Yes,I read J. Edwards Deming "Out of the Crisis"
Actually your narrative is exactly how it works in manufacturing. Wasn't it W Edwards Deming?

Been over 8 years since I retired and everything in the above post rings true. Memories of the plant floor.

As a side note the standing joke on military contract screw ups was MIL-T-FD41 (Make It Like The Friggin Drawing For Once).

Incidentally the plant I worked it was the same plant where the US Rifle M14 were produced by TRW here in Cleveland (Euclid), Ohio. Before my time but the old test range was still there when I got there.

There was little to no room for scrap and or rework. Parts either comply to specifications called out in the drawing or someone has some explaining to do.
