The airfocus focus score is a computed priority value, taking pros and cons of your prioritization framework into account.

The focus score is the weighted sum over all X / Y criteria (the underlying criteria of your X / Y factors). Depending on the scoring direction (whether a factor is a good or bad), the values before the weighting are either normalised to 0 to 1 or vice versa to 1 to 0.

Normalised values

For 0 - 10 value type criteria

  • 0 -> 0.00
  • 5 -> 0.50
  • 10 -> 1.00

For S/M/L/XL value type criteria

  • S -> 0.00
  • M -> 0.33
  • L -> 0.66
  • XL -> 1.00

For money value type criteria

  • $0 -> 0.00
  • $Max -> 1.00
  • ...

Score calculation (example)

Value (Y – higher values are better) (60%)

  • CritY1 (70%)
  • CriyY2 (30%)

Costs (X - lower values are better) (40%)

  • CritX1 (80%)
  • CriyX2 (20%)

Score = (normCritY1 * 0.7 + normCritY2 * 0.3) * 0.6 + (1 - (normCritX1 * 0.8 + normCritX2 * 0.2) * 0.4
