This situation clearly shows that there is a perceptional difference between you and the business users.

First, a BA should understand the business users' perception to know why they say something. Then, it would be easy to prove them that yours is the right or the best possible solution. If they see what you are seeing, they will understand why you are saying that and why it is the best one.
