Who knows, maybe it’s a mistake and used replacement cards have been exchanged for new….?

But, add that the cards into these two anomalous pallets have been billed to the Food and Beverage Company for a unitary amount of dollars nearly three times the new cards always acquired. 

What do you imagine could be the most reasonable Root Cause for these discoveries ?  

 Gold-made cards. Imagine two huge wood crates arrived to your store today, filled with the spare parts you ordered. Electronic cards urgently needed in your Machinery.  Now add that it is soon discovered that “nothing functions”.  Checking one-by-one all cards it is discovered that 95 % of the items are defective, used cards, cleaned and resealed to look-like a new…..
