Roller Coast Ride, Anyone?

Posted by Dave Cutler (Creator)

Hi,

Just a brief update. Ansonia (the manufacturer) is fully focused on getting into full production. While things are progressing slower than anticipated, much of it has to do with a commitment to ensuring that all components are precision-made and will function exactly as designed. Once the first few parts off of the line are approved, the Ansonia team then goes into full production mode of that particular piece. It's sort of like a roller coaster ride: it moves slowly up towards the peak, and then– BOOM! Things move very quickly. It's just that the "moving up" part of the ride is taking longer than anyone anticipated.

That said, most parts are indeed ready, and those that are not should be ready shortly. I can jump up and down and shout to try and make things move faster (believe me, I have) but the truth is that the process determines its own pace as we move along.Two steps forward, three steps back. Three steps forward, one step back. And so on.

Turns out that the roller coaster ride is a good analogy for the entire process of readying something entirely new for production: Anxiety, exhilaration, lulls, peaks and valleys. Yet afterwards, you always want to do it again.

Please know that we are truly moving forward towards full production. I thank you sincerely for sharing the ride with me, and for your continued support and incredible patience.
