Summary Comments In this article I have covered basic aspects of peening coverage while addressing and dispelling the erroneous linkage of component coverage with exposure time for Almen strips in saturation curve development and intensity determination. I also addressed the subject of how coverage develops and the matter of coverage curves and their fundamental nonlinearity. Coverage is far too important a consideration to ignore in peening practice as it has significant ramifications in both component quality and in process economics. This is why I have called it the real deal. I leave you with one parting shot. . . Peen Lean!
