A feasibility study is an analysis of how successfully a project can be completed, accounting for factors that affect it such as economic, technological, legal and scheduling factors. We use feasibility studies to determine potential positive and negative outcomes of a project before investing a considerable amount of time and money into it.
A feasibility study tests the viability of an idea, a project or even a new business. The goal of a feasibility study is to place emphasis on potential problems that could occur if a project is pursued and determine if, after all significant factors are considered, the project should be pursued. Feasibility studies also allows a business to address where and how it will operate, potential obstacles, competition and the funding needed to get the business up and running.
