    • Capabilitiesdriverequirements,regardless ofwhat thesystemsengineeringtextbooks say.
    • Not having all the information you need is never a satisfactory excuse for not starting the analysis.
    • When in doubt, estimate.In an emergency, guess.But be sure to go back andclean up the mess when thereal numbers come along
    • The fact that an analysis appears in print has no relationship to the likelihood of its being correct.
    • A bad design with a goodpresentation is doomedeventually. A good design with a bad presentation is doomed immediately.
    • "Better" isthe enemyof "good".
    • Dont do nuthin dumb.
