Jackie

Tire Performance Research Engineer

Jackie Branscomb
...it is currently being used worldwide within Michelin.

I have spent the past six years in the tire performance research and development group specializing first in tire noise and comfort. Over the last year, I have transitioned to focusing on tire handling. I have been called on as a key expert to help improve tire performance for noise, comfort, and handling for many vehicle manufacturers’ new vehicle development programs. I am currently working on developing new simulation capabilities for the handling performance with the goal of using simulated data to design better tires more quickly and reduce manufacturing costs during development.

One of my most interesting projects was to design and implement a new tool for analyzing tire tread patterns to reduce the variation in the acoustic content, and it is currently being used worldwide within Michelin. During the development of this tool, I had the opportunity to analyze historical data, instrument vehicles with microphones to take my own new data, plan tire builds to help validate the simulations, program the prototype tool and design the user interface. This new tool was used in the development of a new tire line and helped to significantly reduce the acoustic level.

Handling and Performance

The main goals of my current position are to understand the physics behind tire handling, develop and run simulations to predict the handling, and to be responsible for the test methods used to evaluate tires for the handling performance. It is exciting to have the opportunity to work with all of the vehicle manufacturers to develop new tires through design, simulation, and testing that exceed their expectations for the manufacturers’ next generation vehicles.

Noise and Comfort Performance

As the noise and comfort performance leader for North America, I used simulation and data analysis to focus on the noise and comfort performance of tires. Tire noise and comfort is a field that not many people are familiar with, so it was a very interesting role to learn about the acoustic response of tires and how complex the multiple mechanisms are that create tire noise.

Collaborate

As a member of the performance team, which has a worldwide network, I regularly communicate and collaborate with my colleagues in other zones, and my roles have given me the opportunity to travel internationally on several occasions for seminars and training as well as travel within the U.S. to different vehicle manufacturers for joint tests and other collaborations.

In my first days at Michelin I saw that the workplace was safe and well organized; I also saw open and honest communication between the teams. When I met my new colleagues in online meetings, I felt a lot of support from them and their willingness to help me. I was very pleased to see the good planning that made it easy for me to learn and start performing my daily activities.

I feel I have become more adaptable, I found a very supportive team and an interesting activity that helps me to develop and learn new skills.

Working remotely, we can build a bridge with someone using digital tools

I was used to seeing people’s first reactions, to be able to guess if my message had reached them, and to see if they needed more information and support from my part. Over the internet, all this is not so easy to guess. The first time when I welcomed a newcomer online, I was a bit anxious in the beginning, but after the first meeting with my new colleague, things started falling into place. It was a pleasant surprise to discover than we can communicate well, even if we are not face-to-face and that we can build a bridge with someone using digital tools. All-in-all, it was a positive experience for me. I was nervous in the beginning, but I continued with the joy of having the opportunity to add a new member to the team and meeting a nice person to interact with!

In Michelin I grew, I developed personally and professionally, and I can say I had (and I still have) that great experience in my career. Also, in Michelin I made new friends, real friends - those people that you can count on anytime, to talk all day long, to go out and party. And regarding the workplace, well, even in the stressful closing days you can feel well and relaxed in the office.

During my internship I was working in Finance, with a focus on Accounts Payable and Account Receivable. I verified and registered invoices and I made accounting reconciliations on different accounts. Also, I had the possibility to work in other teams in Finance, if someone needed me, such as the Costing or Credit teams. The opportunity to be involved in different activities during my internship helped me improve my skills and knowledge in the domain and advance inside the company.
