Company stability: Strength

Costs: Strength

Data input tools: Strength

Distributed support: Weakness

Data readers: Weakness

Video capability: Strength

Hardcopy: Weakness

Documentation: Strength

Support: Strength

Usability: Strength

9.5.3 Summary

A very good general purpose package, providing rich functionality suited to a wide skill range of users, although more particularly those with programming experience. PV-WAVE is complementary to Uniras and AVS in the community, and not in competition with them.

Strengths which will carry the system forward are its data input tools and functionality. Some aspects of support will require attention by the suppliers in view of anticipated environmental changes. Ready-made data readers, and hardcopy facilities, represent the most significant weaknesses. The expected widening skill range of users is the chief environmental factor showing advantage for this system.
