Taking the PtFS?

Yes PtFS is yet another acronym but there’s a universal law that says we have to have one and for some reason we also have to call it a ‘process’.  Not sure when either of those got grandfathered into the vernacular but far be it from us to fight convention so let’s blame some historical academic who’s no longer around to argue the toss.

The name came from an aerospace specification a few years ago which stipulated that a part be produced to a functional specification which for varying highly technical reasons (lost in the mists of time / concentration) was impossible with current technologies.  Hence, PtFS stands for Production to Functional Specification – grammatically perhaps there should be an ‘a’ but we’re a reasonably lazy bunch and want to save vowels / electrons / the plant so hit the delete key.
