Mult-Criteria Decsn Making

One of the most important, exciting and influential topics in Industrial and Systems Engineering has emerged as the field of Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM). Both from a theoretical and practical perspective, MCDM influences all aspects of engineering design and analysis. We will survey and examine in some detail the following issues, topics and algorithmic techniques of MCDM: Values, Objectives, Attributes and Criteria; Elementary Decision Analysis/ Decision Trees; Deterministic and Expected Utility Theory; Vector Optimization Theory; Multi-Attribute Value Systems; Attribute Ranking Methods; Solution Generating Methods; Global Preference Methods; Goal Programming Methods; Interactive Trade-Off Methods; and Group Decision Making Methods.
