Decision Analysis Builder

Formal decision analysis takes a structured approach to addressing problems or opportunity decision. In this tool, we took an approach inspired by section 10.16 of the Business Analysis Body Of Knowledge. This consists of a logical breakdown components such as: 

  • problem statement(s)
  • definition of alternatives
  • evaluation of defined alternatives
  • chosen alternative(s)
  • alternative(s) implementation

Here you can see a very basic Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) for Decision Analysis Builder.
