Notes

1. Errors are usually committed unintentionally; they are often forced to happen by “bad” Work-Processes (Statistical-Process-Control Theory [DEMING86, JURAN64 &74]).

2. Human errors in specification Processes lead to Defects in specification or evaluations.

For example, errors in Systems-Engineering Processes Result in (written) Engineering and contractual Specification-Defects.

3. SQC is a Means of Checking specifications to discover whether errors have been made. Any suspected violation of any applicable Specification-Rule is logged as an Issue.

To err is human.


Saying, and similar to Plutarch (A.D. 46-120) “For to err in opinion, though it be not part of wise men, is at least human.”
