Article Abstract

One of the important activities during the development stage of a product is to assess expected performance and ensure that the estimated performance meets or exceeds its predetermined goals before it is released in the market. Also, once the product is in use in the market, it becomes imperative to monitor actual performance and compare it against the estimates. This gives us an evaluation of the accuracy of the estimates or prediction. In this paper, an effort is made to describe these activities as applied to a pacemaker model.
