Laying railroad tracks.

Today I came across an interesting video on how train tracks are laid. (If the link disappears, search for "Werktrein in Overpelt".) Fascinating, yes?

It's striking that a series of steps involving these enormous machines works so well, while a software flow for a process like IC (Integrated Circuit) design is so troublesome. You could blame smaller amounts of money spent, but I think the problem has more to do with the lack of interest in software quality at all levels.
