“Future stats” is, of course, a contradiction in terms, since statistics by definition measure production already done:
“A statistic is a number or amount compared to an earlier number or amount of the same thing. Statistics refer to the quantity of work done or the value of it in money.
HCO P/L 16 December 1965, Issue II
As far as how production relates to the future:
“When you first inspect an area for products, you just look … Don’t listen to how they are going to get 150 products; just look and walk around with a clipboard.
HCOB 23 August 1979R
At nearly every event of recent times, COB has touted what can only be called “future stats.”
Usually stated in reference to some new Ideal Org, his wordings have included “potential for …”, “can fit up to …”, “will be able to handle …”, and “with a capacity exceeding …”.
Example: “The new test center for Tampa Org can handle 155 raw public at any given time.”
Observation from repeat visits at random times showed the number of new public actually there to average between zero and two.
