Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0152126A2] A product selection system and method is implemented in an interactive medium and compares criteria for a product selected by a consumer or business with the attributes of all known products in that field. The system identifies products which satisfy the needs of the user and provides a detailed objective comparison of products, ranked by the suitability of each product against the selection criteria. Categories of objective attributes can be removed from consideration and products are then re-ranked according to remaining categories. Once a satisfactory objective comparison has been made, the user may assess subjective elements, such as design and handling, and the products are accordingly re-ranked. Finally, a list of top ranked products, and price and availability of the top ranked product are displayed.
