Multicriteria Decision Making Problems Using Variable Weights of Criteria Based on Alternative Preferences
AbstractIn this study, we consider multicriteria decision making problems with respect to variable domination structures. These structures are considered in relation to variable weights of criteria based on alternatives preferences. Such problems have many applications in logistics, strategic management, economics, and many decision making processes. For solving such problems, we define a technique based on simple additive weighting, technique for order of preference by similarity to ideal solution, and preference ranking organization method for enrichment evaluation (PROMETHEE) methods. Then, we utilize the PROMETHEE method for facility location selection.
