What is a Feasibility Study? Meaning.
A Feasibility Study or feasibility analysis is a preliminary evaluation of an idea to determine if its worth pursuing. More precise it's a preliminary analysis of a proposed business idea, plan, project or strategy to provide an overview of the primary related issues and to determine whether it is viable strategically, financially and operationally. It may or may not also include an analysis of potential scenarios and a recommendation on the best solution to use.
It provides a lot of information necessary for a business
plan. Because putting together a business plan is a significant investment
of time and money, it makes sense to ensure first that there are no major
roadblocks facing the business idea before that investment is made. Identifying
roadblocks is the primary purpose of a feasibility study.
A FS is often preceeded by a concept statement: A 1-page description of the business/idea.
Typical Chapters of a Feasibility Study. Areas.
Feasibility studies typically look into following areas:
They should not go in too much depth, but should contain a basic analysis only.
In general, if the idea is deemed feasable in all areas, the FS should be followed by a full business plan.
If the idea is deemed not feasable in at least one area, it should be either improved first or else dropped.
