Financial Viability Assessment | Guidelines

Top management leadership establishes guidelines for financial viability assessment that include 3 key financial metrics and real-world financial factors that consider the time value of money and its impact on future cash flow.

  •  3 Key Financial Metrics

The difference herethese 3 key financial metrics are calculated based upon the input values selected for real-world financial factors.

  • Factored Rate of Return (FRR)

  • Factored Present Value (FPV)

  • Factored Payback Period (FPP)

  •  Financial Factors

Financial factors account for the time value of money and external financial factors. Financial factors are applied when calculating each of the 3 key financial metrics to provide a real-world estimate of how future cash flow impacts each key financial metric. Top management leadership defines the value to be used for each financial factor.

  • Tax Rate

  • Discount Rate

  • Inflation Rate

  • Reinvestment Rate




  •   Financial Ratings​ (Poor/Moderate/Good)​

    • For each financial metric, top management leadership establishes strategic threshold values for "Poor" and "Goodto achieve desired financial objectivesglobally 24x7​​.




  • ​​   Financial Viability Index (FVI)

The financial viability index (FVI) is an AI algorithm that incorporates all 3 key financial metrics (FRR, FPV, FPP) to support strategic project selection aligned with executive leadership financial strategy (FVA Guidelines). Why is the FVI important? A project with a “Good” present value may have a “Poor” rate of returnfor example, when a contract lasts a long time but doesn’t pay very much. If present value is the only consideration in project selection, you may unknowingly select projects with “Poor” rates of returnthis can be avoided by using FVI to guide strategic project selection to optimize value and make best use of limited resources.

As shown in the FVI equation, the FVI project value is relative to "Good"therefore a project with an FVI value of 1.0 or greater has a financial rating of "Good" as defined by top management leadership.

  • See the estimated financial value the proposed project and compare it against the current improvement portfolio.


4. Strategic Project Selection | Project vs. Portfoliois this project worth doing relative to other projects in the portfolio?

  • Compare the the value of the proposed project relative to the current improvement portfolio. The financial value and risk rating of a proposed project is ranked relative to the current improvement portfolio. When selecting a project, risk rating should be considered in conjunction with financial value. How does the value of this proposed project compare to other projects in the portfolio?
