True storey!!!! Just goes to show how much is in their head!!!

Oh no, its much more wide spread, one of our Control System Specialists left an entrie bank of photocells in place but inactive so that Front Line Mangers could move them so the depth of product on the conveyor would increase. The cell that actually controlled the bed depth was an anonymous one hidden away.
This went on for some years, he even kept them powered up and detecting so the LEDs on the end would blink convincingly....
