Akin's Laws

Akin's Laws of Spacecraft Design

For anyone who has ever developed a rocket or spacecraft (and I mean bending metal, not just some fancy simulation on a computer), Akin's Laws hold a lot of truth. If your manager fails to appreciate these, then quite frankly, he would be a bad manager. Any decent manager would appreciate the truths within Akin's Laws. Note too, Akin's Laws hold up well for other branches of engineering too - there is certainly a lot in them that Software Engineers will recognise.
