Alternatives - a brief 25 character description of each alternative available to a decision maker must be entered. At least 2 alternatives must be entered.

Factors - attributes of alternatives or evaluation criteria used to evaluate alternatives. Enter a 10 character label. At least 2 factors must be entered.

Scores - a numeric assessment of how well an alternative meets each identified factor. Scores can range from 0 to 100. Each alternative must be scored on each identified factor. The default value is 0.

Weights - a numeric assessment of the importance of each identified factor. Each weight should be a number from 1 to 10. Weights are automatically standardized so the sum of the weights equals 10. The default weight is zero and factors with weight equal 0 are not used in calculations.
