You Really Want Evolution?

JAYNE was relating a conversation he had with another engineer discussing some improvements to be made on a project.  This is incomplete and paraphrased:

OTHER: So we want to improve this through an evolutionary process.

JAYNE:  You want to make lots of small random changes until one of the changes makes it better?

It reminds me of Inigo Montoya’s line, “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

For improving things evolution certainly is not all it is cracked up to be.
