We haven't used this format in awhile but I like it for quickly sparking an intelligent discussion.

I'll be interested to hear what sort of quality metrics GSA or others come up with.

Quality Vocabulary

Mike raises a good point for needing a vocabulary to discuss IP Quality.  The GSA IP team, chaired by Warren, has investigated several aspects of IP quality, including TSMC9000, and STMicro's Make versus Buy process.  We've just chartered a project for Make versus Buy Best Practices, of which the IP quality is a component, and welcome others to join the effort.  Interested parties can contact hbeasley@gsaglobal.org

With all the possible issues with tool flows, verification, software drivers, etc there is always going to be a 'misunderstanding' with some aspect of the design.

A service business seems more like a Partnership to me than a Property transaction...
