RE: If everything is working fine, why do PTF's?



fixed

If everything is working on the airplane he's going to fly in next week then why bother with doing any preventive maintenance on it. I just hate stupid people/executives who try to think of excuses to not do these types of things. It's a machine, it's going to break, it needs care and feeding. It ain't rocket science.

Subject: If everything is working fine, why do PTF's?

This is a question I got from a client yesterday. I seem to recall somebody posting a link here some years ago to justify staying reasonably current.

He wants more than just the standard arguments about IBM insisting that one be at a certain level, et cetera, et cetera. It went right over his head when I asked him if he changes the oil in his car on a regular basis. He lives in the city and doesn't own a car.

Please chime in.
