Giving high tech the K.I.S.S. off
Back in the days when I designed things for a living, I had this axiom drilled into my brain: Keep It Simple, Stupid [K.I.S.S.]
It seems many engineers in the powder coating industry didn't have the same upbringing that I did. I constantly see simple applications being complicated with high-tech gizmos, often with no regard for economic or maintenance concerns. Such a near-sighted approach or automation seems a fitting topic for this issue on the automotive industry because it's an industry that's often driven by the motto, Give us every high-tech gizmo, not by the question, Which gizmos make the most economic sense?
