Introduction

Multicriteria analysis is a major area of research and applications in Operations Research and Management Science. We provide some useful links mainly about Analytical Hierarchy Process that is a common method in Decision Making. Other multicriteria methods include Goal programming and Electre method for ranking projects.

The Analytic Hierarchy Process in Decision Making

A book written by Prof Forman of George Washington University on Decision Making with multiple criteria, and the Analytic Hierarchy Process. Introduction to Expert Choice.

Goal programming: Introduction

This is a simple problem that can be used as an introduction to Goal Programming, provided by Prof. M. Trick.


Papers 

Ranking Methods

A collection of papers on the ranking methods by Tsoukias, Vincke, Bouyssou, et.al

Ranking projects using the ELECTRE method

This paper, written by John Buchanan from the Department of Management Systems of the University of Waikato, describes a real application of project selection using ELECTRE approach.

Minimax Goal Programming for Managerial Decision Making

This is an interesting article by ShiFang Yang and J B Yang referring to Goal Programming and multi-objective optimization.

Generalized Goal Programming: Polynomial Methods and Applications

This is an article by Emilio Carrizosa, from the University of Seville, that addresses a general Goal Programming problem with linear objectives and analyzes it from a geometrical and a computational viewpoint.


Student Problems and Course Notes

A Case Study on Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), by Michael A. Trick

Is there any organized way that one might think about determining the relative importance of the factors that influence a decision and then go about comparing alternative sites? One technique that is used is the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), which uses very simple calculations to try to put numerical values on factors and alternatives. This site includes a case study that presents this technique.


Societies and Software 

The International Society on Multiple Criteria Decision Making

A useful site with a number of resources and links on Multicriteria Decision Making

The European Society for Multiple Criteria Decision Making

Another useful site on the European Group, call for meetings, books, etc
