Abstract:

This paper presents several techniques for assessing the utility of complex alternatives. It studies the problem where each alternative can be described by a series of attributes which are interdependent in various ways. A hierarchical structuring procedure for obtaining a relevant list of attributes is described and examples are given from Northeast Corridor transportation problems and from medical treatment problems.
