NextPrevUpTopContentsIndex Optimization of the Strategy

A conflict resolution strategy may be optimized by combining the constituent tactics in a more effective manner. There are three different types of conflict resolution tactic:

KnowledgeWorks is best able to optimize rule-defined tactics and least able to optimize dynamic tactics. The optimizations for a particular type of tactic can only be applied if it is preceded only by tactics which can be optimized to the same degree (or better). For example, in the strategy (recency priority) , the tactic priority would only be optimized as a static tactic. In the strategy (priority mea recency) , priority can be optimized as a rule-defined tactic but recency will be treated as a dynamic tactic.

Some final points to bear in mind:
