Replying to LO17249 --


Deming's ideas have been applied to the construction industry. A speaker
at the last AME convention in San Antonio spoke of how he applied them to
his company. He focus on time to provide the service and reduced his
vender base to obtain better reliability just like Toyota.

The first step is putting Deming's ideas into the management mind sets so
actions follow the ideas. After that it is easy and applies to any field.
