Chapter 3: The Tool 13 3.2.6 Evaluation Criteria Groups The weights entered in the tables above are used to assess the operator's priorities within a sin- gle evaluation criteria group (i.e., security objectives, non-security effects, 33 CFR compliance, locations, or threat type). The weights provided below will be used to adjust weights between evaluation criteria groups according to the priorities for your operation. After each description, enter the number from 0 to 5 (see definitions below) that best indicates the relative importance of the evaluation criteria group. 0 = not important 3 = moderate importance 1 = low importance 4 = moderate to high importance 2 = low to moderate importance 5 = high importance Importance Evaluation Criteria Groups (0 5) Security Objectives Non-Security Effects 33 CFR Compliance Locations Threat Type When the information in Worksheet 1 is completed, the tool calculates the value of each GSM in accordance with the user-set weighting factors. These will appear in Worksheet 2, Valuations. 3.3 Worksheet 2, Valuations Figure 3 shows a view of Worksheet 2, Valuations. This worksheet is used to sort GSMs based on valuations in utils. These valuations are calculated from the weights given by the user to dif- ferent evaluation criteria (entered in Worksheet 1, Evaluation Weights), and from the applica- bility rankings of GSMs (entered in Worksheet 4, Applicability Ranks). Step 2 (see Figure 1) requires the following: Sort area A11 to P112 by Columns G through O (refer to the box below for instructions on sorting in Excel). This will provide the first prioritizations of GSMs. In Column P, enter the order of sorted rows for comparison with subsequent sorts. Record (in a separate file or on paper) the GSM numbers (from Column A) that are of great- est interest to you for further analysis. Any edits made in this worksheet will not be copied to other worksheets. Changes in cell content should be made in Worksheet 3 (Characterization) to change content in Columns A through E, and Worksheets 1 (Evaluation Weights) and 4 (Applicability Ranks) to change the utils shown in Columns G through O.

View of Worksheet 2, Valuations. How to Sort in Excel Highlight the area to be sorted. To do this on Worksheet 2, start with the cursor in Cell A11, hold the "shift" key down while moving the mouse to Cell P11. While still holding the shift key down, press "down page," or "end" followed by down arrow. The entire contents from Cells A11 to P112 should be highlighted. Release the shift key and click on "Data" at the top of the screen, then click on "sort" in the drop- down box. Click on the down arrow to show the drop box under "Sort By," select "Column O" to sort on the "Total Utils" or other columns to sort by a particular evaluation criteria group. Select "Descending" to the right of the drop-box and then click "OK" at the bottom of the "Sort" box. The highlighted area will be re- ordered with the GSMs with the highest number of utils at the top of the page.
