IT has often been remarked in this journal that, of all the branches of the engineering profession, production engineers are the least articulate. The recent conference at Cranfield accepted this as a regrettable fact and proceeded to discuss the reasons for it, and how to increase the interchange of information between production engineers. In a majority among those attending the conference were members of A.S.L.I.B., but there were a number of production engineers, although these were naturally drawn from the firms most fully aware of the value of information services, and so the conference was to some extent preaching to the converted.
