An actual excerpt (virtually word-for-word) from a recent business conversation:
"The current corporate initiative is to achieve bottom line improvement, to a 'far-exceeds' level, across the diagonal, with no more than a thirty percent breakage. The question is, 'how sustainable is that'? We have created the diagnonal, and built in a thirty-percent breakage factor, but are now four months into the fiscal year, and have already exceeded our breakage. We've re-aligned our Ci assets, and have determined that the best course of action will be to incorporate FMEA's, along with various Poke Yoke and 5-S projects into the deck in order to recapture as much as possible."
