The R initiative

The R initiative of Decision Deck proposes to use the R statistical environment, coupled with the MCDA package, to support all the steps of the MCDA process.

The MCDA package for R contains functions which can be useful to support the analyst in this complex process, and which should facilitate his dialoge with the decision maker(s).
