The Development of a web based business assessment tool for evaluating and prioritising factors impacting on business performance. The system is based on a scalable set of factors under a number of expandable categories. There are about 20-30 questions under 8 categories each category wit two or three sub categories. The system must be expandable so that new factors and categories can be added in the future without requiring new coding.
Each factor is scored along a number of measures using a mix of qualitative and quantitative inputs fields (e.g. Low Medium High or a score fro 1 to 10). The results for each factor are calculated, (through simple addition, multiplications and where necessary a search through lookup tables). The results are clustered and prioritised in a final report. Access to the system needs to be secure and controlled and will need to support more than one company. A company might have more than one session as well as several version of each set of answers or sessions so that a company can manage its sessions and retrieve older assessments so that they can monitor their progress.

Web based application for microsoft explorer.
A intuitive user interface is needed as the users are not IT professionals. The system needs to be windows based and developed using a .NET platform utilising Microsoft SQL. We have developed and tested a database schema for this system and prototyped some parts of it using ASP but feel that .net is a better approach.
