Thank you for the explanation!

That is pretty interesting, and a whole lot different from building consumer software. I spend a lot of my time thinking about reliability of systems, but usually at a higher level -- I assume that systems will fail, so I (try to) design architectures around those failures. What if I lose X or Y, what happens?

It sounds like you have to go a lot lower level and verify everything. (An endless task?) I suppose some of it gets rolled up -- i.e., you don't have to worry about, say, motor burnout specifically, but more just "there is a 0.01% cumulative chance of failure for every 1 hour of usage" and that includes physical wear and tear, unexpected failures, etc?
