Their aircraft won't stay in the air and their space capsule can't take off.

If it's Boeing you ain't going.

I think that the problem was that after a certain merger, the Boeing engineers quit controlling the company and the bean counters started making the final decisions. At least, that is from what I read.

Too much lobbying and not enough engineering. They've been eating the seed corn.

The stock price is not impacted. This is by failure that progress are made.

I've never worked in a company where the beancounters made the decision. They always gave the operations guys the info and THEY were the ones who made the decision. And I've worked in a Fortune 5 company.

I work for a large multinational. Most of the Bean Counters are engineers!

It's the ugly truth of business.

Perhaps its just the engineers that are bad. Not all engineers are good. Also attrition, the good engineers retired or left. New hires (i.e. recent grads, or outsourcing) and inexperiance most likely are the cause for the failures.

In other words, the bean counters who only look at the bottom line . . .

What these failures mean for the bottom line?

13 valves failed.

The thirteen failed valves all identified as nonbinary valves.
