This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report (continued from previous day's quote):
We just recently, at the end of February, supposedly revised the last program at PSD, the (model I.D.) EBU program, to have witness buyoffs for the drawing designated torques. (My QA supervisor) finally told them they would have to comply with the witnessing of drawing designated torques. They immediately wrote ELRs (Engineering Liaison Requests) to delete all the torque callouts from the drawings, as the QA witnessing of the torques added some minutes to the shop build schedule, and those minutes were not an equitable tradeoff to shop in return for the increased likelihood of safe flight benefiting (by correct levels of inspection of those torques) those people on the airplanes on which their EBUs would be installed (if they even considered such a tradeoff at all, as build times, and build times only, are what the shop leads and shop management seem only to consider).
