INSTRUCTIONS TO SORTING DEPARTMENT:
SPECIAL PROJECT TO FIX ORDER #888
Five long, blue plastic bins have been placed over by the overhead door. Piled on the other side of this room, near the time clock, are several thousand steel rods of varying lengths. All of those rods must be sorted by length and placed in the bins.
Bin “1” is for rods that are four to five meters long.
Bin “2” is for rods that have a length of over five meters, up to six meters.
Bin “3” is for rods that have a length of over six meters, up to eight meters.
Bin “4” is for rods that have a length of over eight meters, up to ten meters.
Bin “5” is for warped or unsmoothed rods. These will not be accepted.
If these rods are not all sorted correctly, the customer will reject the order. We cannot afford to let that happen again. Work as quickly as you can because Friday is the deadline for delivery of the order.
According to the instructions shown, what is a condition for project success other than delivery on time?
