"It really helped my evolution"

I started very young at Michelin, after an internship at the end of engineering studies. After interviews, I integrated the service in charge of noise and comfort performance analysis. I then expressed to my manager the wish to do more management. Three types of people helped me in my career development: - My manager with whom I have regularly evaluated my skills and my areas of progress. - Colleagues in positions I'm interested in who informed me about their missions - My career manager with whom I validated this prospect of the future. That's how I took the responsibility of a team in charge of customer placements for tourism, trucks and two wheels.

Jackie Branscomb

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.

The main jobs in the field of research and development at Michelin

Although it is not very visible, a tire is an object of incredible complexity. An object that will have to adapt to changes in global mobility, new forms of mobility, digitization of the market, environmental constraints and meet the new needs of our customers. That's why at Michelin, research and development covers 350 different areas of expertise and a very large number of professions.
