The typical structure of a cross-impact analysis using ScenarioWizard is as follows:
1. Generate a list of descriptors (relevant system elements) and their qualitative variants, the "analysis structure".
2. Enter the cross-impact data into this structure. The analysis structure and the cross-impact data together form the cross-impact matrix.
3. Evaluate the cross-impact matrix by computing its solution set (the set of consistent scenarios). One way to depict the solution set is to arrange the scenarios into a scenario tableau:
4. ScenarioWizard provides several analysis functions to analyze the obtained scenarios. Among others, the software can generate an automatic scenario report discussing the pros and cons of all scenario assumptions using textual and graphical elements.
