This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report (continued from previous day's quote):
The tooling people would just get in the way of the mechanics "pushing the garbage out the door." So they simply don’t do them (the required structural conformance investigation), and just tell us, their underlings, to write a tag saying the tube won’t fit, and have the tube shop make a special tube to fit the most likely discrepant structure. If we had any guts as a QA department, and stood up to our masters, we would tell shop "no structural investigation, no tag," but we don’t have any guts.
