Module: Solution Prioritization
Solution prioritization provides a method for assessing the potential benefits and costs of identified resilience solutions to enable ranking of the solutions for implementation. This module provides a semi-quantitative evaluation and prioritization process for the resilience planning team to compare and make decisions about solutions that were identified during the Solution Development module. It uses the risk assessment framework, developed in the Risk Assessment module, as well as the site’s resilience priorities, developed in the Site-Level Planning module, to identify solutions that best meet site resilience priorities.
A key input for prioritization is how much each solution reduces risk. Estimating costs of each potential solution, as well as identifying how well potential solutions meet resilience priorities, also helps to prioritize solutions. The prioritization approach described in this module can be used to recommend which solutions should be carried forward.
The Technical Resilience Navigator (TRN) Solution Prioritization module uses two types of resources to guide users through the solution prioritization process: a set of worksheets (online or downloadable Microsoft Word) and a solution prioritization tool (online or two downloadable Excel workbooks). For users working offline, refer to the TRN Resource: Solution Prioritization Process Flow Diagram to see the relationship and suggested flow for using both sets of resources to best effect. For those working offline, please note that references to tabs from the Risk Assessment Excel workbook are in orange, while references to tabs from the Solution Prioritization Excel workbook are in blue.
