There is a Chinese saying or phrase, 差不多， which means pretty much the same. Almost, nearly, more or less. I hear this phrase all the time. Here is an example.
Making widgets. A customer wanted a widget a specific thickness. The thickness of the widget is supposed to be 1.2mm. We first sample the widget. Build one make sure it’s good then send to customer. Today we go to look at the sampled widget and find out that the thickness is 2mm. .8mm too thick. This is a real problem. It’s almost 100% too big. The department that makes the innards of the widget has the drawings, the people that design it have the drawings. So my question is this. If we are making a widget and the thickness has to be 1.2mm and I have a part that is 2mm, what makes me think that 2mm is ok when the drawing says 1.2mm. Well, it’s almost, nearly, more or less the same. It’s why I hear that phrase all the time. Because to a Chinese person pretty close is good enough.
