Not Ready!

A friend and I started this a while back at a conference while enjoying a couple of refreshments.  Think of the old Jeff Foxworthy bit “You might be a redneck”, instead the tag line is; “You’re probably not ready for Weibull.”

We had some real fun with it…  If your PM/PdM backload is larger than all the man hours you have for the entire year…. You’re probably not ready for Weibull.

If your Operations Manager ignores the Low Oil light in his own car and just keeps driving, you’re probably not ready for Weibull.

Feel free to join in, the winner will receive a free copy of my RCM Blitz book!
