Problems with Importance-Ordered Criteria
An analysis presented in (Podinovskii, 1991) shows that the concept of criteria importance is a representation of a special kind of regularity of preference structures. This regularity provides increase or stability of preferences under specific ratio of increments of those components of vector estimates which correspond to the criteria compared by importance (with all other components fixed). We present here some basic results of the theory of symmetrical importance — which is one of the most developed sections of the general theory — and discuss possibilities of its applications.
