Fundamentals: Make Mistakes

“An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.” — Niels Bohr

That about cover it.  We’re not experts yet but we’re well on the way to making every mistake possible.

This is one of the Fundamentals of the CollaborativeFail Fast.  This is also one of the mantras I’m known to mumble at Seven Cycles.  Interestingly, in the Colab, we have to fail fast if we’re going to complete this project.

We’re struggling with getting the fatigue testing methodology standardized.  We’re still testing the testing procedure, yipes.  Since there is no industry standard, we’re setting our own and although we often guesstimate and calculate these types of process correctly on the first try, we didn’t in this case.

I think we’ve just about got it nailed but close is not close enough.  More on that later.
