11 Types of Design Feasibility

 , June 15, 2017
Design feasibility is a validation process that looks at how well a design delivers to requirements, objectives and goals. This can be a lightweight evaluation process or an indepth study that tests parts of the design with techniques such as prototyping. The following are common types of design feasibility.

Technical

Confirming that the design is technically possible given constraints such as existing architecture, infrastructure, systems, applications and tools.

Procurement

Confirming that components of the design can be purchased and performing checks related to quality, functionality and prices.

Financial

Checking that a design matches your financial constraints or goals. For example, calculating the cost of an architectural proposal for a building and validating it with reference class forecasting.

Compliance

Confirming that a design conforms to laws and regulations. For example, confirming that architecture is accessible.

Standards & Principles

Validating a design against applicable design principles, business principles or standards. For example, validating that a product is designed to the edges.

Organizational

Ensuring that a design matches your organizational culture. For example, consulting teams to see if an office interior design matches their working style.

Usability

Confirming that user interfaces are productive and pleasing to use.

Risk

Identifying risks associated with a design such as latent human error.

Sustainability

Evaluating the environmental and social impact of the design. For example, comparing the resource efficiency of designs for a facility.

Experience

Thinking about a design as an end-to-end experience and how customers might feel about it. This may include feedback from a lead user or customers.

Quality

Confirming that the design meets non-functional requirements in areas such as availability, reliability and durability.
