Sure, here’s an example of how you might track the life cycles of the various components of a jelly jar using a table. This table includes the manufacture date, expected lifespan, decay start date, decay end date, and current status for each component.

Component Manufacture Date Expected Lifespan (years) Decay Start Date Decay End Date Current Status
Glass Jar 1-Jan-23 10 1-Jan-33 31-Dec-33 In Use
Metal Cap 1-Jan-23 10 1-Jan-33 31-Dec-33 In Use
Rubber Ring 1-Jan-23 5 1-Jan-28 31-Dec-28 In Use
Vacuum Seal 1-Jan-23 5 1-Jan-28 31-Dec-28 In Use
Label 1-Jan-23 10 1-Jan-33 31-Dec-33 In Use
Glue 1-Jan-23 10 1-Jan-33 31-Dec-33 In Use
Dye 1-Jan-23 10 1-Jan-33 31-Dec-33 In Use
Jelly 1-Jan-23 2 1-Jan-25 31-Dec-25 In Use

This table provides a snapshot of the system at a particular point in time. You could update this table periodically to reflect changes in the system, such as the decay of a component or the replacement of a part.

This is a simple example, but you could expand this approach to include more detailed information about each component, such as the conditions that accelerate its decay, the impact of its failure on other components, and so on. You could also use this approach to model more complex systems with a larger number of components and interactions.

Sure, here’s a table that outlines the life cycle of each component of a jelly jar, from origin to reuse:

Component Origin Manufacture Use Recycle Reuse
Glass Jar Sand mined in Australia Melted and molded in China Filled with jelly in USA Collected for recycling in USA Remelted and reused in USA
Metal Cap Bauxite mined in Australia Refined and molded in Germany Used to seal jar in UK Collected for recycling in UK Remelted and reused in UK
Rubber Ring Rubber tapped in Brazil Processed and molded in India Used to seal jar in UK Collected for recycling in UK Processed and reused in UK
Vacuum Seal Air pumped out in UK Maintained during jar filling in UK Keeps jelly fresh in UK Broken when jar is opened in UK Cannot be reused
Label Paper produced in Canada Printed and dyed in USA Attached to jar in UK Collected for recycling in UK Pulped and reused in UK
Glue Chemicals synthesized in Germany Processed and applied in UK Holds label on jar in UK Collected for recycling in UK Chemically broken down and reused in UK
Dye Chemicals synthesized in Germany Applied to label in USA Makes label colorful in UK Collected for recycling in UK Chemically broken down and reused in UK
Jelly Fruit grown in Spain Cooked and jarred in UK Eaten in UK Biodegrades in UK Cannot be reused
