Ah! I get it, finally. OPMS is not a method of analysis, like a flow chart or a decision table, it is a method of persuasion. That is why you cannot present to us the results of an OPMS analysis. The process is the result. That is why process is everything to you. That is why OPMS is an endless road to nowhere. That is why your writings have less the flavor of an engineer working on a physical problem and much, much more the flavor of a psychologist who wants everyone in the same room, sharing feelings. Everyone's feelings are equally valid, and you are not looking for an optimal outcome except insofar as consensus is optimal, whatever that consensus might be.

OK, I'm done.
