The inadequate quality of context forces the context consumers in pervasive environments to reason about the quality and relevance of context to be confident of its worth to perform their functionality. The additional task of analyzing large volumes of context drastically affects the performance of the context consumers to adjust to dynamically changing situations. A single value that presents the quality and relevance of context information tailored to the needs of a particular context consumer may release them from spending resources on context quality analysis and let them concentrate on their main task.
