In all areas of life, there are a lot of issues we are not aware of. To measure these problems, we use the so-called fulfillment rate.

A fulfillment rate of 99.9% (which seems a lot) still means 22,000 wrong bank bookings per hour, and a total of 32,000 missed heart beats per year. The answer is automation and standardization! These approaches help solve problems we are often not aware of.
