Multi-criteria analysis may be used to prioritize competing treatment options from which the maintenance strategy may be selected. A number of criteria may be selected that align with the levels of service and/or goals and objectives of the organization. Typically, these may include safety, serviceability, sustainability, and accessibility. A weighting to demonstrate the relative importance of these factors may be selected from which an overall score is determined. The necessity to meet statutory requirements needs to be reflected in the scoring. This technique can be used where benefits and costs are less tangible to define. However, it supports a qualitative assessment as well as a quantitative one.
