Headline: Order of magnitude better than future competitors.
Scale: Average time needed to learn to do Typical Tasks for Typical User. Perfect: 0 seconds.
Estimate [This Year, Our Old Product] 10 minutes. <- CTO
Trend [Best Competitors, During New Product Lifetime, Europe Market & USA Market] 5 minutes.
Tolerable [New Product, All Markets] 2 minutes.
Goal [New Product, Initial Release] 1 minute.
Goal [New Product, 1 Year After Initial Release] 30 seconds.
￼‘Trend’, ‘Perfect’ and ‘Estimate; are Benchmark specifications.
3. It is arguable that the Concepts Ideal, Perfect and Wish are also reference Benchmarks, rather than actually required states. The Wish is a Stakeholder need, but not a formal System Requirement. Perfect and Ideal are two classes of extreme states, not likely to be seriously affordable, feasible or prioritized into Constraints or targets.
If they are in any Case really ‘required’ we would need to state them as targets or Constraints (added Jan 23 08 tg)
