It occurred to me to ask if this means anything to you, I don’t know how many people know these things anymore. Call it curiosity on my part and a puzzle on yours. Scenario:
In a meeting with a new client yesterday, we were discussing possibilities for shifting things around in his factory (he wants to expand). I made what seemed to be the most obvious suggestions but I was puzzled and thought to myself -why wouldn’t he know? He’s a smart guy and he’s been a garmento for 25 years. It wasn’t making sense until Client said, “my building isn’t shaped like a ____, it’s shaped like a ______”. In unison and surprise, my companion (another garmento) and I said “oh”. I changed the subject by asking him about something else (rotary converters) because there was nothing else to say.
The questions to tease yourself with this weekend are, why does building shape matter? What shape should a factory be?
And as ever, here’s this week’s entries from the archives. Have a great weekend.
