The results are in, and sad to say I missed the mark entirely.
Which is not to say that my previous essay was not valid, however, my Boss has informed me that the reason why we do not "fine tune" a network is because it is the same as doing nothing at all, and of course "doing nothing" is not what we are paid for.
"Fine Tuning" is not measurable to the customer, it produces no results that can be immediately seen, and in some cases, too much fine tuning can break things over time. We *always* address our efforts on issues which have high impact, are of importance, and which have results that are visiable to the customer and non-technical management.
So, the ending result of my journey for today was:
Fine tuning does not add value to the business.
Fine Tuning = not addressing important issues = Doing Nothing = unemployment line.
Have an excellent weekend!
