Abstract
Software product evaluation can be problematical as products from different backgrounds are likely to exhibit different strengths and weaknesses. A weakness in one area will not necessarily eliminate a product from consideration as project requirements are seldom absolute. What therefore is needed is a systematic approach which helps to identify the product or products which best meet the needs of the project or organisation. A method will be described which has been designed to assess the suitability of software products against the total requirements of a project. The method consists of a weighted scoring technique based on a customisable criteria hierarchy. Different scenarios in which the method can be used will be covered, together with a description of a hierarchy for the evaluation of text-based information management system
