Selection of a suitable software is an everyday problem for many users. This process if often ineffective, as the users usually work only with a restricted set of programs and are unable to have appropriate knowledge about all programs available. The paper therefore deals with the model of a system for optimized software selection process. Applications of this kind are already available online, but they are usually aimed at narrow-band area, recommending often commercial programs only. Users also cannot influence the process of selection. The system described in this paper removes this insufficiency. A mathematical model is designed, which works with input sets of users’ requirements and programs’ properties, recommending an optimal solution. The system is designed as open, extensible and accessible and is oriented on users and their needs.
