    Innocent newbie: Sir, I need to establish a parameter that tells me the acceptable error rate...

    Arrogant PM#1: Why do you need to know that?
    Arrogant PM#2: Can you give me an example of why you need that information?
    Arrogant PM#3: Can you describe a situation where such data is useful for the customer?
    Jerk Boss#1: Have you finished working on the problem above? Are you done with your virtual model? Did you collect all the data? Why are you asking this now?

    Smart answer: [Don't listen to all these people, they're clueless!]
    Instead, try to figure out WHAT is the error rate, THEN look if it's acceptable. THEN decide how to reduce it if and only if it's part of the goal.

    This is a real example of how people appear to just bullshit their way around tough questions. Whenever they retaliate against the initiator with a barrage of unrelated and very uncontrolled set of questions. It means, (a) they're insecure, (b) they don't know, (c) they want to look good at your the initiator's expense. and (d) they're stalling for some time while they think it over in their heads on the hope they could find an answer to save them

    The thing is, in research. There's nothing wrong with saying: "We don't know" or "We need to find out" and sometimes "Theorize" for very tough answers. That's the nature of everything. This is how little children learn and grow. They Ask questions... They try to find out!

    The issue isn't who will get to the right answer first. The issue is really knowing and understanding that we sometimes -really- don't know! There's NOTHING wrong in admitting that! In fact, it's the right way to do it. Instead of attacking the person inquiring.

    Memories....

    I can totally relate, this used to happen at work all the time. Project Managers who said "I don't know, let's find out" were always the best to work with and produced the best results.
