Larry Berstein, Industry Research Professor, Stevens Institute of
Technology, writes: "The performance of new systems capabilities for
government agencies and industry are often examined using
simulators. The simulators provide insight into how the new
capabilities will perform. The simulators shed little light on
reliability, complexity and other software engineering aspects of the
proposed changes. The correlation between the complexities of the
proposed capabilities with that of an earlier system can be used to
bound the trustworthiness, possible schedule and potential costs for
implementing the new capability. I call this the Lambda
Protocol. It combines software reliability with software sizing
theory. With performance, reliability, schedule and cost-estimates
in hand, system and software engineers can make essential engineering
tradeoffs as they set a course of action."
