Excerpt from Graphic Production Control

A psychologist recently told me that I was a radical. A good friend has been kind enough to credit me with practical viewpoint. If both are correct in their estimates, then I suppose I must confess to being a "practical radical," and that I am radical in the practice of my profession. I am not so sure of the former, but I will plead guilty as to the latter, for I have always attempted to avoid clinging to the generally accepted, just for the sake of clinging, if a better way could be developed. Most people cling to things because they are afraid to let go, fearful of something with which they are unfamiliar.

Early in my business career, I observed, here, there and elsewhere, arrays of forms, figures and statistics - some simple, others fearfully and wonderfully thrown together; some coordinated, others a hodge-podge. As I studied, I observed further that the intelligent use of forms, figures and statistics was in direct proportion to the perception of the person using them. It was only a step to reason out that if perception meant "quick seeing," then the thing to do was to picture in advance the results of this perceptiveness, in so far as this was possible, and to apply it to production work in industry, thereby reducing executive fatigue, facilitating quicker and better decisions and speeding up production, all factors in increasing industrial efficiency.

In 1906 or 1907, I do not remember which, I presented a few charts in a series of articles in the pages of The Engineering Magazine. In 1908 and 1909, I made use of charts in production work in two plants in Erie and Warren, Pa.
