$30 million

I was calculating how much my areas manufacture in a year (getting resume info) and the areas I manage do over $30 million a year. every time I think of millions and work, I think of one of my professors in college (cross) who said "each and everyone of you will be responsbile for million dollar budgets". i guess he was right. i'm sure dans worth more tho.

I'm not really solely responsible for anything though... I sometimes make recommendations and I contribute to fixing issues that the yield improvements could justify my salery in a short period of time.

i can make yield improvements. the easiest way to do it is to do it when quality isn't looking.

I hear you... if QA buys off on it we are good to go... Can we qual now? how about now? what if we... Oh that's good enough! ship it.

another example of quality: we are very stringent on some of our packaging, no scratches, dings, NOTHING cosmetically wrong. so about 5 months ago we got some shipments with minor blemishes. we caught them in production and asked the purchasers what we should do with them. after a few days the 'bad' ones disappeared. at the end of last quarter we ran out of parts. the 'bad' parts showed back up and QA signed off on us using them. hahah... I think I could work for QA. you don't have to know what your doing, just make sure you change your story at least every month or so...
