This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report:
Another incident that points up the corruption of our Quality System: Our two unethical QA Lead’s and QA Management’s emphasis on not writing up defects per the unwritten BCAG Quality System, whereas the FAA-approved BCAG Quality System emphasizes the opposite, to document all nonconformities before delivery of the product:
On 4/4/01 at 12:30 PM: (Name), my lead of the time, arrived in the APU area, which was at that time in the fitcheck area of the building (the APU line is presently incorporated into the 737NG EBU line in the name of Lean Manufacturing, thereby overstressing the already overburdened line inspectors supporting that line, and forcing them to compromise their QA Procedures even more to support the delivery schedule, as per (my QA supervisor's) direction). (My QA Lead) said to me, "You’re not writing any tags, are you." I said "Not today." He then said, "I don’t want any tags written on these APUs.", additionally saying that the APUs were so simple that no NCRs needed to be written on them. I believe (name), APU mechanic, witnessed his comments. How did I remember this so clearly? I didn’t. I was documenting the unwritten BCAG Quality System even way back then. As I’ve said earlier, I’ve considered taking this action for at least a couple years, and have known, at least subconsciously, that I was working for a corrupt organization at least since the day after I inspected that skin lap job in 777 Body Structures.
