Double Helix Value Functions, Ordinal/Cardinal Approach, Additive Utility Functions, Multiple Criteria, Decision Paradigm, Process, and Types (Z Theory I)
TLDR
The paper provides reliable and robust approaches for modeling the utility preferences of heterogeneous economic agents in macro and micro-economics and develops a unified/integrated approach for simultaneous assessment of nonlinear value and additive (multi-criteria) utility functions.
Composite indicator of German regional policy and its use for optimizing subsidies to regional labour markets
German structural policy is characterized by a composite indicator with three targets:(1) minimization of unemployment, (2) maximization of GDP, and (3) equalization of regional unemployment rates.
Multi-criteria Optimization of Regional Employment Policy: A Simulation Analysis for Germany
The distribution of European and national aid among 271 German labor market regions is considered as an optimization problem with three targets: (i) interregional equalization of unemployment rates;

Systematic decision process for intelligent decision making
TLDR
Systematic decision process (SDP) for solving Multiple Criteria Decision Making problems with application for manufacturing location selection has advantages in terms of simplicity and accuracy compared to existing methods such as Analytical Hierarchy Process.

Multiplicative Utility Functions
TLDR
Substantial conditions for a multiattribute utility function to be either multiplicative or additive are presented, and procedures for verifying the assumptions and assessing the resulting utility functions are given.
