Abstract

The COmplex PRoportional ASsessment (COPRAS) method was introduced by Zavadskas, Kaklauskas, and Sarka in 1994 (Podvezko in Inz Ekon-Eng Econ 22:134–146, 2011 [84]; Zagorskas et al. in Ekologija 53:55–63, 2007 [85]; Zavadskas et al. in Balt J Road Bridge Eng 2:193–203, 2007 [86]; Zavadskas et al. in J Civ Eng Manag 14:85–93, 2008 [87]). This method is used to assess the maximizing and minimizing index values, and the effect of maximizing and minimizing indexes of attributes on the results assessment is considered separately. The COPRAS method is applied in some areas such as risk assessment (Alinezhad et al. in J Money Econ 10:87–121, 2015 [88]; Valipour et al. in J Civ Eng Manag 23:524–532, 2017 [89]), investment project selection (Popovic et al. in Serb J Manag 7:257–269, 2012 [90]), and material selection (Xia et al. in Appl Mech Mater 707:505–508, 2015 [91]).
