The pitfalls of making credible estimates as an expert are that the estimate may be propagated as fact, and it may come back as a requirement to be met. However, the original estimator may become untraceable through multiple levels of transmission, and multiple estimates may contain self-cancelling errors. To avoid receiving such `facts', question your sources.
