NORMALIZATION PROCEDURES ON MULTICRITERIA DECISION MAKING - An Example on Environmental Problems

Ethel Mokotoff, Estefanía García-Vázquez, Joaquín Pérez Navarro

Abstract

In Multicriteria Decision Making, a normalization procedure is required to conduct the aggregation process. Even though this methodology is widely applied in strategic decision support systems, scarce published papers detail this specific question. In this paper, we analyze the results of the influence of normalization procedures in the weight sum aggregation in Multicriteria Decision problems devoted to sustainable development.
