Perfection and Why You Need to be Specific in Your Requirements

Apparently, the American computer giant IBM decided to have some parts manufactured in Japan as a trial. In the specifications, they set standard that they will accept only three defective pieces per 10,000 pieces.

When the delivery came to IBM there was a letter accompanying it.

“We, Japanese people, had a hard time understanding North American business practices. But the three defective parts per 10,000 pieces have been separately manufactured and have been included in the consignment in a separate package mentioned — ‘Defective pieces as required; not for use.’ Hope this meets your requirement”

In Some Workplaces Perfection is a Habit, Not An Attitude!

I am a Freelance consultant, I’m passionate about creating dynamic applications. With 10+ years technical experience as well as working on major application systems for top down.

I have extensive software engineering experience, recently I focus on Scala/Java and JavaScript. On the other hand, I have experience with C# and .net framework/core. I focus on integrating applications that are built against different frameworks and can run on different platforms.

Scalability, efficiency and performance are key topics for any software, that’s why I keep track of the newest technologies, I never underestimate the power of the cloud, that’s why I do believe in using this power with “edge applications” to expand software’s and solutions to a new level.

Being a software engineer who understand the business as well as my team, looking at things from different perspectives. Being open and honest and investing in relationship makes a big difference.
