Detailing

Fundamental-Constraints are Constraints that are handed down to us from higher Authority. They are fundamental if we choose not to question them, but to heed them without question or alteration.

Type

Examples

For example: a Corporate Product-Value-Constraint (like minimum 99.9% availability) which is ignored because the current customer contract has a Limit of 99.98% availability.

• anything which is specified as a Constraint by one Stakeholder, but is, or might be, explicitly overridden by another higher Priority Constraint or Requirement.

For example: a Constraint on use of methods or Processes which could be overturned by national law or international considerations. Maybe only if you ventured into these other market areas.


Notes

Note 1.: Fundamental-Constraints are of various, and potentially conflicting, Authority. The conflicting Authorities can be ignorant of one another. There can be various degrees of power behind the various Authorities.

Note 2. What are “non-fundamental” Constraints?
• anything which is specified but ignored with reference to higher priorities.
