Detailing

Three Parameters are used to specify Resource-Targets {Budget, Stretch and Wish}. A Budget-Level is the primary Resource-Target Type. A Stretch Level represents a Resource-Target that is not committed, but is a Level of challenge and motivation. The Wish Level represents a Resource Level that would have value to some Stakeholder, but again is not committed.

Resource-Targets represent the reasonable, perhaps profitable, Levels of Cost, we must expect to pay to reach our performance and Function-Targets within any Constraints.

Resource-Targets differ from Resource-Constraints, which are the Levels that signal problems, danger, or lack of profitability. We do not plan and design to merely stay within Resource-Constraints, but to avoid going anywhere near them at all!
