When we build a factory, we construct a building, purchase and install some amount of equipment, and hire and train some number of personnel. When we mix the equipment and the personnel, some behavior emerges and it is very difficult to predict what this behavior will be. In part, this is because the equipment will exhibit less than perfect availability due to pseudo-random breakdowns. But a major contribution to this unpredictability is the fact that humans who have been exposed to the same… CONTINUE READING
