Multicriteria optimisation theory



Decision Making arises at all levels in firms. A firm may be described as a “complex system”, and we can make the following remarks ([Boldur, 1982]):
  • A complex system can be broken down into sub-systems according to the objectives of the first one (production sub-system, human resources management sub-system, etc.).

  • The methods of management must be arranged in order to propose solutions that fit the actual objectives.

  • It is necessary to mix different disciplines such as Operational Research, Management and Psychology in order to thoroughly understand and model a complex system.
