The Tolerable-Limit can be set by predicting the Level where funding to our project will be cut, or where no one will be interested in buying our Product or Service. If we cannot get better results than the Tolerable-Limit, the project is simply not worth the money nor the effort.
Scale: average time in minutes, to learn how to program contact names and telephone numbers into the memory of the phone.
Past 35 min.
Status [Today, cycle 16] 20 min.
Tolerable [within 14 months] 18 min.
Goal [within 1 year] 5 min.
Tolerable together with the Scale reads:
It will absolutely not be tolerated, if within 14 months, the average time in minutes, to learn how to program contact names and telephone numbers into the memory of the phone, is more than 18 min.
The 18 minutes point on the Quantification-Scale divides the Intolerable-Range and the Tolerable-Range.
The Intolerable-Range is a range along the Quantification-Scale, where the Stakeholders will NOT tolerate the
system. No one will buy the Product if one of the Product-Values falls within the Intolerable-Range.
The Tolerable-Range is a Range along the Quantification-Scale, where the Stakeholders will tolerate the
system, but they are not happy with this particular Product-Value. The system is not Successful when
within this Range. If a Goal-Level is contracted for but not reached, partial payment can be agreed upon
within the Tolerable-Range.
The Success-Range along the Quantification-Scale is a Range where the Stakeholders are happy with this
particular Product-Value. If a Goal-Level is contracted for, and reached, full payment would be expected.
