A novel and effective solution to the problem of quantifying system quality is presented. Techniques for prediction of future performance quality are developed in detail. A long-standing need for a satisfactory tool for this purpose has generated a strong incentive to develop an ACCEPTABLE METHODOLOGY. The power of the mathematical and physical modeling developed in this study called SPAN, is due to the use of a comprehensive metric of performance, comprising both energy and bound information measures. SPANs ability to integrate these factors into a consistent performance descriptor is based on well-known laws of potential energy and probability theory. A calculus of system performance dynamics, compatible with the SPAN metric, is directly obtainable from Laplaces and Helmholtz equations for energy flow, by inserting the information content of the constraining pattern.
