This is actually a problem in many industries:
- how do you test a *hammer*? a screwdriver? a tape rule?
- how do you quantify the "shell" of an M&M candy?
- how do you check the race of a ball bearing made out of *glass*?
- just how "fizzy" should alka-seltzer tablets be?
Some of the "solutions" can be quite amusing...
