Some Entertaining Distraction: The common man simplicity



A soap manufacturer in Japan received a complaint from a consumer that she received an empty box. An internal investigation revealed that once in a while, for reasons the company engineers could not explain, an empty box got through.

while management worked on a long term fix, a group of engineers were told to devise a way to prevent any empty boxes being shipped out. This was an expensive, high tech, scanning devise, causing a big inconvenience in production.

In the meantime, one of the line workers took it upon himself to rig up a temporary solution, while the engineers worked at perfecting their scanning equipment.

He placed a fan near the conveyor belt, where the sealed boxes came out.

Any empty boxes passing in front of the fan were simply blown off the line!!!!!!
