Abstract

This paper describes a method for updating the meaning of priority values assigned to items when the actual priorities change (increase or decrease) over time, but the assigned priorities are limited in range and remain unchanged over the lifetime of the item. Key to the method is that items will have a limited lifetime on the list. The method allows for the dynamic assignment of meaning when none was possible before.
