QA Managers are a harassed lot in PSUs already neck deep in delivering production volumes by deadlines, the upper management is typically biased towards meeting production goals, in high tech/precision products, this strategy backfires.
I think part of the explanation lies in the lack of good vocational training. In Germany a plumber, mechanic, or electrition has to be follow an elaborate programme of training. First 3 years of vocational training, then 2 years of apprentership, under a "skill master". Finally the person is given a practical task to prove his/her skill. Finally the person is awarded a certificate. Even the cleanres have to undergo training.
The person takes pride in his job and is respected.
While I stayed in a hotel in India, I had problems with the hot water tank. An "electrition" came in to fix it. I would call him a self thought unprofessional. His skilles of wireing and mounting was just way below standards. When he left the gyser was not placed in level, he had made large holes and the work was just horrible.
I suspect the manufacturing sector has to do with an untrained workforce. An engineer may be good at the design board, but he is not trained for parctical cabling.
