An extensive report is being prepared on a fresh approach - We just hired 3 punk kids out of school.
Major technological breakthrough - It works OK and looks very high tech.
Customer satisfaction is believed assured - We are so far behind schedule that the customer will take anything.
Preliminary operational tests were inconclusive - The darn thing blew up when we threw the switch.
Test results were extremely satisfying - Unbelievable - it actually worked.
The entire concept has been abandoned - The only guy who understood the thing quit.
Please note and initial - Lets spread the responsibility for this.
All new - Parts are not interchangeable with any previous design.
Rugged - Don't plan to lift this without some major kit.
Robust - Like Rugged but more so.
Years of development - One finally worked.
Energy saving - Achieved when the power switch is off.
No Maintenance - Impossible to fix.
Low Maintainance - Nearly impossible to fix.
We are following the standard - That's the way we have always done it.
