Statistical stuff doesn't play out well in one-off situations.  If you 
have a large number of boxes you'll know about the right amount of spare 
parts and on-hand spares you need.  But individual units are about like 
light bulbs in breaking at random and if the only one you have breaks 
today it won't matter that their average life is in years.
