      Good question Reece, to be honest my job is not really based around doin experiments becuase I am not an engineer doing research- if that makes sense?

      I am doing a day-to-day and longer term startegy role looking after the maintenance of our machines. The closest thing to experiments that I do is trialling alternative parts from different suppliers and of different designs for our machines. This is to see if they work better or just as well, the benefits to this might be reduced costs or increased efficiency of the machines.

      Does this make sense?

      Hi Reece,

      I don’t know how many experiments I have done, but there have been a lot! Whenever I think of a new idea I perform some experiments, and I get to make up what they are. It’s a lot of fun because you can be as much of a crazy scientist as you like (provided that the experiments are safe).
