Trip to Control Instrument Co., August 27, 28, 29 and September 3, 1952
Paine, B. B.
After we instructed them in regard to proper soldering of connections, Control Instrument Co. and their subcontractor have increased greatly the quality of Burroughs units on our oder. The delay in meeting the promised delivery schedule is primarily due to poor coordination in procuring and delivering to the subcontractor the necessary components, and to the lack of complete parts lists and drawings. On our next order, if any, we are assured of obtaining units built to our standard of quality and delivered on schedule. Control Instrument Co. will also attempt to make the several changes in layout and components that we desire.
People: Larry Langlais (Contract Representative), Harold Akst (Head of Product Engineering Section), Johnny Barrett (Product Engineer on our order), Stuart Bryant (Head of Test Department), Jasper Jeffries (In charge of inspection on our order), Walter Lang (Engineering), Joseph Chedaker (Burroughs engineer, expediting our order), Bob Hayworth (Burroughs engineer doing video testing), Bill Voss (Burroughs technician making spot inspections), Irving Kornfeld (Head of Electronics @ Nucleonics, Inc.), Lou Schwartz (Production foreman), Willie --- (In charge in absence of Schwartz).
