iino Spoke at Mie-Prefectural Office

January 28, 2003,Mie -- Dr. Kenji iino visited Mie prefectural government office to give a seminar about the "Study of Failure". Mie prefectural government is well known for its pronounced governor Mr. Masayasu Kitagawa, and his policy of breaking irrational past conventional rules.

Kitagawa opened the event and introduced iino to the audience. The 2 hour talk went through the introduction of the "Study of Failure" to the current research of predicting failure. One of the questions raised concerned how to deal with ISO9000. It was a popular question from those who sat through similar seminars by ASF. "Quality documentation and making them traceable is important," said iino, "however, it turns fruitless when those involved forget the real purpose and documentation itself start to appear like the goal."
