Rob, I have to agree to a point. When large coprporations set up quality systems of processes and procedures, changes become rigid and inflexible to the point that many people do not want to do the work to make any change (even when it is benefical). I have worked at a large manufacturing facility that it was nearly impossible to upgrade a simple proximity sensor. Then I worked at a small shop that I could completely re-engineer a robot cell with little resistance!
