MODELING SYSTEM VARIATION

Ken Krechmer

Abstract

This paper proposes that the mathematical relationship between an entropy distribution and its limit offers some new insight into system performance. This relationship can be used to quantify variation among the entities of a system, caused by tolerance, options, specification or implementation errors, independent of noise, impact communications system performance. Means to address these variations are offered.
