Wear control was chosen as an example of a technology to increase product durability. Experts from the field of wear along with representatives from industry discussed the status of wear control technology and its application in the design and maintenance of a range of products railroad equipment, automobiles, aircraft propulsion, Naval aircraft structures, metal cutting machinery and tools, and heavy construction equipment. The questions specifically explored were whether product life could be extended by improved wear control and what would be the cost and other consequences of such extension. These questions were explored from various viewpoints 1 the status of technology to support increases in durability, 2 economic considerations, 3 current policies and programs, and 4 the methodology and information available.
