Reflections on quality assurance in manufacturing

24th June 2016 The issue of the quality of components manufactured is a topic that comes up time and again. Let us remind ourselves of the terms QC and QA. In days gone by, people referred to QC, for ‘quality control’.  In essence, what that meant was that, when something had been made, it was tested to check... 

Always do the sums when dealing with emotive social issues

17th June 2016 The issue of land and land claims continues to irritate me. Much of it is so unreasonable.  It is also, of course, highly emotive, so people are often scared to even venture into the discussion. In any debate, on almost any topic, one should, early on, carry out the mathematical calculations. As... 

We can’t afford to let malaria take hold

10th June 2016 Malaria is a thoroughly unpleasant disease and people who have had it report that it really is nasty. I have spoken to a number of people who have recovered from malaria, and they all say, not again, please. Of course, malaria can also very easily be fatal.  So, anybody contracting malaria has... 

Gautrain fee increase announcement indicative of poor management

3rd June 2016 Operators of the Gautrain have yet again increased the fees for the service and this irritates me. What particularly irritated me was a Gautrain spokesperson saying in the newspaper: “The Gautrain increases fees every year to keep up with inflation-related increases. Our increases are related to... 

Take emotion out of nuclear debate

27th May 2016 The entire nuclear power debate is an emotional issue in some quarters. This is a great pity because the best way to handle it is with calm, reasoned professionalism. It is a pity that this knee-jerking emotional response happens at all, but even worse is when it happens with people who should... 

Be wary of self-proclaimed environmental campaigners

20th May 2016 The concept of environmentalism is undoubtedly good. People across the plant need to have a mental frame of reference in which they appreciate living in a clean world – no litter, no waste chemicals in rivers, and so on. But it goes further than that. An appreciation of the balance of nature and... 

Misguided bonfire

13th May 2016 So, Kenya did burn its 130 t of elephant ivory. There was a dramatic picture in the newspapers of these huge piles of Ivory, beautifully stacked into patterned pyres that looked more like a major celebration than a funeral. To me it was a funeral; all those elephants died and their tusks were... 

The Hawks’ misplaced focus

6th May 2016 The special police unit, the Hawks, has been in the news a great deal of late. Unfortunately, much of the media coverage is not for the correct reasons. There have been High Court comments concerning the head of the Hawks and much of the commentary is not complimentary. I would like the Hawks in... 

It takes more than just a good coach for a team to excel

29th April 2016 I have been watching the performance of various national sports teams and it is an interesting exercise to contemplate what makes a winning team. I am of the opinion that it is virtually entirely psychology. 

Striking workers holding society to ransom

22nd April 2016 The Pikitup refuse workers in Johannesburg were on strike for about month. While they were on strike, refuse piled up in the city centre.  This was not only unsightly, but also a potential health hazard.
