ASSESS SOLUTION LIMITATIONS
The main purpose of assess solution limitation is to determine the factors internal to the solution that restricts the credibility of the solution.
It identifies the root causes that affects the solution and solution components.
TOOLS AND TECHNIQUES USED
- CHANGE STRATEGY:
Change strategy is used to deliver the potential solution to the client.
- RISK ANALYSIS RESULTS
The results that are obtained from risk analysis is observed and evaluated for the solution implementation.
- SOLUTION SCOPE
The solution boundaries that are created to deliver a potential solution.
- ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA:
It is used to indicate whether the solution meets the acceptance criteria held by the client, if not it is evaluated to the criteria and delivered.
This technique is used to interact with client and get their solutions.
- RISK ANALYSIS:
This technique is used to identify the limitations that affects the solution and its components and minimised.
- ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS:
Root cause analysis helps in getting out the exact reason of the problem, it is used to avoid the major limitations of the solutions.
This can be useful to obtain the specific solution for the problem from the stakeholders.
- BUSINESS RULES ANALYSIS:
This technique is used to illustrate the current business rules and changes required to achieve the potential value of the change.
- MARKET ANALYSIS:
It is used to access whether other organization also facing the same solution challenges and if required can get a input from them, how are they dealing with.
- DATA MINING:
It is used to list out the factors that are constraining the performance of the solution.
Record and maintain stakeholder’s issues related to why solution not meeting the value.
- LESSONS LEARNED:
The lessons learned from the previous projects can be used, if there were relevant problems, it would be useful to rectify the limitations.
Identify internal solution component dependencies:
Solutions often have internal dependencies that limit the performance of the entire solution. Assessment of the overall performance of the solution can limit the defect in the solution and its components.
Business analysts identify the solution components which have dependencies and their components that limit the solution’s performance.
Investigate solution problems:
When the solution consistently produces ineffective outputs, problem analysis is performed in order to identify the source of the problem.
Business analysts identify problems in the solution or solution component by examining the outputs whether they satisfy the acceptable level of quality where the potential value is delivered.
Problems stated may indicate the inability of the solution to meet the goal or criteria of the client, these problems are rectified by the techniques and evaluated.
Business analysts review the identified problems in order to assess the ability of the solution to deliver its potential value.
Business analysts identify which problems must be resolved, which can be mitigated through other activities or approaches, and which can be accepted.
In addition to the identified problems, business analysts assess risks to the solution and potential limitations of the solutions.
- Check the feasibility of the solution and anticipate the system behaviour after solution implementation.
- Consult with experts and study the past experiences.
- Compare the system design with proposed solutions.
