Operational Mistake 4 - One Glass Type / Table



An almost inconceivable mistake made by a minority of glass shop managers, is to try to use only one glass type per cutting table.  In some ways, it is an extension of the previous mistake above when the glass shop manager sees “mirror pairing” or “repeat pattern cutting”, as the only problem to be solved.  

This mistake may appear the same as Purchasing Mistake 15, but that mistake is made by company management.  This mistake however, is made by glass shop management who have the right equipment, but refuse to use it properly.  The consequences are however usually the same, causing the company to cease trading one way or another.
