Apparently the Apple Co. decided to have some of its iPhone parts manufactured in Japan as a trial project.
In the specifications, they set out that they will accept only 5 defective parts per 20,000.
When the delivery came in there was an accompanying letter.
‘We, Japanese people, had a tough time understanding American Business practices.
But the five defective parts per 20,000 have been separately manufactured and have been included in the consignment in a separate packaging clearly mentioned
‘Defective pieces as per requirement, not for use’.
Hope the products are to your satisfaction.’
