Brilliant Line!

I just loved this Line-

Unfortunately, because we engineers are such experts in fault-fixing, our esteemed-and-mighty management does not require our customers to include such mundane details as actually describing the failure mode of whatever they send in for repair. So, we were forced to guess.

Engineers and Management-Why the Twain never meets...

Have you seen the issues Management tends to raise with Engineers?

We Spend too much time Experimenting rather than focussing on getting the Job Done.

We are not that focussed on the Bottomline.

We are not Good Communicators.


AS I said before the Twain never meets.

Would have to agree,Wholeheartedly here!

Just wondering about who takes the blame for Incomplete Data-Sheets which can end up doing so much Damage to Consumer Products in the Long-run?

I have to say its largely the Overseeing Engineer/Designer;Unless he/she was under strict instructions from Senior Management to give only Limited/Restricted Info in the Data-Sheet.

too true

I cannot agree more that a good datasheet is really important to a successul product development program.  If the datasheet is not accurate or has critical data missing one sometimes can find issues too late in the product development cycle which is a very expensive proposition.
