Prius software Bug shows a shift at Toyota

See http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/13/business/international/toyota-issues-another-recall-for-hybrids-this-time-over-software-glitch.html?_r=0

Toyota seems ready for a change in PR and engineering. Great.

I have also heard Toyota hired or “added” 1300 (or more) quality engineers to help improve. Good move (maybe). They recognize an issues exists and are trying to change.

So let’s throw bodies at it. However, do those people know quality, testing, verification, validation, engineering, or standards? I don’t know. Do they know software, systems, and bugs?

I spent years learning about bugs and testing. I wrote a book and many articles. BUT I am still learning about mobile and embedded bugs.

I hope some of the 1000s of new engineers take some time to learn, build skills, and think.
