Improve Your Trade Studies and Capabilities Planning
Trade studies involve a series of complex, interlocking decisions about design concepts, components and processes that will deliver the most value. Capabilities planning requires decisions about how to blend plans, people, equipment and activities to reach strategic goals.
Trade studies and capabilities planning present similar challenges. Decisions involve multiple experts selecting among extremely complex options. Teams must identify and prioritize alternatives, reach consensus and make decisions about which alternatives are most likely to deliver goals. Stakeholder buy-in and the ability to justify the decision and document the process are essential.
Logical, Mathematically Valid Technology Selection.
Decision Lens provides a rational framework for the decision making process. Our technology selection methodology is logical and mathematically valid, yet it is easy to learn and practical to use. By combining expert judgment with hard data, you can deconstruct the problem and focus your research efforts. You can uncover the underlying drivers involved in the decision, including:
- Support of business/mission objectives and compatibility with future plans and objectives.
- Requirements analysis and prioritization.
- Risk of integration with existing systems/business processes.
- Platform/physical characteristics and system interoperability.
- Technological maturity.
Decision Lens guides you through the evaluation of the alternative technologies, resulting in clear, quantified differences between the alternatives. Sensitivity analysis enables you to test the "what-ifs." And our audit trail capability enables you to capture the knowledge and expertise of the SMEs, the organizational knowledge that can increase the performance of future working groups.
You are always in control of the process and the outcome: you and your team define and prioritize criteria, evaluate the alternatives, and make the decisions. Make sure your trade studies are effectively aligned with the strategic goals of your organization.
