A frequent complaint to a Broadway play doctor is that the production is having trouble in the third act. A frequent response is, “Your problem with the third act is the first act.” Similarly, if the expectations for an automated manufacturing system are not defined accurately in the design stage, the finished system might not deliver what the customer expected.
“The hardest part of a project typically is the last 5 percent – making sure the customer is completely happy,” insists Scott Woida, Midwest Engineering Systems (MWES) Inc. president and owner. “When you’ve really defined what that piece of equipment is going to do and your customer has the same expectations that you’re working toward, it makes that last 5 percent much easier. That’s where we see a lot of people get into trouble – where the expectations of the project have not been as well defined. We go to great lengths to make sure everyone on the front-end of the job understands exactly what it is we are delivering.”
