Chapter 6. Understanding the Toolset

This chapter provides a high-level view of the features and functionality of ProVision®. This is the shortest chapter in the book because the purpose is to provide information that can be used to introduce the tool to modelers and explain what it can be used for.

This chapter covers the following two areas:

  • A high-level view of ProVision® features and functionality

  • Understanding the limitations of the tool

As this is not a technical book, this chapter is also designed to explain to the people developing the strategy what the tool is capable of, so that they have realistic expectations of what is possible and what is not.


If you wish to understand the technical capabilities and functionality in detail, then please read ProVision® 6.2 Made Easy and ProVision® 6.2 User Guide. The former is a comprehensive technical guide to all of the features, while the latter shows you how to use the toolset to achieve common tasks.
