One of the key objectives of this project is to perform an alternatives analysis that will evaluate the identified alternatives and help inform the decision makers with the best solution for addressing the gap. This analysis has been performed by the team and includes great deal of subject matter expertise opinion. In this case, the subject matter expertise is vital as both technologies were tested using very different environments. As a result, TSS does not have data available for current day operations and there is not Human in the Loop (HITL) data on RPI that incorporates RNP approaches. Therefore, a great deal of the assessment must be qualitative.
The steps of this analysis follow those of the qualitative value model development followed by a quantitative analysis.
The picture on the right shows the methodology approach used for the alternative analysis.
