Hidden Variable Susceptibility


Document and assess whether applying Product Outputs will result in the creation of new hidden Variables in the system. If true, record the new Variable during data gathering, or prevent the creation of the new Variable through improved Product Definition(s) and implementation.


To (a) determine and prevent risk of unpredictable behaviour once the Product Outcomes are applied; and (b) highlight associated risks in the Product Lifecycle.
