Another objective of this framework involves specifying thepresence of alternatives which can be applied. Moreover, this framework is also used to identifythe moral factors in each of the applied alternatives. Furthermore, it also involves testing of theresolutions such that it best fits the scenario (Kotalik et al. 2014).
