Table 1 High-level functional requirements for organization design tool

From: Using an algorithmic approach for grouping roles and sub-units

#Functional requirementExplanation
1Support collection of data from the organizationThe tool should make it possible to collect data about work process-related interdependencies between roles
2Allow visualization of interdependenciesThe tool should include visual maps and provide the decision maker with an overview of the role interdependencies
3Generate grouping of elements (roles, sub-units etc.)The tool should provide a suggested grouping (or clustering) of the data that minimizes coordination cost, and thus indicate an improved way of organizing roles/sub-units
