It is a great honor to have two of our senior expert engineers recognized by the Engineers’ Council. Ron and Jose are proven leaders in this industry and we’re proud to have them lead our teams here at Agilis. Their insight, professionalism and creativity are what help set Agilis apart in the turbo-machinery engineering world,” says Agilis CEO and Founder, Frank O’Neill.
