Title
(EN) SELECTING A SOLUTION
Abstract
(EN)

A method of selecting a solution, comprises identifying a set of performance indicators that are correlated with a quality indicator. A target value is set for at least one of the performance indicators, based on a target in respect of the quality indicator. A plurality of solutions is selected, wherein a solution is associated with an effect on said at least one of the performance indicators for which a target value was set. At least one solution is selected of the plurality of solutions based on the target value of said at least one of the performance indicators and the effect of the selected at least one solution on said at least one of the performance indicators. A scenario is simulated with a particular value of at least one of the performance indicators, to obtain a predicted value of the quality indicator.
