Great story. I was going to comment on the obvious high labor content making it impossible for that system to work outside of India, then I read in the article itself how the system is also taking root in some immigrant areas of the U.S. and western Europe. Maybe UPS should be looking over their shoulder!

As a Senior Partner (in charge of Quality Mgmt. and Excellence)of an Athens- Greece based Civil Engineering Design & Consulting company(very specialised and "high level" services with about 25 high qualified Engineers and CAD draftpersons),I'introduced this procedure of "assesment & review" of consecutive drafts : each of the 3 levels of responsibility has its OWN COLOR of pencil. No piles of sheets with remarks, no ERP.

good post
