Take Chinese scopes for example... they used to be all junk but now they are actually turning out some good glass. Still hit or miss but the quality is getting better.

This forum is only as good as YOU make it. Lets all work together and have a forum we can be proud of! But lets not forget to have FUN while we do it!

Happy shooting Dave Gillespie - (Sharp Shooter), you will be missed and remembered.

We will miss you Jerry Roberts - (woodyubet), you will not be forgotten.

We are better off from having known you Dean Stephens -(ampersand) It wont be the same around here without you.

ISO 9000 is a set of international standards on quality management and quality assurance developed to help companies effectively document the quality system elements to be implemented to maintain an efficient quality system. They are not specific to any one industry and can be applied to organizations of any size.

This quote misses much of the mark of ISO 9000. Having worked ALL my corporate years for two companies that taught and certified ISO 9000 and "lean" technology to manufacturers, I can speak thoroughly on this topic.

Though the "quality" attempted to maintain with ISO 9000 has some bearing... "maintain" is really more the operative word here. Someone can turn out a junk product and get it and their process of making it, ISO 9000 certified as the importance of the certification is much more about duplicity than quality. If you can make that same POS EVERY time and it's EXACTLY like every other POS the company turns out, they can apply for and receive certification. Doesn't mean said company will still be in biz in a year if EVERY piece they produce is certifiably the same junk, but certified they can be.

Sorry to see you go Dean. Never enough time and it makes
us all realize just what being mortal is. You have been a true friend to me
and I will miss you every day.

This is true^^^^
The certification is more a cert for the process than for the product. It's a kudos for finding the least expensive (most efficient), reproducible, and consistent way of building stuff. Sometimes this ends up very good, with very high quality, sometimes, not so much. The idea (today) is that companies try hard to make good parts. The ISO standard is not easy to achieve actually and although fly by night companies can earn the cert, it is not cost effective in the short term to do so. Consistency of manufactured parts almost necessitates high quality equipment. :dunno: So unless the part made is really expensive it just doesn't make sense too much sense anymore to invest in the infrastructure and not return a profit. It does happen though. The sad fact is that people have very low expectations for quality these days. Even those that think they have high standards really don't because there is such a narrow span of quality goods.

May we always realize the cost of our freedom. We can never repay them, but the very least we can do is uphold the ideals that they died protecting and honor them in the choices we make each day.

Just because you are unnatural, bizarre, bring problems on yourself, and don't fit in does not mean I dislike you...well, yeah it does
