This can give guidance, and even answer questions the Management process poses. Such as:

When will the current speed of the Local Area Network create a bottleneck that reduces productivity?
How much bandwidth is being consumed by the new CCTV HD Colour/Infrared Cameras we have deployed?
Can the available Internet bandwidth be used more efficiently by moving some time independent data transfers to a different time slot?
