Value Breakdown Structure VBS
| Gideon Koch||Value Breakdown Structure is used to present the project system value, marketing perception or product marketing aspects.
Each Value package should be analyzed using SWOT method.
Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats SWOT
|1. Beny||We uses something like this for our SWOT analysis which is a structured planning method used to evaluate the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.
The upper packages are: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.
On a lower level we provide three major aspects to each of the upper layer: Market, Quality and Technology.
In the market we look for all kind of things happening globally including price.
The Quality issue is impotent to us so we look if there are some new topic that we need to take into consideration.
New technology is one of the things we look insight every time we do our SWOT.
We uses your chart to draw our SWOT (actually, Value Breakdown Structure VBS sounds better) from time to time which makes it easy to understand and discuss.
Another use: Alnayize our competitive edge
|2. Rene||We set each of our products functions in such a diagram and matching it toward our competitors capabilities to see where we need to put efforts to be first in our business.
Each functionality is analyzed in several aspects (lower levels) such as cost, customer satisfaction, quality and more.
As Beny said, once people see it in a chart they react to it differently. Now we have great discussions on the issues rather than blaming one each other....
