Getting Started with the Pros & Cons Analyzer

Pros and Cons analysis can be a very useful tool when you need to do some very quick analysis.

In SpiceLogic Pros and Cons Analyzer, there are 3 ways to measure importance. Direct Importance number, where you can say that I have 10% interest, etc. You can use Money as a measure of Value. Or you can use pairwise comparisons. We have dedicated pages for each procedure. Please visit the dedicated documentation pages to learn more about these procedures.

1. Direct Importance Capture in the range of 1 to 9, using a Slider.
2. Money as a measure of Value
3. Pairwise Comparison.

When you start the application, you can choose the measurement process on the start screen. Say, you have a dilemma about a job offer you received. Should you take it or wait for a better offer. Start the Pros and Cons analysis tool, and click the button "Add new Option" as shown in the following screenshot.
