2019 - Expressing print quality in one number?

As we discussed at the 2018 DPWG meeting we are looking toward a potential new research project that covers a consensual way to aggregate individual print quality tolerances (like dE, TVI, spread, grey balance etc.) into one single value (typically scaled from 0 to 100) and expressed in %. The aim is to provide a „Fogra calculation method" that anyone can agree on and can (optionally !!) implement. Then e.g. a "80% quality" can be compared among vendors, what you cannot do today. The following table try to list all relevant print quality tools that provide such a socre. It is subject for change so please tell us if there is something wrong or missing.
