I was thinking of the "Trial and Error" model of manufacturing -
 
Consider a company that manufactures electrical switches.
For manufacturing n switches in n tries (ideal 100% : no defect),
the scope of an error increases as 1/n -> 0 (for very large "n" some error is inevitable).
Machine wear and tear could be one reason, operator error another.
 
Is there anything like the "Perfect Manufacturing Company" ? 
Personally I don't think so.
 
Do you agree ?  :out:

Decades of research in quality control, have shown there are always random errors in mfg..They can only be minimized by improvement in equipment, methods, employee training, materials, etc.
