Indices are a crystallized set of elements that are given to legal facts and permutations as aesthetic or superficial values. It is a representative weighting scheme that summarily encapsulates the consequences (both negative and positive) of legal facts and permutations.
These Indices are divided up into four base elements: “P” Indices meaning Positive and “N” Indices meaning Negative:
A “Hypo Positive” Indice, one of good standing and most likely to lead to a favourable outcome in legal proceedings, however not a legal one, merely factual. A “Green Light”. Example: Having kept a safe following distance in a Motor Vehicle Accident Matter.
A “Hyper Positive” Indice. Good in law, always a Fact or Permutation materializing as a result of a Legislative\ Constitutional principle or Court Order. Most likely to lead to a favourable outcome in legal proceedings. Exists merely by application of the law. Example: Instituting a 3rd Party Claim based on the Road Accident Fund Act or obtaining a Court Order or Interdict.
A “Hypo Negative” Indice, one of bad standing, a factual deterrent which is most likely to lead to an unfavourable outcome in legal proceedings, however not a legal one. “Red Light”. Example: Having not kept a safe following distance in a Motor Vehicle Accident Matter.
A “Hyper Negative” Indice. Bad in law, always a Legislative or Constitutional prohibition. Most likely to lead to an unfavourable outcome in legal proceedings. Exists merely by application of Law, can be a Civil or Criminal prohibition. Example: Having driven under the influence of alcohol in a Motor Vehicle Accident Matter.
Each Permutations’ Constructs have to be assigned an Indice. This step is absolutely vital, LQS’s underlying technology relies heavily on the Indice Synthesis. The LQS Manual explains this process in detail and provides easy to understand tutorials and examples on how to effectively synthesize Indices. We also recommend that you attend one of Quantum Data Works’ Workshops to see this process in action, ask questions and engage with facilitators in person.
To synthesize the Indices of a Permutation, it has to have already been bu
