Repeating Data, Multi Choice Lists/Repeating Sections and Transmitting to SharePoint

Last Modified: 2015-03-05
Hi Experts,

I'm currently building a form, the intent is to collect capability requirements from various business units. Now there are approx. 35 potential capabilities, any given business unit may have a requirement for 5-10 capabilities. Capabilities also have dependent required fields (For example, how many hours will you need this capability for).  This form will submit to SharePoint where an analysis tool will look at the submitted data.

What I'm asking is rather than having a business unit submit 5-10 separate forms is there any Great Solution to have multi choice lists / repeating sections submit to SharePoint in a way does not require the data to be "cleaned" by an analysis engine.  Moreover, each capability should its own separate justification and approval / denial section for approvers. As I'm writing this, I guess what this boils down to is can you take a repeating group and have that create a separate "line item" in a SharePoint List without doing some pretty complex coding and developer-side manipulation of SharePoint views?
