Graphical Interpretation of Goal Programming Computer Solution of Goal Programming Problems with QM for Windows and Excel The Analytical Hierarchy Process Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Overview Study of problems with several criteria, multiple criteria, instead of a single objective when making a decision. Two techniques discussed: goal programming, and the analytical hierarchy process. Goal programming is a variation of linear programming considering more than one objective (goals) in the objective function. The analytical hierarchy process develops a score for each decision alternative based on comparisons of each under different criteria reflecting the decision makers preferences. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Model Formulation (1 of 2)
Goal Programming Model Formulation (1 of 2) Beaver Creek Pottery Company Example: Maximize Z = \$40x1 + 50x2 subject to: 1x1 + 2x2  40 hours of labor 4x2 + 3x2  120 pounds of clay x1, x2  0 Where: x1 = number of bowls produced x2 = number of mugs produced Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Model Formulation (2 of 2)
Goal Programming Model Formulation (2 of 2) Adding objectives (goals) in order of importance, the company: Does not want to use fewer than 40 hours of labor per day. Would like to achieve a satisfactory profit level of \$1,600 per day. Prefers not to keep more than 120 pounds of clay on hand each day. Would like to minimize the amount of overtime. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Goal Constraint Requirements
Goal Programming Goal Constraint Requirements All goal constraints are equalities that include deviational variables d- and d+. A positive deviational variable (d+) is the amount by which a goal level is exceeded. A negative deviation variable (d-) is the amount by which a goal level is underachieved. At least one or both deviational variables in a goal constraint must equal zero. The objective function in a goal programming model seeks to minimize the deviation from goals in the order of the goal priorities. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Analytical Hierarchy Process Overview
AHP is a method for ranking several decision alternatives and selecting the best one when the decision maker has multiple objectives, or criteria, on which to base the decision. The decision maker makes a decision based on how the alternatives compare according to several criteria. The decision maker will select the alternative that best meets his or her decision criteria. AHP is a process for developing a numerical score to rank each decision alternative based on how well the alternative meets the decision maker’s criteria. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Analytical Hierarchy Process Example Problem Statement
Southcorp Development Company shopping mall site selection. Three potential sites: Atlanta Birmingham Charlotte. Criteria for site comparisons: Customer market base. Income level Infrastructure Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Analytical Hierarchy Process Hierarchy Structure
Top of the hierarchy: the objective (select the best site). Second level: how the four criteria contribute to the objective. Third level: how each of the three alternatives contributes to each of the four criteria. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Analytical Hierarchy Process General Mathematical Process
Mathematically determine preferences for each site for each criteria. Mathematically determine preferences for criteria (rank order of importance). Combine these two sets of preferences to mathematically derive a score for each site. Select the site with the highest score. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Analytical Hierarchy Process Pair-wise Comparisons
In a pair-wise comparison, two alternatives are compared according to a criterion and one is preferred. A preference scale assigns numerical values to different levels of performance. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Analytical Hierarchy Process Summary of Mathematical Steps
Develop a pair-wise comparison matrix for each decision alternative for each criteria. Synthetization Sum the values of each column of the pair-wise comparison matrices. Divide each value in each column by the corresponding column sum. Average the values in each row of the normalized matrices. Combine the vectors of preferences for each criterion. Develop a pair-wise comparison matrix for the criteria. Compute the normalized matrix. Develop the preference vector. Compute an overall score for each decision alternative Rank the decision alternatives. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Scoring Model Overview
Each decision alternative graded in terms of how well it satisfies the criterion according to following formula: Si = gijwj where: wj = a weight between 0 and 1.00 assigned to criteria j; important, 0 unimportant; sum of total weights equals one. gij = a grade between 0 and 100 indicating how well alternative i satisfies criteria j; 100 indicates high satisfaction, 0 low satisfaction. Chapter 14 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Scoring Model Example Problem
Mall selection with four alternatives and five criteria: S1 = (.30)(40) + (.25)(75) + (.25)(60) + (.10)(90) + (.10)(80) = 62.75 S2 = (.30)(60) + (.25)(80) + (.25)(90) + (.10)(100) + (.10)(30) = 73.50 S3 = (.30)(90) + (.25)(65) + (.25)(79) + (.10)(80) + (.10)(50) = 76.00 S4 = (.30)(60) + (.25)(90) + (.25)(85) + (.10)(90) + (.10)(70) = 77.75 Mall 4 preferred because of highest score, followed by malls 3, 2, 1.

Public relations firm survey interviewer staffing requirements determination. One person can conduct 80 telephone interviews or 40 personal interviews per day. \$50/ day for telephone interviewer; \$70 for personal interviewer. Goals (in priority order): At least 3,000 total interviews. Interviewer conducts only one type of interview each day. Maintain daily budget of \$2,500. At least 1,000 interviews should be by telephone. Formulate a goal programming model to determine number of interviewers to hire in order to satisfy the goals, and then solve the problem.
