6 reasons why things break
I read this in my late teens in one of Carroll Smith's "___ to Win" books. It's basic info but I thought it was very profound. Helps to break down a problem and makes the universe a little less chaotic.
4)used beyond designed life span
5)used beyond designed stress levels (thermodynamic, mechanical, vibration, corrosive, radiation)
When I first read it, I thought I only had control over #4 and #6. There are parts on my car today where I control all but #2 and I still control where I get my materials from.
BTW, it's been a long time since I read that book. If I listed one incorrectly, please tell me.
