Creating an Option

Modified on Sun, 12 Nov 2023 at 12:03 PM

ALPHA RELEASE: FEATURE INCOMPLETE - SELECTIVE TESTING



A. Introduction


An Option represents a possible course of action being considered that you want to understand the benefits, and negatives of. An Assessment enables you to compare an alternative course of action against the 'base case' or the 'no-change/proceed as originally planned' option.


Two Options are created with each Assessment:

  1. 'Basecase'. This typically represents the Option that has already been approved or is the one you want to compare other alternative options against. 
  2. 'Alternative 1'. This represents an alternative Option for comparison. 


Actions available from the Options screen are:

  • Create a new Option: select the '+New Option' button.
  • Edit an Option: right-click on an Option and select 'Edit'.
  • Compare an alternative option with the Baseline option: right-click and select 'Compare'.



For new Options, enter the following information.




New Option


From the Options screen, select +New Option.



  • Title: Give your Option a unique name.

  • DescriptionTo help others understand the Option.



Select 'Save'.


A warning will be shown if any of the mandatory* fields have not been completed.


The Option will now be listed on the Options screen.

This can be edited by right-clicking on an Option and selecting 'Edit'.



Comparisons


One Comparison will is automatically available: 


  1. 'Basecase'. This typically represents the Option that has already been approved or is the one you want to compare other alternative options against. 
  2. 'Alternative'. This represents an alternative Option for comparison. 


You can edit these Options and create new ones by right-clicking on an Assessment and selecting 'Options'.



* Settings can be changed to make certain fields mandatory for an Assessment. When creating a new Assessment, the mandatory fields are shown.

 

** These may be given alternative names, depending on your use of Wovex. For example, if you have a separate business case for each phase of a large programme you may want to have Business Case Phase, instead of Business Case. Also, Scheme Design State, instead of Area, if each Phase of a large programme has many Designs that options can be created for.

Managers and Administrators can edit these by selecting the 'cog' on the top-right of the Option Edit screen. Then, select 'Translations'.
