    Honda versus Harley

    How a Honda employee bakes a potato:
    -Preheat new, high-quality oven to 350 F
    -Insert Idaho potato
    -Go do something productive for 45 minutes
    -Check for doneness, then remove perfectly baked potato from oven and serve

    How a Harley Davidson employee bakes a potato:
    -Instruct an Idaho potato supplier to preheat the oven to 350 F
    -Demand that the supplier show you how to he turned the dial to reach 350 F, and have him come up with documentation from the oven manufacturer proving that it was calibrated properly
    -Review documentation, then have supplier check the temperature using a sophisticated temperature probe
    -Direct supplier to insert potato and set time for 45 minutes
    -Have supplier open oven to prove potato has been installed correctly, and request a free study proving that 45 minutes is the ideal time to bake a potato of this size and variability due to orientation within the oven
    -Request a Six Sigma Study showing variable cook times for various potato sizes and orientations
    -Check potato for doneness after 10 minutes
    -Check potato for doneness after 11 minutes
    -Check potato for doneness after 12 minutes
    -Become impatient with supplier (Why is this simple potato taking so long to bake?). Demand status reports every five minutes.
    -Check potato for doneness after 15 minutes
    -After 35 minutes, conclude that potato is nearing completion. Pass through Gate review reporting all Green status
    -Congratulate supplier, then update your boss on all the great work you’ve done, despite having to with such an uncooperative supplier
    -Remove potato from oven after 40 minutes of baking, as a cost save without loss of function or quality vs. the original 45 minute baking time
    -Serve potato
    -Wonder aloud what on earth those Japanese folks are doing over there to make such good, low-cost baked potatoes that people seem to like better than Ford potatoes

    Honda versus Harley

    That is so Fokking true!
    I fell of my chair reading this!

    Believe it or not, the Japanese follow quality control proceedures, which isn't that far off of what was written for Harley.
    They have a Japanese industrial standard, and an Iso standard which, is being incorporated world wide. Their quality control surpasses anyone!
    I have to conform to theses standards where I work, because we manufacture things for Jap companies, that have come stateside.
    It is a Monster paperchase!

    The only difference between Honda and Harley is, is that Honda designs, manufactures, and assembles Hondas, all in one place.

    Harley needs Porche, Nippondenso, Showa, Burger King, and Kotex to build their bikes..
