Feasibility Report

What is feasibility study?

• A feasibility study is an analysis of the viability of

an idea through a disciplined and documented
process of thinking through the idea from its
logical beginning to its logical end.

• Feasibility study is carried out in order to assess

the viability of a new project

• It is primary and most important thing in

development of a project
Reasons to Do a Study
• Gives focus to the project.
• Narrows the business alternatives.
• Identifies new opportunities.
• Identifies reasons not to proceed.
• Provides valuable information for “go/no go”
• Increases probability of business success by
identifying weaknesses early.
• Provides documentation that the idea was
thoroughly investigated.
Types of feasibility
• Operational feasibility

1. Useful for identifying operational problems to be solved,

and their urgency
2. The “PIECES” framework
– P-Performance ,I-Information, E-economy , C-control
– E-efficiency ,I-Information, S-services
Types of feasibility

• Market Feasibility
1. Determine facility needs.
2. Suitability of production technology.
3. Availability and suitable of site.
4. Raw materials.
5. Other inputs
Types of feasibility

• Financial/Economic Feasibility
1. Estimate the total capital requirements.
2. Estimate equity and credit needs.
3. Budget expected costs and returns

• Organizational/Managerial Feasibility
1. Business Structure
2. Business Founders

• Environmental feasibility
• Environmental impact and their assessment
Types of feasibility
• Legal feasibility
1. Is the project legally feasible?
2. Legal requirements.
Feasibility report
• A feasibility report is the results of a feasibility
study. This report details whether or not a project
should be undertaken and the reasons for that
• Report Content
1. Introduction/Executive Summary
2. Background
3. outline of project
4. Methodology/method of analysis
5. Overview of alternatives
6. Conclusion
7. Recommendation
Introduction/Executive summary
1. It states the objective of the report and of the
2. It should refer terms of references
3. Also it should state the constraints within
which it has been conducted
4. Executive summary:
• This should concise summary of the major
recommendations of the report within 6 pages so that
it quickly understood by senior executive

• Some feasibility reports may require some background

discussion in order to make the rest of the report
meaningful to readers.

• Describe your proposed plan in sufficient detail state if it

worked elsewhere and how it was implemented

• Background on the Situation. For many feasibility reports,

you'll need to discuss the problem, need, or opportunity
that has brought about this report.
Outline of system

• Outline of system involves description of project

• List type and quality of product(s) or service(s) to be
• Outline the general business model (ie. how the
business will make money).
• Include the technical processes, size, location, and
kind of inputs.
• Specify the time horizon from the time the project is
initiated until it is up and running at capacity.
• It involves discussion on method of analysis for
feasibility study

• Return on Investment (ROI) analysis

• For comparing overall profitability
• ROI = Estimated lifetime benefits - Estimated
lifetime costs
• Estimated lifetime costs
• or
• ROI = Net Present value / Estimated lifetime costs
SWOT Analysis :-


• What can do for maintain these strengths?


• What should I do to overcome these weakness?


• What can I do to take the advantage of these opportunities?


• What can i do to overcome these threats?

Overview of alternatives
• Possible alternatives
• “Sticking with the current system” should always be studied as
one alternative
• Different business processes for solving the problems
• Different levels/types of computerization for the solutions

• Advantages and disadvantages of the alternatives

• The major possible alternatives should be

discussed and compared using clearly defined
1. Estimate Equity and Credit
– Identify alternative equity sources and capital availability
 Producers, Local Investors, Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists

– Identify and assess alternative credit sources.

 Banks, Government (direct loans or loan guarantees), Grants,
 Local and State Economic Development Incentives.

– Assess expected financing needs and alternative sources.

 Interest Rates, Terms, Conditions, Etc.
2. Cost and benefits evaluation
• It demonstrate how this proposal is feasible

• It involves discussion technological feasibility, economic

practicality, social desirability, and ecological soundness

• Examples of benefits
1. cost reductions
2. error reductions
3. increased throughput
4. increased flexibility of operation
5. improved operation
6. better (e.g., more accurate) and more timely information.
• Types of costs
Development costs purchasing cost, Installation cost,
operational cost
• The conclusions section of a feasibility is the
restatement of the conclusions you have already
reached in the comparison sections. In this
section, you restate the individual conclusions,
for example, which model had the best price,
which had the best battery function, and so on.

• It must untangle all the conflicting conclusions

and somehow reach the final conclusion, which is
the one that states which is the best choice
• The final section of feasibility reports states the

• The recommendation section should echo the

most important conclusions leading to the
recommendation and then state the
recommendation emphatically.

• The basis for that judgment has to be stated

somewhere in the requirements section.
