Abstract

Present methods and facilities for the evaluation of expert’s competence are researched. The most suitable methods for the evaluation of expert’s competence – the methods of data uncertainties and Analytic Hierarchy Process are analysed in detail and selected. Evaluation of expert’s competence in the field of technical regulation (time and frequency measurement) according to the set criteria was carried out. The results were processed by special methodologies, and also universal and specialized software. The specialized software facilities take into account the data uncertainties and application of the method of analytic hierarchy process. With the application of the universal software Microsoft Excel (USA), the ratio of the averages for the criteria used for the evaluation of expert’s competence in the field of technical regulation was estimated.

Comparative analyses of the results obtained using the methods for the evaluation of expert’s competence taking into account the data uncertainties and applying the method of analytic hierarchy process was carried out. The results of the analysis showed the convergence and correlation of the data obtained, and also confirmed the fitness of the methods for the evaluation of expert’s competence. The results showed a small dispersion of the average values for the criteria of evaluation of expert’s competence in the limits from 5.2 to 7.9, which testifies to a good balance. Dispersion of the values obtained using the given methods shows correlation.

The methods for the evaluation of expert’s competence which take into account the data uncertainties and application of the method of analytic hierarchy process,are expedient to apply as a useful tool for the comparative estimation of expert’s competence on the basis of objective data according to the set criteria for different fields (spheres) of activity. This will assist the increase of evaluation authenticity and will allow forming more competent groups of experts.
