    There’s a few Motorola types here who think that Motorola wrote the book on quality and SS is how the world turns.  I wonder how people would react if the head of Ford said “A great week … 80% yield  … only 20% of production is waste “
    Motorola techniques might be fine for Motorola but they are irrelevant to 99% of manufacturing and even more irrelevant to the 93% of employees who work in service.

    Dave,
    Motorola did not write the book on quality, but they have had tremendous success by applying six sigma methodology on top of a Quality System that was instrumental in their winning of the Malcolm Baldridge Award. Some tremendous thinkers have been involved in Motorola’s quest for quality. I have never worked for Motorola, but I applied their approach to a small company and won IBM, Intel, and other quality awards for the improvements that we made.

    Enough said about that.
    Your statistics are impressive and make you sound like you really have data. You don’t.
    There are several of us on here that were at Motorola and also AlliedSignal and GE. What you learned about any of this is what we decided you needed to know.

    What about Dave stepping into the 21st century rather than dragging on with this old soap opera of who did whom at what point in time at what corporation? Dave’s not only irrelevant, he’s just plain backward and boring, a hippie who can’t let go of his continously repeated flower power pop song about the evils of six sigma … .

    You seem to be having a bit of a significant social event. Trying to do your best rally the masses thing and you are so full of s__t nobody is buying it. Motorola certainly didn’t write the book but it also produced a lot of people who understand quality much better than you do.

    Isn’t that what they say at Ford every day?  Wasn’t their 3rd Quarter Operating Loss something around $8 billion?  Come on, Dave, where’s the data?

    Do you have some kind of proxy that gives you the right to speak for “All Other GE Employees” I would doubt that.
    Stan doesn’t appear to suffer fools very easily with the exception of Monk. Is that your real issue?

    Lewbowski – yes, Jeff gave me a special proxy to speak for all of GE.  Stany is insulting and rude and needs to come out of the closet.
