Repair Metrics

We have been focusing on bean counting at work lately, as the big push is to find metrics to show what the DBAs are accomplishing, and where we are spending our time. In that vein, here are some interesting numbers related to the whole repair:

Total Days3
Total Hours10-12 (approximately a half-day each day)
Trips to various stores before repair4
Trips to various stores during the repair5
Bolts and nuts needing to be removed26
vacuum tubes and hoses12
Nearly disastrous dropping things into the engine4 (including the same pliers, twice, working on the same clamp)
Coolant accidents2
Distinct tools needed~13 (not counting various sized sockets)
Part total$61 ($15 for the PCV valve, the rest in gaskets)
