INTRODUCTION TO MULTICRITERIA TECHNIQUES

Jorge Azevedo Santos, Elsa Rosário Negas

Abstract

The systematic analysis and decision making in companies, particularly in an environment of risk, are now a major challenge, namely the complexity of each problem. Multicriteria techniques are applied a long time ago and had an important development and expanded its application areas. The simple decisions, which are considered routine, given the frequency they repeat themselves tend now to be reviewed and reanalyzed in order to be efficient. Sort a decision as efficient as we rank a decision when compared with other decisions in which the chosen factors have worse performance, or deciding factors, for example, the ratio between consumption and production is less attractive.
