DART (Decision Analysis by Ranking Techniques) is a powerful and user-friendly software tool designed for the ranking of chemicals according to their environmental and toxicological concern based on the most recent ranking theories. Different kinds of order ranking methods, roughly classified as total (also called even-scoring) and partial-order ranking methods (Hasse diagram technique), are implemented in DART. These methods can be used to rank chemicals on the basis of more than one variable.

DART was developed by Talete on the basis of a collaboration with the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC, Ispra - Italy). The software is made freely available as a service to scientific researchers and anyone with an interest in the application of computer-based ranking methods.
