And you learned that right quick, I guess? Well done. That's one dish I stay away from too... Yuck! :-x

But I think I may have derailed this topic... Any more abbreviations for Trolles list? Btw (oh, there I go again), I was rather expecting a question about one of the abbreviations I used in my previous post...

?? hua ??.... Please explain FUSP (For Us Slow People)

This use to be a PIA for me Öwhenever I start with a new company takes a good 3 months to learn the new terms and acronyms. Now the first thing I do when I go to a new company is make a list of TAís (terms and acronyms) and include this list as a handout whenever I do my new hire orientation so others donít have to go through what I did. I also incorporated a paragraph in the procedure template for this reason. I hate it when I see a procedure that has acronyms throughout and no definitions for them.

Here are a few of my QMS related ones:

DCR = Document Change Request
ICAR = Internal Corrective Action
BOM = Build of Material
TCS = Total Customer Satisfaction
RCCA = Root Cause / Corrective Action

The list can go on foreverÖit just depends on what company your working for at the time. As far as the Internet ones?... Just now learning from this forum.

Claes,

I guess we'll have to stick to the Queens English. Oooops. I mean American English (whatever that is)
American English, is that reinvented English with bits of words missing? What happened to the u in colour anyway?

Queenís English thatís another reinvention, itís nothing like English. Itís simply English spoken by southerners with a plum stuck up their a$$e. To hear true English you have to go north of the Watford Gap.

Watford Gap --- a mythical line somewhat similar to the Great Wall of China but a bit more subtle and on a less grand scale, drawn across the map of England by the Romans in the hope it would keep the southerners out, to some extent it still works today as southerners seem to believe there are dragons and warring Vikings north of the line. (Sorry Claes, Norse of the line.)

Yep... and as a matter of fact quite a few scottish words and expressions can be traced to the scandinavian languages. We'll have to blame the vikings for that. (You may have guessed by now that languages is one of my greatest interests in life )

Many thanks to you all for your help!

And Sue, your website links are sure to be very handy,

Claes, please note that in those gloomy days when UK business was down due to, to many Roman fat cats. They had to call in consultants from all over Scandinavia to get things in order. These consultants came up with many novel ideas; most important must have been the very concept of Anglaland (England i.e.). Even in them good old days consultants already knew that there where always more money to get while fixing what they didnít do right the first time around. As far as I know, ever since them Vikings launched this bis version, English has been a smashing worldwide success.

Cheers

My word, you're right... I do wonder what their consulting fees were in those days..?
