The SOLVER of Volvox Multicriterion Table
VOLVOX is a consortium composed of six leading canadian firms in the field of information technology and decision making aid. The CGI group acts as manager in this project whose goal is to develop, in collaboration with several partners especially from university milieu, and to commercialize systems of decision making aid DSS in the environmental field. In addition to developing DSS responding to specific needs, the consortium intends to focus on a technological generic platform (a generic shell) VOLVOX. This shell contains several elements, one of which is the construction of a multicriterion table. The VOLVOX multicriterion table allows ordinal or cardinal, punctual or distributional evaluations. The SOLVER (multicriterion aggregation procedure) is based on the outranking synthesis approach and lies within the scope of ranking problematic. It appeals to the pseudocriteria and incomparability notions. It can also act as a negotiation and group consensus support. The purpose of this paper is to present succinctly the objectives of the VOLVOX research center as well as the main caracteristics of the solver.
