Abstract: 

The goal of this project is to develop the LSP Evaluator as a web-based software tool which can be used to evaluate the suitability of products using the LSP method. This tool can also be used in the process of learning the LSP method. In this project, the LSP method is implemented in a simple canonical form based on user-friendly web-based application. Users can create any number of input attributes and can evaluate and compare any number of competitive products (or other objects/alternatives). Each attribute has an adjustable degree of importance which is easily selected from an importance menu. Attribute criteria are defined in flexible tabular forms. The attributes are classified in two groups: mandatory and optional. Mandatory criteria must be satisfied and optional criteria are desirable, but it is acceptable if some of them are not satisfied. LSP Evaluator uses a fixed aggregation structure based on a partial absorption function. Users of this tool need minimum knowledge of the LSP evaluation method and consequently LSP Evaluator is a convenient tool for general nonprofessional users.
