Abstract:

An essential element in the use of outranking methods for ranking or selection problems arising in the acquisition process of military equipment is the interpretation of incomparabilities. We show how this was done in the PROMETHEE methods by the GAIA plane representation, which is implemented in the commercial software DECISION LAB 2000. We then discuss how the incomparability analysis can be fine-tuned, leading to a more detailed graphical representation. This was implemented in the MCDMTool developed at the Royal Military Academy in Brussels.
