What is it?
Analysis is a technique for identifying the likely effects of a proposed
solution to a project/problem. A solution effect diagram is a visually
effective way of recording the possible effects as they are suggested.
When to use it
the effects of a particular solution
- Comparing alternative
What does it achieve?
A problem may have
one or more possible solutions and, to help select the best solution,
it is necessary to evaluate the implications of all of them. This can
be achieved by using a solution effect diagram to identify major and
solution effect diagrams can be used to:
- Assist both
individuals and groups to generate ideas
- serve as a recording device for ideas generated
- Reveal undetected relationships
- Define the solution
- Draw a fishbone
- Identify major
- Brainstorm for
- Incubate the
- Analyse and
