Ordinal criteria in stochastic multicriteria acceptability analysis (SMAA)

  title={Ordinal criteria in stochastic multicriteria acceptability analysis (SMAA)},
  author={Risto Lahdelma and Kaisa Miettinen and Pekka Salminen},
  journal={European Journal of Operational Research},
We suggest a method for providing descriptive information about the acceptability of decision alternatives in discrete co-operative group decision-making problems. The new SMAA-O method is a variant of the stochastic multicriteria acceptability analysis (SMAA). SMAA-O is designed for problems where criteria information for some or all criteria is ordinal; that is, experts (or decision-makers) have ranked the alternatives according to each (ordinal) criterion. Considerable savings can be… CONTINUE READING
