The paper summarizes progress in development of the logic framework for a prototype Coating Alternatives GuidE (CAGE) system to assist the end user with sorting through information about lower-emitting coatings. The goal of this work is to develop a computer-based tool that coating users, and those providing technical assistance to them, will be able to use to select technically appropriate, cost-effective, and low-emitting coatings. The initial focus is on developing CAGE to provide information about alternative coatings for metal parts and products painting.
