I was suggested to use the term
bullet-proofed by a colleague. Someone else now pointed out that
bullet-proofed might not even exist, because we can't build the past tense of an adjective.
Part one of the question is: can
to bullet-proof be a verb which describes "making something bullet-proof"? And in consequence
bullet-proofed then means "having made something bullet-proof"?
So far, that's just for me, learning about it. I actually have decided to replace the word by something else.
The word is intended to be used like "a bullet-proofed solution", which is close to
tested. However, I would not use
foolproof as a term here, because it might sound offending in the business context it is used.
Can you think of the correct term my colleague might have had in mind when suggesting
bullet-proofed? Note that we're both non-native English speakers.
@skymninge hit the definition. The intended use is like "not subject to correction, alteration, or modification", so I am looking for a synonym of that.
