I don't understand this ? Topic is repair shops, as I said I don't know auto but would expect they are at least as smart as defense ? I know Westinghouse a little, dealt with their on-site guys and they were good. Knew their poop backwards and forwards, wrote new execs for controls, would not let the manufacturer in even under warranty to see how they had improved the machines.Come on, EG, you know better. You've criticized the "Just in Time" system enough times to know how it works, that it doesn't need to be the OEM's problem (or even the Tier 1) at all. $300/hr for a Sunday afternoon's work is well in-bounds to make sure Monday's parts hit the loading dock right on schedule.
I would expect something similar from an auto plant. No matter the costs, they are not going to be calling some local repair shop to fix their stuff. I hope ?
