The paper presents an approach to the development, improvement, and modification of multi-criteria methods that are used in the analysis of complex systems. This approach is based on the typical scheme of the multi-criteria decision-making method. Changes introduced to its stages allow the modification and improvement of the available methods, as well as development of new ones. The possibility of practical use of the proposed approach is illustrated by an example of the development of a new method whose efficiency is confirmed by respective calculations.
