The purpose of this introductory part is to present an overall view of what MCDA<lb>is today. In Section 1, I will attempt to bring answers to questions such as: what<lb>is it reasonable to expect from MCDA? Why decision aiding is more often multi-<lb>criteria than monocriterion? What are the main limitations to objectivity? Section<lb>2 will be devoted to(More)
This paper provides the reader with a presentation of preference modelling fundamental notions as well as some recent results in this field. Preference modelling is an inevitable step in a variety of fields: economy, sociology, psychology, mathematical programming, even medicine, archaeology, and obviously decision analysis. Our notation and some basic(More)
This paper proposes a critical analysis of the “Academic Ranking of World Universities”, published every year by the Institute of Higher Education of the Jiao Tong University in Shanghai and more commonly known as the Shanghai ranking. After having recalled how the ranking is built, we first discuss the relevance of the criteria and then analyze the(More)

This paper is devoted to the study of techniques allowing to rank order the elements of a finite set on the basis of a non-necessarily complete or transitive binary relation. In the area of MCDM, such a problem occurs with Outranking Methods. We review a number of theoretical results concerning this problem and show how they may be useful in order to guide(More)
This is a rather unusual book on decisionmaking written by a group of scholars from 9 Belgium and France. This is neither a monograph (that is, a research compendium) nor a 11 tutorial volume. It is much more, a long discussion on the theoretical and practical aspects 13 of decision sciences, with a view to emphasize two points: formal methods are needed to(More)
De®nitions are proposed for the concepts of robustness and neutrality of a decision-aid method. They are illustrated on the problem of aggregating preferences into an outranking relation in the presence of an importance relation on the criteria. We show that the concepts allow the analyst to better understand how the methods are grounded and provide him(More)
We recently developed a new multicriteria classification method called PROAFTN to help medical diagnosis. The aim of this paper is to present the application of the proposed method for the diagnosis of acute leukemia (AL). The implementation of PROAFTN was carried out on cytological data of 108 cases of AL, using the classification rules of French, American(More)
