I would bet that deep down you know the right answer on this one. I was happy to read the responses to see everyone on the same page.
Our company has a simple repair philosophy in that we find the cause of breakdown, determine what it will take to repair it and then look at the design and determine if we can improve it to last longer or make it easier to repair next time. It gets in the way of cheap and fast fixes but our uptime is so far better than before we can't go back. And we also have banned duct-tape being used for any repair other than a short term emergency fix.
