Qualitative Indicator

The qualitative indicator is a special, generic indicator which can be applied for a wide variety of purposes.

How is the qualitative indicator implemented in the Tygron Platform?

The right panel with a qualitative indicator selected.

The qualitative indicator is not designed towards a specific purpose. Instead, it functions as a tally with no calculation model behind it. By defining effects of functions on this indicator, you can make specific functions count towards this indicator. This way, the qualitative indicator can be used to count any aspect not covered by any of the predefined indicators.

Indicator targets

The qualitative indicator has 1 value for a target.

Target amount of points.
The amount of points that must be scored on this indicator to reach 100%.

Indicator settings

Unit Dimension

The qualitative indicator's default unit dimension is "points". You can alter the unit dimension to better fit your specific purpose. For example, when dealing with energy, you can decide to use "kiloWatt" or "Joule".

Calculation per

When construction types are made to score on a qualitative indicator, you can choose whether to have constructions score on this indicator per "Ground surface area" or by "Floor space". To clarify, a building of 3 stories with a ground surface area of 100m² has a floor space of 300m².

Indicator properties

This indicator is a global indicator. This means the indicator and its target are the same for all stakeholders.

This indicator can be added to a project as often as desired, with each instance indicating a different theme for one or more stakeholders.

This indicator is represented with a progress bar, representing a scale of 0 to 100% score.

This indicator functions as a tally. The amount added and subtracted results in the current value.

This indicator scores uniformly on the entire session. It is not divided into a separate sub-score per zone.
