Definitions Edit

A trade-off is

[s]election among alternatives with the intent of obtaining the optimal, achievable system configuration. Often a decision is made to opt for less of one parameter in order to achieve a more favorable overall system result.[1]
[g]iving up or accepting one advantage, or disadvantage, to gain another that has more value to the decision maker. For example, accepting the higher cost (a disadvantage) of a project because there will be more functionality (an advantage) in the delivered product.[2]
