"as good as possible" is incorrect. Optimization is when marginal cost equals marginal benefit. "As good as possible" typically means marginal cost exceed marginal benefit, indicating a misallocation of resources. An optimization of resources cannot occur if they are misallocated. It is self-defeating.
Is "optimisation" the correct American spelling? wr 220.127.116.11 16:49, 4 December 2007 (UTC)
