Definition Benefit

The degree to which effects are judged desirable. The change in the baseline value of each decision objective as a result of implementing a decision option. For comparison of benefits across decision objectives, benefits for individual decision objectives will have to be normalized, using a scaling function. Benefits may be unrelated to aе consistent with external preferences. For any given decision objective, benefits may increase (desirable), decrease (undesirable), or remain the same following implementation of a decision option.
