“Dimension direction” means the evaluation direction in decision making problem. Decision-making sometimes should consider multi-criteria, multi-period and multi-place. The criteria, period and place are different dimension direction for making decision. In special situation, decision maker must think over more than three dimension directions in the decision making problem. However, past research literatures at most consider two dimension directions. The goal of this research is to develop the execution process to deal with the decision making problem under multi dimension direction. Proposed execution process can flexibly apply in various kinds of multi dimension direction problem. A numerical example will be implemented. Some analysis and comparison will be executed. Conclusion and future research will be discussed as ending.
