I attended a talk by Roy Murray-Prior who studied decision making of wool
classers. I don't think he used grids but did utilise PCP approaches from
what I recall. In 1993 his address was: Dept of Agricultural Economics
and Business Management, University of New England Armidale, 4059 Australia.

I believe his approach involved the stages in decision making. In contrast
I have conducted research regarding whether mental health staff would release
types of patients represented by case scenarios. I don't know much about
building surveyers but would be interested to hear more about your proposed
approach or the decisions faced by surveyors.
