Continuous Improvement

I've blogged before about quality issues re Software Engineering, and in particular continuous improvement.

Well, it doesn't just apply to Software Engineering, but Engineering generally 9and a lot more besides).

From the ABC :
A body representing Australian engineers wants the Federal Government to set up a task force to inspect the damage done to Australia's embassy in Jakarta.
Engineers Australia associate director Athol Yates says non-government engineers need to be given the chance to inspect the embassy.

"We're calling on the Government to establish a task force of engineers to review the blast damage at the embassy in Jakarta," he said.

"The purpose of this government-private sector task force is to identify what worked well and where improvements could be made and apply this knowledge to Australian buildings overseas."

Mr Yates says there will be several benefits, including helping engineers design stronger and safer buildings in Australia for areas near terrorist targets.
Exactly, and as soon as this is done, the better.

Note: this is not a Witch-Hunt, looking for blame. It's looking for ways of making things better, regardless.
