Unlimited options with the facility to group similar ones. Notes for each options for attaching files and images.
Criteria are displayed as a tree.
Sophisticated yet practical displays for swing weighting.
Multiple displays for scoring to suit the criteria.
Results - Bar Chart
Bar chart of overall results.
Results - Costs vs. Benefits
Scatter chart of costs against benefits. Displaying real-world costs if available plus a third dimension (bubble size) to display if required.
Results - Strengths & Weaknesses
Identify which criteria are driving the result.
Sensitivity - Individual Weights
At what weight would the overall result change?
Sensitivity - Value Mapping
What changes if the value mapping is different to what you have used?
Sensitivity - Scores
What is the range is scores are not point estimates? Does that change the decision?
Sensitivity - Stakeholders Viewpoints
What changes if different stakeholders have different weighting?
Sensitivity - Correlation
Are any of the criteria positively or negatively correlated? i.e. double counted?
Platinum. Efficient Frontier
Displays all possible combinations of options/projects. The frontier in orange is the theoretical best combination of projects for a given cost. Blue dots illustrate portfolios of projects manually created to compare with the theoretical "best".
Platinum. Categories and Portfolios
Display showing how to separate projects by department and show which ones are in a portfolio.
Force in (or out) projects. For example "Must Dos" or "Can't Stop". This reduces the projects and money available to compete with the remainder of funds.
Display the scores. Use to determine spends per year for a portfolio as well as the overall cost-benefit. Used to meet cash flow / affordability requirements.
Define how projects relate to each others in terms of costs and benefits. Does carrying out two projects together add (or detract) from the overall benefit of them carried out individually? Can you do one project but not another one at the same time?
Look at the problem from different angles.
Identify the components of the system and their relationships. Define the functions being carried out and assess strengths, weaknesses and contradictions. Can also be used for Value Stream Mapping and Conflict Resolution Diagrams.
