"In 1065 while employed by West Bend Aluminium Company, in West Bend Wisconsin, Albert Raymond and Assoc, were hired by the comany to setup an indirect labor cost control system. Harold Bramer was assigned to perform the project, I was assigned as his assistent, where we studied most indirect labour and installed the system whereby a couple of indirect labor foremen were assigned to schedule, indirect labor work, assign personnel and estimate the time required from a set of standard data supplied by Albert Ramond and Assoc, while performing the time keeping function, of assigned jobs to determine indirect labor efficiency in addition, we time studied and developed standard data specific to the worlds foremost Pot and Pan company. In the 60's before free trade and the exportation of americas manufacturing infrastructure, to slave countries, then returned to america without having to pay the accrued taxation american industry is required to pay. The free trade or slave goods super stores have shuttered americas small family business sector which combined with the engineering design, manufacturing companies provided our nation with more jobs than people. I foresee a restoration of import taxation thereby providing economic justification of americas manufacturing infrastructure and small business sector. What happened to Albert Raymond and Associates, including their set of standard data which could be updated to current indirect labor practices,and information systems, used to manage virtually any indirect labor activity of large companies throughout the world.
