Q. This technique is used typically in a process or product development/improvement process (such as DMAIC)  to understand a system and understand how one part effects the others. 


Future Reality trees are used to map out and understand a system and how one part effects the others. This is one of the thinking skills taught by Eliyahu Goldratt in his book “It’s Not Luck”. This Future Reality logic tree represents the desired reality to move to –how  the system should look like to operate as per the expectation. This tool helps to gain more insight into the system of causes and effects that must be created in order to create the desired reality. First the desired objectives at the top of a page are written the the injection(s) are written at the bottom of the page. Then the team  finds out if the injection that  have been identified can and will lead to the desired outcomes. Second, the team finds out more about what it will take to make the injection real.
