They're working on making a faster horse.

I agree with Gordon.

Whoever came up with such a negative slogan - "Push to Stop" - should be assigned to writing spam email subject lines.

And extrapolating a two minute - 2 minute! - savings per makeready to $83,200 annual savings is such a false economy. No company is going to cut back an operator's work day because of 16 scattered two minute savings per shift.
