FUN but REAL: We busted the myth “Haste makes waste“

In the manner of mythbusters, we decided to bust one of the most widespread myths – quality work cannot be done quickly.

This is an archive article published 11/06/2015. Some information may no longer be up to date and in line with the current state. Please contact us in case of interest.

We needed:


● stopwatch

● plier cutters (for example, 1490491-1 or 1116571-1)

● common two-core cable (for example, with cross section of 0,33mm2 to 0,52mm2) or individual single-core cables with similar cross section
– outer cable diameter can be from 5,6mm to 7,4mm

● connector TE Connectivity series CoolSplice - 293545-2 – we have chosen this one because we heard that:
FUN but REAL: We busted the myth “Haste makes waste“




1. connectors from this producer are really top (we did not want to risk the failure due to incorrect choice of connector)
2. this one has an extra cover IP65 / IP67 – it is filled with gel
3. it is transparent – great visual connection check
4. it can withstand temperatures from -40°C to +85°C
5. it can withstand current up to 5A at 600VAC resp. 400VDC

First trial didn’t work.

Colleague dedicated to quick work didn’t need pliers as he already had the short cable ready – obviously, it has two ends. He quickly inserted one cable end into one end of the connector and the other cable end in the second end of the connector and pushed the buttons. Colleague with stopwatch didn’t even used them.

Second trial

We exchanged a colleague that failed with stopwatch. This time, everything went smoothly. Quick colleague prepared short cable again. He inserted it, pushed and that was it. 6 seconds. Visual check determined no error.

Myth busted!


P.S.
Second colleague with stopwatches admitted after a week that he forgot to use the stopwatch – he just pretended everything is OK and reported the time that was just his estimate. He’s not working in our company anymore, but the myth will remain busted forever.
