Chapter 9 - Multicriteria Decision Making
Overview Study of problems with several criteria, multiple criteria, instead of a single objective when making a decision. Three techniques discussed: goal programming, the analytical hierarchy process and scoring models. 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. Scoring models are based on a relatively simple weighted scoring technique. Chapter 9 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Goal Programming Example Problem Data (1 of 2) Beaver Creek Pottery Company Example: Maximize Z = \$40x1 + 50x2 subject to: 1x1 + 2x2  40 hours of labor 4x1 + 3x2  120 pounds of clay x1, x2  0 Where: x1 = number of bowls produced x2 = number of mugs produced Chapter 9 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Chapter 9 - Multicriteria Decision Making
Goal Programming Example Problem Data (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 9 - Multicriteria Decision Making

Chapter 9 - Multicriteria Decision Making
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 the respective goals in the order of the goal priorities. Chapter 9 - 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 9 - Multicriteria Decision Making
