Help & Instructions
Designers Assess the Impact of each Alternative in achieving each Objective.
1. For each Alternative, assign the Attribute value for each Goal. Attributes are expressed in the unit defined for the Goal.
2. Choose the least preferred (or worst performing) Attribute value for each Goal, by selecting the thumbs down icon.
3. Calculate the Advantages of other Alternatives and most preferred Advantage for each Goal by clicking the Automate button .
4. Assign Impacts.
The Automate button sets an initial Impact value in relation to each Advantage, giving the alternative with greatest advantage the maximum possible Impact score, and linearly scaling the others.
Alternately, you may manually set Impact values via the slider or by entering a value in the apropriate cell. Assign the maximum Impact score to the Paramount Advantage.
Assign Impact values to remaining alternatives based on their Advantages and how they relate to the Paramount Advantage.
Under "View Impacts" all team members can explore the net result of the Impact Assessment.
"View Value" computes the total Value for each alternative by multiplying each Stakeholder's Weight for each Goal, the Weight of each Stakeholder, and the average Impact.
"View Value by Goal" breaks this Value assessment down so users can see the reasons different Alternatives are preferred. Each colored bar represents the amount of Value coming from satisfaction of an individual goal. Clicking on a bar will reveal which stakeholders are benefiting from this Value and how much.
