Point method has three common characteristics:
1. Compensable factors
2. Factor degrees numerically scaled and
3. Weights reflecting the relative importance of each factor
Identify compensable factors: Every role title is determined by the total point assigned to it. Now we are going to discuss about this factor and design the job structure as the question requirement.
The main four compensable factors are-
1. Skill: Under skill it measures some factor such as training, ability, and education. These factors are required for the job evaluation.
2. Effort: it refers to the use of physical or mental energy to do something; exertion.

4. Working condition: Under this factor there are several issues which are related with this particular job. It can be potential hazards may rise such as conflict at work, work load, discomfort etc.
Deciding the scale for the factor: There are basically four universal compensable factors based on which we will conduct our Job Evaluation. They are: Skill, Effort, Responsibility and Working condition.
Once the factors are determined, scales reflecting the different degrees within each factor are constructed. Most factor scales consist of four to eight degrees. Here we will be using factor scale of 5 degrees.
