A Method for Multihuman and Multi-Criteria Decision Making
In many multiple-criteria decision analysis problems, there are often several decision makers involved. To copy with this kind of problems, we propose a multiple aspiration levels method which is an extension of the reference point method by Wierzbicki. This interactive method can be used to derive satisfing solutions for the decision problems. It is implemented in a decision support and analysis system EXDASS and successfully applied to agricultural planning.
