Claim of US Patent No. 10,366,361

1. An apparatus to interface with users to perform group assessment processing and display of results in conjunction with selection of items, the apparatus in the form of a tangibly embodied computer processor, the computer processor implementing instructions on a non-transitory computer medium disposed in a database, the database in communication with the computer processor, the apparatus comprising:a communication portion that provides communication between the computer processor and electronic user devices;
the database; and
the computer processor, the computer processor performing processing including:
storing first assessment architecture data, in the form of data records that include data representing alternatives, associated with a first assessment architecture for group assessment processing;
storing second assessment architecture data, in the form of further data records that include data representing alternatives, associated with a second assessment architecture for group assessment processing;
interfacing with a user, to input linking data related to linking the first assessment architecture with the second assessment architecture;
based on the linking data, linking the first assessment architecture with the second assessment architecture;
identifying a data content change in either the first assessment architecture or the second assessment architecture;
mapping, by accessing data in the database, the data content change to an action item; and
if the data content change that relates to a first alternative of at least being processed or being approved was identified in the first assessment architecture, then perform the action item in the second assessment architecture, such that the performing processing including changes in the first assessment architecture are automatically passed on to the second assessment architecture; or
if the data content change that relates to a second alternative of at least being processed or being approved was identified in the second assessment architecture, then perform the action item in the first assessment architecture, such that the performing processing including changes in the second assessment architecture are automatically passed on to the first assessment architecture; and
the first assessment architecture being a parent model to the second assessment architecture, and the second assessment architecture being a child model to the first assessment architecture.
