Information on Trade-Off Study
In requirements engineering, a trade-off study is a
constrained objective evaluation of alternatives at a point in the
design process where a decision needs to be made, or
can be made, between alternative approaches. The trade-off study (also called trade study) is a very useful tool
to document the design process and to ensure that the
design scope remains bounded. A trade-off study is
also sometimes called a trade-off analysis.
