About Acme

I work at a real company and I am writing about real people. However, I am writing my own opinions and I am not setting out to embarrass anyone, so I am trying to give my company and coworkers a degree of privacy.

I will edit posts and comments if I feel they are too explicit in identifying parties involved. Nevertheless it is possible that the company or the people will be recognized, and in that case I ask you to remember that this is a personal web log.

Acme is located in the United States. It has local, national, and international suppliers and customers. A principle product where I work is tools. We have machining and assembly functions in the factory. It’s a site with a long history, and it has narrowly survived some tough times in American manufacturing. We are trying to use Lean and Six Sigma methods to increase efficiency.
