If these formulas come from Burleson Consulting, they are probably new
Silver Bullets and new generalizations.
Burleson always comes up with 'formulas', 'silver bullets' and usually they just don't work.
Apart from that: whether a larger SGA has any positive impact is largely determined by the application.
If the application randomly selects data, bumping up the SGA is not going to help, ever.
Most 'savvy professionals' (favorite catch phrase of Burleson) are aware of this, only Burleson continues to spread myth, fairytales and formulas.
