Young man,

A gentleman never badmouthes his ex employer regardless of what happened.

I for one am quite saddened by the demise of the Hovland Company.

Regards

This is one of those cases where to withhold the truth is as bad as lying. There is some good that came out of this, that is next. Guess I'm not a gentleman though, darn it!

Who you callin' young anyway!

'Young men' can still be forgiven for their mistakes....

All the audio companies have some dirt- do we really want to know or blackmouth them in this forum ?

Truth is not a mistake. And yes, so far nearly 2 thousand seekers of truth want to know about it.

You can forgive the young if you like. No youngsters live in my house.

Don't laugh, visual replenishment systems are quite "in" these days for lean manufacturing.

Yes,

Red, yellow, and green tags...Used like this....A wall full of metal draws with U shaped pieces of metal painted /clipped over the draw top kept in in the draws. When someone takes The parts down to half inventory the green tag is replaced with a yellow tag, when down to one left a red tag is fitted...with a glance at the wall Everyone can see straight away what you have and what you need. If its not been used for 6 months a purple tag is fitted to show (check if no longer in production)...Standard Lean practice..Cheap and effective.

Regards
M. Gregg

I love these stories! Keep them coming!

I paid my dues at Audionics back in the Seventies, but the industry was a little different back then. Once the cable-meisters came in, and prices skyrocketed ten to twenty-fold during the Eighties, the industry changed.

Well women do have better hearing ...
