This process can be carried out in different ways either just for employees’ supervisors or by different collectives related to the evaluated employee. In the latter case, 360-degree performance appraisal or integral performance appraisal, the different types of appraisers have different degree of knowledge about the employee. Furthermore, such knowledge is usually vague and subjective. Due to these facts, in the literature exists some performance appraisal models ,  that ﬂexible and improve the evaluation process. In this contribution is presented and developed a Web based evaluation system that support integral performance appraisal according to the previous models. I.

The evaluated indicators involved in a performance apprai- sal are usually subjective and vague, therefore difficult to assess quantitatively in a precise way, but it is more adequate to express the assessments in a qualitative way by means of linguistic terms . The use of fuzzy linguistic approach  for managing such uncertainty has obtained good results in different disciplines, among them “information retrieval” , “marketing” , “recommender systems” , , “education” , and “sensory evaluation” , . Former models evaluate employees according to just their supervisors’ opinions, however recently integral or 360-degree performance appraisal models are used where different types of appraisers such as supervisors, collaborators, customers, colleagues and employee himself. This type of models obtain a more general, objective and better assessment about the evaluated employee , , ....
