Abstract: The paper introduces a new framework for assessing banks and financial firms using an intelligent model. The new assessment model uses heterogeneous variables evaluations and includes different business aspects of the company. A production-based rules model is provided, which includes representation of company management variable, financial performance of the company and different strategic variables. We propose a new framework based on the production rules to provide an evaluation of the firm even with imprecise values of input. The result is the value of the company that represents an aggregation of the input values. The initial results showed that the new framework is suitable for usage in scoring models and company rankings.
