When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out
that the pens wouldn’t work at zero gravity (ink won’t flow down to the
To solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12 million. They
developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater,
in Practically any surface including crystal and in a temperature range
from below freezing to over 300 degrees C.
And what did the Russians do…??
They used a Pencil !!!
One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the
case f the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan’s biggest
cosmetics Companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had
a Soap box that was empty.
Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line,
which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery
department. For some reason, one soap box went through the assembly line
empty. Management asked its engineers to solve the problem. Post-haste,the
engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with
high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soap boxes
through the line to make sure they were not empty.
No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent a
whoopee amount to do so. But when a rank-and-file employee in a small
was posed with the same problem, he did not get into complications of
X-rays,etc., but instead came out with another solution. He bought a
industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched
the fan on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the
empty boxes out of the line.
Always look for simple solutions. Devise the simplest possible solution
that solves the problems.

#1) By lifting and pressing it by your hand….
#2) By Bombarding it with a missile.

Moller International, creators of that stunning red flyingcar prototype seen web-wide, has started production on the M200G, the consumer-ready derivative of the M200X volantor, and is readying the machine for the open market. Depending on engine costs, the M200G will cost between $90,000-$125,000.According to the press release, the machine can hover 10 feet off the ground and cruises at a speed of 50 mph. Because the M200G is classified as a recreation device and not an aircraft, it is not subject to FAA regulations and anybody can operate one. No official release date has been announced.

Well Subway has gone worst. I was one of the regular eater at Subway, but now I have to shift my places. Not only theyhave phatic service and taste but also its getting expensive day by day. They have added more indian style subs (which in lot of means - not good) cause now they are neither indian subs or western. Also who will pay Rs.90 for a six inch veggie patty sub as compared to BigMac is going for Rs.35. Also they put very less veggies..and we have to tell them each and everything thing. I have worked in Subway while I was in college and I know how the subway guys have crafted their subs. They call the makers as sandwich artist. But here the staff is all youth, western wannabes.. lazy and mostly don’t use the commonsense. The permises is also not clean, they don’t know what the red wrapper means and what the green. I have tried 4 different stores in last 3 months..and the response was same. I think subway needs to evalute this store since they are in expansion phase. They have opened up 4 new stores in Ahmedabad itself and I feel bad…for subway..since I like subway and they are not doing good. Thumbs down…for Subway from Ahmedabad.
