[...] PS: an interesting side note, I mentioned this to a machining company who insisted that 10% incoming casting defects was acceptable. They then talked with their suppliers and quickly reduced their incoming defects to less than 2%.
You trouble maker!!!

I think the question of Feasibility to achieve something interms of Cost, Quality, technology, etc etc is in-built, when we say something is "achievable". If not, everything is achievable. Correct me, if I am wrong.
Or in other words, 0 ppm for Customer rejection for Casting parts is not achievable or not realistic.
If you include "realistic" in your definition of "achievable," you're right, and that's fine. It doesn't matter, though, because SMART is just intended to help people remember how to define objectives, and if there are endless discussions about the relative merits of "achievable" and "realistic," the point has been missed.

Re: Achievable vs. Realistic - Differences and Definitions

Good discussion on the language subtleties On a lesser day I would have said the terms are pretty much the same because of the way I mentally defined realistic. But my Websters Thesaurus lists synonyms rational, pragmatic and sensible.
