Estimating the Solution Sensitivity in Application of the Modified Morphological Analysis Method

  • I. O. Savchenko


The author proposes a technique to evaluate the sensitivity of a solution, obtained by the modified morphological analysis method, to variations in input data. A new way is proposed to find the probabilities of alternatives in the method. It is used to analyze the sensitivity of pairs of alternatives to rank switching when both initial probability estimates and values of correlation matrix vary.
