Constraint analysis research pertains to identification and quantification of factors responsible for lack of technology adoption and performance. The most common methodologies for constraint analysis includes; Garrett’s ranking technique, Rank Based Quotient (RBQ) Followed By Value Based Index (VBI), Weighted Mean, Delphi methodology, Pair wise Comparison,  AHP,  fuzzy analytic hierarchy, Kruskal-Wallis H Test, Friedman Test, Post Hoc Tests etc. The paper tries to discuss major data requirements, assumptions, formulae used, application of tests and interpretation of results of various methods so that the researchers can choose the best option available according to data set.
