The principles of functional qualification

Functional logic errors remain a significant cause of project delays and re-spins. One of the main reasons is that two important aspects of verification environment quality—the ability to propagate the effect of a bug to an observable point and the ability to observe the faulty effect and thus detect the bug—cannot be analyzed or measured.
