Weighting Methods and Associated Problems
Quite often in multicriterion analysis, a decision maker suddenly takes the view that one criterion is either more or less important than another; this may be for various reasons including personal preference (which may be reasonably objective or completely subjective). We shall call this measure of relative importance of criteria as seen by the decision maker, the weight. This chapter is devoted to examining the nature of weights, the methods which can be used to evaluate them and the consequences of how well or badly they are used.
