Abstract

As time goes by, every historic object dilapidates and wears out. As the result, the values that it used to represent become obliterated and its effete on the public is weakened. Conservation and restoration of art works aim at preserving the extant matter and, if possible, at bringing the antiques to their former glory in historical value; the more so that the historical value of the objects also increases with time. Conservators’ work, independently of their special fields of interest, should be preceded by research whose goal is the determination of the guidelines for the conservation efforts and the selection of the best methods of action in interdependence and feedback among dimensions and criteria. A thorough analysis determines several possibility methods of action, emphasizing various groups of values. In this study, a hybrid Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) model based on DNP (DEMATEL-based ANP) is used to assess the historical objects relative values viewed by different groups of experts in inter-relationship problem of real world. The procedures provide a reference guide of improvement directions and efficient art work reservation of historical objects for achieving the aspiration levels.
