Yes now I see why for the rising cost of sw paints.Now I dont feel so bad about their rising prices and willing to pay whatever.Never realized all the hassles and hardwork they go thru.They deserve a raise. Cover the Earth. I need a paint that will cover my walls.

That is quite an operation they have there. Automation like that is what gives them a pricing advantage over smaller competitors who do everything (or nearly everything) by hand. Little to no labor costs involved in the manufacture of the product, outside of the addition of additives and quality control.

I received the following email yesterday, it reminded me of that SW production line.


Quote:
A toothpaste factory had a problem: they sometimes shipped empty boxes,
without the tube inside.

This was due to the way the production line was set up, and people with
experience in designing production lines will tell you how difficult it
is to have everything happen with timings so precise that every single
unit coming out of it is perfect 100% of the time. Small variations in
the environment (which cant be controlled in a cost-effective fashion)
mean you must have quality assurance checks smartly distributed across
the line so that customers all the way down to the supermarket don't get
pissed off and buy another product instead.

Understanding how important that was, the CEO of the toothpaste factory
got the top people in the company together and they decided to start a
new project, in which they would hire an external engineering company to
solve their empty boxes problem, as their engineering department was
already too stretched to take on any extra effort.

The project followed the usual process: budget and project sponsor
allocated, RFP, third-parties selected, and six months (and $8 million)
later they had a fantastic solution on time, on budget, high quality and
everyone in the project had a great time.

They solved the problem by using high-tech precision scales that would
sound a bell and flash lights whenever a toothpaste box would weigh less
than it should. The line would stop, and someone had to walk over and
yank the defective box out of it, pressing another button when done to
re-start the line.

A while later, the CEO decides to have a look at the ROI of the project:
amazing results! No empty boxes ever shipped out of the factory after
the scales were put in place. Very few customer complaints, and they
were gaining market share.

"That's some money well spent!" he says, before looking closely at the
other statistics in the report.

It turns out, the number of defects picked up by the scales was 0 after
three weeks of production use.

It should've been picking up at least a dozen a day, so maybe there was
something wrong with the report.

He filed a bug against it, and after some investigation, the engineers
come back saying the report was actually correct.

The scales really weren't picking up any defects, because all boxes that
got to that point in the conveyor belt were good.

Puzzled, the CEO travels down to the factory, and walks up to the part
of the line where the precision scales were installed.

A few feet before the scale, there was a $20 desk fan, blowing the empty
boxes out of the belt and into a bin.

"Oh, that," says one of the workers, " one of the guys put it there
'cause he was tired of walking over every time the bell rang."
