AbstractA London-based company wishes to develop a Weighted Fcators Analysis (WeFA) schema, which represents complex knowledge in a setting/context, requires formulation and formalisation of the underlying mathematics so that the models thus developed lend themselves to objective evaluation.
The Weighted Fcators Analysis (WeFA) methodology employs a bipolar modelling logic based on positive and negative factors which influence the attainment of a goal. They have a simple mathematical approach to solving these models which require robust formalisation and development. Some research into this around 12 years ago at a mathematics department of a university proved inconclusive and a London-based company wishes to restart this task. The WeFA schema underpin many of the company's systems analysis and evaluation solutions and availability of a robust mathematical foundation is highly desirable to make these computations credible.
Technical Specifications / Specific technical requirements:
The Weighted Fcators Analysis (WeFA) is a group based knowledge capture, representation and evaluation methodology. An expert panel will be chosen to represent related but diverse and non-overlapping aspects of the problem being studied. The focal point of a group study in WeFA is an AIM represented graphically by an oval annotated with brief relevant text. With the active participation of the expert panel, the AIM is defined, agreed and decomposed into a number of influencing factors (GOALs). The GOALs which are deemed to support the attainment of the AIM are classed as Drivers and those opposing the attainment of the AIM are considered Inhibitors. The Driver GOALs are represented by ellipses with yellow background linked upward to the AIM or other GOALs with green forward arrows implying positive influence. The Inhibitor GOALs are represented by ellipses with dark background colour, linked to the AIM or other GOALs that they influence with red arrows pointing backward (towards themselves) implying negative influence.
