Qualitative Engine is a latest-generation platform with features designed to create and study complex systems with causal behaviour(1), using qualitative reasoning techniques.


Q-Engine is the solution to challenges presented by complex systems in which many factors must be taken into consideration. It is a highly versatile platform which allows the creation of models based on qualitative and quantitative variables treated with causal operators(1). In addition, it carries out an analysis of the model created, and proposes optimisations for the initial settings of the variables in order to increase the value of the obtained results.

  As added value, Q-Engine includes an active listening system, which can provide information on the power of variables on social media.

Proposal for Q-Engine fields of application and notes from projects developed using this platform.


    > Strategic territorial plans

    The development of a support system for decisions when creating strategic plans for the development of emerging territories, which allows:

    • An analysis of the various options for action regarding the development of the territory, with the aim of optimising impact.
    • The systematisation and tailoring of the information necessary for monitoring economic and social development in the territory.

    > E-government

    The modelling of public institutions to measure and improve efficiency, with the active participation of affected social agents.

    • Provision of the necessary methods and tools for evaluating the development of e-government. Simulations and recommendations.
    • Provision of the knowledge and tools necessary for developing plans for administrative modernisation and improvement.

    > Citizen security

    The creation of an analysis methodology for the evaluation of the impact of social actions taken to improve citizen security.

    > Emigration / immigration

    The creation of a methodology for the analysis of migration and its economic, social, political and cultural impact for societies of both origin and destination.




    > Management of the managerial team

    Analysis and improvements in the development of the company.

    • Decision-making, once bound by the factors and circumstances within the socio-economic context, depends on the expertise of the managerial team based on methodologies which can be modelled.

    > Export

    The definition of a methodology, in the format of knowledge engineering, which acts as a support and guide in the process of achieving the company's export goals.



    > Strategic planning of university management

    Support tools for decision-making in defining planning strategies for university management.

    A systematic process for the search, selection, analysis and distribution of information regarding the environment and its main players, with the aim of evaluating the efficiency of the University within the training cycles provided, and in R&D (the optimisation of social impact).


    > Dynamic management of sustainability in tourism activity on a regional scale

    The development of an analysis methodology based on regional sustainability indicators obtained through the integration of partial data for the areas making up the region.

    > Ecotourism development

    The model allows the administrations responsible for managing tourism to have a tool for the analysis and planning of the development of ecotourism based on the natural values of the territory, from the point of view of landscape and nature conservation, diversification of the local economy, control over the impact of growth on the area, etc.

    > Analysis of the impact of urban planning projects on sustainability

    The creation of a tool to evaluate and prevent the negative impact on sustainability of various options for urban planning:

    • Theme parks
    • Shopping areas
    • The development of industrial areas
    • Housing promotion
    • The impact of public transport infrastructure projects
    • Protected natural areas
    • Public transport
    • Supra-municipal facilities

    > Treatment of mental illness

    A bioinformatical methodology for optimising the treatment of mental illness, which allows the analysis of external (social environment) and internal (genetics, emotional state) factors that affect the evolution of the illness (with a known multi-gene basis, e.g. schizophrenia, epilepsy, Alzheimer's).

    > Control of the evolution of genetic illnesses (human genome)

    Using an analysis model based on qualitative indicators, it is possible to predict the seriousness and evolution of the illness of a particular patient, once the genetic sequence causing the illness is known. Pathologies studied: cystic fibrosis, deafness, diastrophic dysplasia, haemophilia A, long QT syndrome, Menkes syndrome, Pendred syndrome, polycystic kidney disease, sickle-cell anaemia, Wilson's disease and Zellweger syndrome.



    > The impact of communication on social participation

    The creation of an analysis methodology which allows an evaluation of the impact of mass media (television) on the quality of citizen participation, with the aim of improving the content presented through the media and reversing social and cultural degradation caused by the dominance of commercial interests.

Below we have added some practical examples by way of an introduction to the operation of the Q-Engine platform through the creation of ad hoc models.


Is it possible to evaluate the risks regarding social inclusion in a municipality where this risk needs to be measured periodically with a definition of critical points, identifying those which are managed well and those which require further action?
