Multiple Criteria Decision Making

Prof. Dr. Jutta Geldermann (Georg-August-Universität Göttingen)

Many complex decisions require input from various disciplines and fields of expertise, leading to a multitude of relevant criteria. Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM, also often called Multi Criteria Decision Analysis - MCDA) can be defined as the study of methods and procedures by which concerns about multiple conflicting criteria can be formally incorporated into the management planning process. More broadly speaking, decision  analysis has a range of meanings; from a generic term describing the analyses that bring together and balance models of preferences and uncertainties in order to support decision makers to rather specific sets of techniques based upon decision trees, influence diagrams and multi-attribute utility.

We seek for theoretical papers, software implementations or case studies, which demonstrate the application of multiple criteria operations research methods.
