SRE is based on two powerful ideas:
-- Quantitatively characterize the expected use of your product and then focus your resources on the most used and/or most critical functions. This increases development efficiency and hence the effective resource pool available to add customer value to your product.
-- Further increase customer value by setting quantitative reliability objectives that precisely balance customer needs for reliability, timely delivery, and cost; engineer project strategies to meet them; and track reliability in test as a release criterion.
Elected IEEE Fellow in 1986 for many seminal contributions, he was recognized in 1992 as the leading contributor to testing technology. The IEEE Reliability Society named him Engineer of the Year in 2004. His leadership has been noted by every edition of Who's Who in America since 1990 and by American Men and Women of Science. Musa, widely recognized as the leader in SRE practice, initiated and led the effort that convinced AT&T to make SRE a "Best Current Practice."
