Now that you have successfully finished creating your first model, it is time to create some Decision Forms that use it. All you need to do is to follow the steps 1 to 8 of pictures 5, 6, 7 and 8 and create your first Decision Form. The ‘model’ is a template we use to evaluate an employee for example, while the ‘form’ is the actual evaluation.
The basic factors you created previously are now visible. These factors hold the weights that you entered in the first steps. The weights determine the importance of each factor in this particular evaluation model. In this step you enter some scores to assess each factor, considering the specific use case you are evaluating.
If your decision model contains not only basic factors (level 1) but nested factors (level 2, 3) as well, before saving, click ‘level 2’ and then ‘level 3’ to score/evaluate them, too.
A Spider-web chart at the bottom of the page will appear that shows the evolution of the weighted scores for each factor from level 1 to level 2. In a real-life scenario, this might represent how the importance of each basic factor changes as you research more into it and start breaking it down into sub-factors.
Repeat the process of creating a decision form as many times as your specific case requires. For example, if you have to evaluate the performance of 10 employees, you will create 10 decision forms, concerning the same decision model.
