Shift change and variability

Alan Perlis, a mid-twentieth century computer scientist stated, “One man’s constant is another man’s variable.” It’s a profound statement especially when considering the dynamics of operations running two shifts. More often than not, adjustments and settings are changed when one machine operator takes over for the next as every equipment operator has their own method of operation and adjustment, this is a fact, and it’s good as long as the information is being shared with the next shift operator. Once again, communication is the key to success and a way of maintaining consistency in production.
