[Note: PMFL stands for “Program Monitoring and Fault Location.” It’s the group I was assigned to when I was working on CCS-MK2.]

That reminds me of SWAG, our acronym at Thomson for estimates. Stupid Wild Ass Guess, I think...

It's actually Performance Monitoring and Fault Localization, most widely attributed to the Draper corporation's contribution to the Seawolf submarine, but I worked on PMFL applications for GE Aerospace prior to Seawolf. Also, the "S" in SWAG stands for Scientific.

Of course! "Location" is too short a word. I forgot about how things work in that world.
