Li Ion & Advanced Engineering Methods

Steve Mallinson
Vice President Engineering & Development

"I had the pleasure of working with Eric at both Valence Technology and Micron Communications and witnessed first hand Eric's unique expertise in the development and application of advanced engineering methods for R & D, Process Engineering / Manufacturing and Product Development. Eric sucessfully led and applied electrode formulation design, mixing and coating technologies, SPC and DOE to resolve critical design and manufacturing issues for Li Ion batteries. Eric was also successful in leading and teaching others these advanced engineering methods. I highly recommend Eric to any business desiring to signficantly enhance staff capability via Innovation Associates Advanced Engineering courses or to directly add Expert Consulting Support by enlisting Eric in critical technology development and commercialization programs"

Reliability Engineering

Matthew Kendall
Vice President of Product Management and Corporate Marketing

"Our customers require that we project our product performance out into the future for at least 3 years and the Reliability Modeling program that Eric was able to construct, plus the expert analysis and documented performance completely satisfied the requirements.  With Eric’s expertise in our exact industry and his advanced modeling capabilities we were able to increase customer confidence by proactively addressing these concerns, and continue to grow our top line."

Electrochemical Development

Dr. Ningling Rao
Vice President Engineering

"Eric has a unique combination of expertise in Coatings technology, Electrochemistry and Advanced Engineering methods which provides capabilities that we were unable to address with our own substantial staff expertise.  I highly recommend any company facing technology challenges in these areas to seek his expertise in meeting their goals."

Formulations & Coating Technology

Mr. Rod Eaton
Senior Formulations & Coatings Engineer 

“I first met Eric Dix in 1981 and over the past 28 years have worked closely with him on several high technology projects and programs in multiple states throughout the U.S..  His expertise in engineering methods combined with vast business experience are unsurpassed in my 35 years industry career.  In addition to our project work, I’ve personally attended multiple courses he has conducted and his teaching style and connection with the class is exceptional.   On a personal level, Eric is a great person to work and builds excellent relationships with everyone from senior management to the operators on the production floor.  I highly recommend his services to companies needing this type of expertise, capability and integrity to meet their goals.”

Statistical Process Control & Design of Experiments

John Gordon
Owner, Product Design Engineers LLC

“I have worked professionally with Eric Dix for 15 years, beginning my relationship in Belfast NI in 1993 on a 3 year, $60 million program bringing  a new chemical coatings technology to market.   It was an exceptionally complex program as we were concurrently developing the product design, equipment engineering build and process development effort simultaneously.  Implementing this program would not have been possible without Eric’s significant expertise in Advance Engineering methods including Design of Experiments, Chemical formulation and Statistical Process Control.   I have since worked with him on 3 additional programs in the United States and highly recommend his consulting and unique courses for any organization needing to deploy advanced engineering capabilities in combination with extensive industry expertise.”
