Subject: Engineering Management, Design Support

Dear Morris,

Managers responsible for the big picture and impacts of engineering, noted in your letter today, may be able to use Communication Metrics to meet that responsibility. Experimentation with engineers and with engineering management would show whether current practice, can be improved to reduce mistakes that cause rework, delay, extra cost and frustration.

Analysis in the record cites another example of how this process can be applied without the tenor of advocacy that has caused concern in the past.

Do you want to see how the subject index finds data, ideas, concepts or information about anything that pops into the mind, as discussed on May 24? You did not comment in your letter today about this subject, which nominally shows concurrance. To understand it, you need some experience.
