QOC

Document your decision with the QOC approach. Alternatively you can use this plugin as a score boarding model.

Manual

Question
The red box contains a textbox for a question with several options.

Options
Drag for every option a blue box on the workspace and write in the textbox a description. Connect every option with a 'QuestionOptionEdge' to the question. The score will be calculated automatically, when you connect the options with criteria. The option with the highest score is tagged as 'Preferred'.

Criteria
Criteria nodes contain a textfield for description of the criterion and a texfield for the degree of relevance the criterion will play in the decision support: For that end the content of the textfield is assumed to be a numerical integral value between 0 (low relevance) and 100 (high relevance); if the value is not a valid value, the content is emphasized in red colour. The score will be adjusted accordingly.

Edges

Question-Option edges should connect a question node with an option node. They do not have any edge attributes.

Evaluation edges (positive and negative) should connect an option node with a criterion node. Positive edges express an option to have a positive assessment with respect to the criterion it is connected to. The degree of positive relation can be varied by editing the integral number (0 for neutral, 100 for completely fulfilling the criterion) attached to the edge. The colour of the edge is automatically adapted to the value (white for 0, bright green for 100).

Negative edges (visualized dotted) express an option to have a negative assessment with respect to the criterion it is connected to. The degree of negative relation can be varied by editing the integral number (0 for neutral, 100 for completely violating the criterion) attached to the edge. The colour of the edge is automatically adapted to the value (white for 0, red for 100).

Example

The plugin can use this plug-in together with Discuss plug-in to make annotations.
