Multiple Criteria Decision Support Systems in Production Planning: A Micro Experience

Conference paper
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 56)


The implementation of the modified two person zero-sum game approach, contracting cone method and augmented Tchebycheff method on a production planning problem in a manufacturing organization is explained. Karpak, Kuruuzum (1987) compared the modified two person zero-sum game approach with the contracting cone method on a mainframe. In this study we describe our experience on a microcomputer.
