IRIS is an interactive method that aim at sorting alternatives into ordered classes. The assignment of alternatives to classes corresponds to Electre Tri. The specificity of the IRIS method is that the DM does not have to specify the weights of criteria, but intead provides assignment examples, i.e., typical elements of the classes.
Informations about the original implementation of IRIS for Windows can be found here.
Rubis is a decision aid method for tackling the choice problem in the context of multiple criteria decision analysis (1).
Its genuine purpose is to help a decision maker to determine a single best decision alternative. Methodologically we focus on pairwise comparisons of these alternatives which lead to the concept of bipolar-valued outranking digraph (2). The work is centred around a set of five pragmatic principles which are required in the context of a progressive decision aiding methodology (3). Learn more.
Here is an example of an outranking digraph with best (yellow) and worst (blue) choices (Learn more):
The VIP (Variable Interdependent Parameters) Analysis software has been built to support the selection of the most preferred alternative among a list, considering the impacts of each alternative on multiple evaluation criteria. It is based on an additive aggregation model (value function), accepting imprecise information on the value of the scaling coefficients (a.k.a. scaling constants, which indirectly reflect the relative importance of the each criterion).
Rather than precise values, the scaling coefficients are considered Variable Interdependent Parameters subject to a set of constraints (e.g. bounds, order relations, or any linear constraints). This amounts to consider multiple acceptable combinations of values for these parameters, which is particularly relevant in spite of the simplicity of the model. Indeed, fixing precise values for the scaling constants is often difficult because these values reflect the judgments of the decision makers, which may evolve through time and may be hard to elicit in a precise way. The number of (arbitrary) options in the process of building the criteria plus the possibility of divergence among several decision makers may further hinder the requirement of precise numerical figures.
The VIP Analysis software offers its users an easy to use tool to analyze a choice problem using multiple approaches at several levels of detail, when imprecise information is accepted. It computes the best and worst overall value that each alternative may attain (given the multiple acceptable inputs), the pairwise confrontation table (differences of global value between pairs of alternatives) - which allows to discover dominated or quasi-dominated alternatives -, as well as the maximum loss of opportunity associated with choosing each alternative, plus the domain where each alternative is optimal or quasi-optimal (if the problem dimension allows it).
