Everyone does this

I think a lot of companies do this. If during debug of a system you say replace 3 parts in order to get the customer up again, what happens to the three rejected parts ? - they're tested and if they pass, they are put back into stock as refurb stock. As another chap comments - these are often better quality than new as infant t mortality failures have been removed. So, I think it's more "- how good it the process used to separate the good from the iffy on the three parts .....
