One of the great reliefs of being retired now, is not having to deal with unbuildable plans. So often the designers never looked at the field conditions. They put plans on paper and decreed that they were good. Usually they weren't. They also would have conflicts from one sheet to another(different designers with no review and coordination). Slipshod is the state of the art.

 

For ten years I designed and built bridges and road projects. I did the survey and drew the maps. I did the design, drew the drawings and wrote the specs. Because of continuity and experience my projects went on schedule(except 1 where we had three floods that summer) and on or under budget.

 

Now days the norm is "get the design done fast and we will charge extra for correcting".

 

Willies' post is humorous but that kind of designing happens everyday. Good Luck, Rick

Yep, I think we are too late!  There have been engineers like this out there for quite some time.  Just work on today's cars.

They start out as good ideas and then Marketing gets ahold of them. Anyone else a fan of the Dilbert comic and cartoon series?

Those are pretty funny, Wolfgang... some of the others are pretty funny as well, even with my limited German, like the Oil Change--Man vs Woman.... :rolling:
