The idea that speeding up production in any setting sounds like a formula for disaster, yet for companies with products with high demand, speeding up production is crucial. Speeding up production to meet higher demands does mean higher revenue, increasing a company’s return on investment. The reasons to speed up production are best portrayed in the example of the Italian super carmaker Pagani. In making their emblems, also known as the rear Pagani logo, if they speed up production, workers can be allocated to other parts of the production process. Pagani would be more efficient by wasting less material, and manpower, and are able to produce around the clock without having to hire more workers.

Many consumers buy a Pagani because the firm focuses on hand production, hand assembly, and taking the time to slowly manufacture car parts. Many customers willing to spend the $1.4 million to buy a Pagani expect almost every aspect of it to be produced and assembled by hand, and to buy of the highest quality (1).
The best way to overcome the opposition lies in options. If customers want the emblems handmade in a 24 hour process then they can have the option to do so, but only if they pay extra. The realm of production is all about cutting cost and cutting cost will lead to labor cuts. Employees will undoubtedly be opposed at first, but if Pagani can reallocate most of its workforce to building other parts of the car, or developing a whole new car, some workers can be spared. Pagani can still emphasize the fact that most of the remaining parts of the car are hand built and assembled, it is just these small processes that are being converted into more efficient and cost effective processes. In the end it just seems like such a waste to spend so much time and money on something so seemingly insignificant that can be easily improved.

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning. Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Like all prostitutes, she was born both innocent and a virgin, and, as an adolescent, she dreamed of meeting the man of her life (rich, handsome, intelligent), of getting married (

    A SORROWFUL WOMAN The following short story is a study of the gradual disintegration of a human personality. In keeping with the "once upon a time" lead, the style is similar to a fairy tale except that "happily ever after" does not happen. The reader should consider the monotonously repetitive tasks taken over by the husband and later shared with the live in girl and compare these with the usual tasks of men in their jobs at the office or wherever. Then, consider how all of this relates to the final "legacy" of food, laundry, and sonnets. Once upon a time there was a wife and mother one

When we walk along, we may crush a beetle or simply cause a change in the air so that a fly ends up where it might never have gone otherwise. And if we think of the same example but with ourselves in the role of the insect, and the larger universe in the role we’ve just played, it’s perfectly clear that we’re affected every day by forces over which we have no more control than the poor beetle has over our gigantic foot as it descends upon it.
