    In automotive, machining, plant layouts, cell/line, human analogs are all metric. For me at least. I haven't had much to do with avionics over the years and that was tooling for cells and it was all metric. Odd how some industries are so far behind the times (and make things harder on themselves)
    While I agree metric is easier to use, I have to disagree they’re making it harder on themselves or that they’re behind the times. You can’t make that call.

      Yes I can actually. When things are designed in English and ordered in metric the limit of error goes out the window making the control of dimensional variation 3 fold harder to manage. This increases error and slows time to market. For example. I can order a 19.00 locator pin but my product has a 3/4 inch hole. Either I spend a ton to get a 3/4 (0.75) inch pin or pay a ton to get specialty punches to end up to be at the same place with the 19.00 hole and pin and normalized dimensional tolerance. Beyond this simple example imagine this 13,000 fold every Day on everything. and the massive no value cost incurred.

      By simply giving up the arcane English system will simplify their lives and will put money in their pockets.

        So you’re saying the aviation industry uses both? You don’t know everything bro.

          Reading in FUNdament. I clearly stated I haven't worked in aviation in decades. The last 2 companies I delt with, in aviation, were Boeing and McDonall Douglas. Both were completely metric. Even their architectural designs.

          I worked on the C17 program for McDonnell Douglas then Boeing for 26 years. It was English as Pigger stated.

              As a UK educated Mechanical Engineer, I get the best jobs.

              Yankland engineers wouldn’t get a job outside of Yankland as they are stuck in the past.

              Lovely.

                      decide whether you’re retired or not, from your flyover state

                        It’s fucking higher than yours.

                        You don’t even know if you’re a man or a woman.

                        Ergo, you’re a fucking idiot savant.

                            Mine is 25.4. Is that higher than 1 stone?

                            edit: One stone is equal to a fortnight, which adds up to one quid.
