diviz is a software for designing, executing and sharing Multicriteria Decision Aid (MCDA) methods, algorithms and experiments.

The goals of diviz are:

  • to help researchers to construct algorithmic MCDA workflows ( = methods) from elementary MCDA components;
  • to help teachers to present MCDA methods and let the students experiment their own creations;
  • to help to easily compare results of different methods;
  • to allow to easily add new elementary MCDA components;
  • to avoid heavy calculations on your local computer by executing the methods on distant servers;
  • to ease the dissemination of new MCDA algorithms, methods and experiments.

The main properties of diviz are:

  • all available MCDA components in diviz are (currently) (opensource) web services (XMCDA web services);
  • the history of all the past executions is available (ideal for parameter tuning);
  • use of XMCDA to make elementary components interoperable;
  • use of XMCDA and XSL (eXtensible Stylesheet Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for a standardised visualisation of input and output data.

diviz is an initiative within the Decision Deck project.

It is open-source, released under the CeCILL license; the source code is hosted on its gitlab project’s page
