When we analyse some quality of service (QoS) properties, such as run time, accuracy and reliability, errors need to be taken into account. Although interval arithmetic can deal with worst-case analysis; for average-case analysis, we need some other methods. In this paper we will introduce the importance and methodology of developing a bell-curve calculus. We will explain the status of our current research and perform analysis on problems we have encountered.
