Benchmark

Wiki

A benchmark is a accepted standard of performance that has been achieved by a member or members of an industry group....

Benchmarking

Wiki

Benchmarking determines where the enterprise is in relation to performing activities with "best-of-breed" or world-class companies. It measures the performance or the degree of success that has been realized in comparison to other companies for a given activity, value stream, or other factors of interest. These measures then become the basis for analysis and redesign.

Benefit Estimation

Wiki

A technique used for estimating the direct (tangible) or indirect (intangible) favorable results of an action taken. Tangible benefits can be measured in terms of their direct monetary value, such as increase in revenue; intangible benefits are the favorable results that may not be measurable in dollar terms, such as improved morale of the employees, but can be estimated using a qualitative approach.
