Our engineers have been defining these two terms as follows:
Configurable = The user can set the parameters once.
Reconfigurable = The user can set the parameters numerous times.

If configure = change, then reconfigure means re-change?
If configure = cycle, then reconfigure means recycle?

Perhaps I'm being picky, but it's bothering me. How do other TCs use these
terms?
