Summary
For years, automotive supplier GAFFER has been able to survive using its old management and production practices. But times have been changing and GAFFER's future looks bleak. Jake is a retired production planner, reflecting on his long history with the GAFFER factory and what is currently happening. He wonders how things might change as their main customer wants a completely new part to be not only produced, but also designed at GAFFER. Just when the old management is about to mess up the relationship with the customer, there is a new factory manager. He starts turning the factory around and Jake shares all of the juicy stories with his coffee mate, Ben
