How are the Compliance Scores Evaluated for Compliance Violations in Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c

Enterprise Manager 12c has the possibility to enable compliance standards that a target should meet.  Generally a 'compliance standard' consists of a set of rules that it is desirable for a target to meet.  When a target meets all these set of rules (which make up the 'compliance standard') , it is said to be 100% compliant.   If some of the rules are met (but not all of them), then a compliance score needs to be calculated.  The compliance score shows how compliant (with the ideal set of standards) that target is.   The lower the score, the less compliant the target is.   The compliance score is calculated based on a number of factors such as the severity of the rule, and the importance of the rule.  These factors are determined at compliance rule/standard creation time.  If the out of the box oracle provided compliance standards are used, then these factors are set out of the box.  The following will demonstrate how the values are calculated:-
