More Cases of Ranking Abnormalities when some MCDM Methods are used

  • Evangelos Triantaphyllou
Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 44)


Chapter 9 presented an evaluation of the AHP, the revised AHP, the WPM, and the TOPSIS methods in terms of two evaluative criteria. Another evaluation was presented in Chapter 10 for the AHP and the revised AHP methods. The issue of evaluating MCDM methods is a controversial one in the decision analysis / decision making communities. This chapter is partially based on some recent developments that are presented in [Triantaphyllou, 2000] and are related to the evaluation of MCDM methods. The present chapter continues on the same subject and presents some new ranking abnormalities when the AHP and some of its variants are used.
