The tool also had security features so that two people were required to change sensitive information.
 
Business Model – Action Challenge, Mackay, Australia

Resource Sharing Model, Singapore
As part of a study to determine the viability of combining several shipyards from separate sites into one, a model was constructed to determine the number of resources that would be required to share amongst the users. The model calculated the utilisation of each resource, the average waiting time, and the average queue length for each resource. Through sensitivity analysis, it was possible to determine the optimal number of resources to ensure that each user’s needs were met in addition to ascertaining sufficient latent capacity to cater for additional users. This operational model was linked to the financial model to determine the viability of the venture.
 
Ferry Study, United Arab Emirates
