They Do Still Exist

Being in Quality some 16 years now, I thought the dinosaur manufacturing facilities have all disappeared.

You know the ones, the shops that don't have a clue what Lean Manufacturing is. Or the benefits of good housekeeping, or knowing what a good quality system was.

I visited a potential new supplier on Thursday and holy crap, I couldn't believe what I saw.

And I thought in Michigan it was illegal to smoke in the workplace, they were smoking at the machines with huge puddles of oil on the floor.

Talk about a hazard.

Even we have to put up with, I mean even the Navy knows what Lean is.
