This study attempts to use multicriteria decision aiding (MCDA) tools to analyse the innovation capacity of 32 regions in Mexico. In today’s competitive world, innovation in science and technology is the key to the growth and productivity of the regions. Understanding the current state of innovation capacity and identifying the factors that influen...

The aim of this paper is to solve an agricultural technology packages selection problem by considering multiple dimensions which influence a maize producer’s preferences. The decision-making process is aided by a new multicriteria method for eliciting scale constants in additive models: flexible and interactive tradeoff (FITradeoff). This method wo...

This article presents the process to build a regional employability indicator based on the ordered weighted average operator. The objective is to generate an indicator that can include different weighting vectors to analyze the information based on an analysis made from States to Regions to Nation. The main advantage of doing this type of indicator...

Article
Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) is a complex process. It aims to support decision makers in making their decisions more effective and consistent. MCDM provides a useful and successful alternative for handling three main types of MCDM problems, namely, choosing, ranking and sorting. The first two are the most common problems studied but the th...
Article
The objective of the paper is to present a multiple criteria hierarchical process (MCHP) approach for portfolio selection in a stock exchange. One of the problems that investors usually face is which stock should be included in the portfolio. This paper helps investors answer that question, and the paper presents an MCHP approach using different cr...

The present paper has the main aim to evaluate the competitive level of the regions of Mexico based on their performance on 10 main factors from 100 indicators. The methodology is based on the Multiple Criteria Hierarchy Process (MCHP) capable of analyzing the performance of a subset and the comprehensive indicators, and how they impact the competi...
Article
Group decision making (GDM) is a very important process to reach a collective solution with a certain level of consensus. When a collective solution is generated by the aggregation of individual solutions, the group members can feel some disagreements with the collective solution. The GDM process proposed in this paper is a framework that supports...
Chapter
A relevant approach to increase success on products or services is based on customer oriented product design. In this case, the product will support expected requirements while meeting specific characteristic of attributes of particular type of products. Developing new products is an essential ability to compete in markets where important factors a...
Conference Paper
Group decision-making processes have a wide application in different activities in organizations. This process requires the coordination of individual activities as well a series of procedures and aggregation methods that incorporate individual member’s activities to reach a high-quality group decision. This paper presents a model for launching a n...
Conference Paper
The consumer satisfaction is an interesting research field for new products design. Indirect procedure is an important approach to extract consumer preference and construct preferential model. This paper presents a method to elicit parameters indirectly by using holistic information provided by the consumer through a ranking reference set of produc...
Chapter
The problem of ranking a set of technology packages that are best suited for growing crops, is developed with a multicriteria group decision model. The group decision model is based on ELECTRE GD, a group decision method for multicriteria ranking problems, strongly based on ELECTRE III, developed to work on those cases where there is great divergen...
Chapter
The paper describes a procedure constructed with a Genetic Algorithm (GA) to derive the intercriteria parameters for the outranking method ELECTRE III. The present paper deals with the total order problem as reference set from expert. An aggregation/disaggregation approach is implemented to derive intercriteria parameters from reference set. The in...

The selection of a technological packages for agriculture is a complex task. Since selecting the best suited for a particular farm, given the rapid development of technology and the many combinations available, is a difficult problem for the decision maker (DM). This paper deals the selection problem of technological packages identifying criteria a...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we present an implemented, web-based multicriteria group decision support system for solving multicriteria ranking problems by a collaborative group of decision-makers in sequential or parallel coordination mode and in a distributed and asynchronous environment. This system employs an order-based consensus model for collaborative gro...

Credit rating is an assessment performed by lenders or financial institutions to determine a person’s creditworthiness based on the proposed terms of the loan. Frequently, these institutions use rating models to obtain estimates for the probabilities of default for their clients (companies, organizations, government, and individuals) and to assess...

In this paper, we evaluate potential location alternatives to identify a suitable commercial location to install a franchise coffee shop, using the franchise´s requirements as decision criteria. The decision process is stated as a group multicriteria ranking problem (since there are multiple members or decision makers). We use a group decision-aidi...
Article
At present, distributed group decision-making processes are common practice in networked and information-based organisations. Consequently, an adequate coordination of the activities in a multicriteria group decision process is required to ensure the success of these complicated processes. The coordination modes represent different forms of collabo...

This work is based on a disaggregation approach for the ELECTRE III method for the group decision-making. We provide a procedure in which the group is supported for modifying the parameters of outranking methods in an iterative and interactive process. In this work, we provide an application of the procedure through evaluating eight municipal distr...
Article
In this paper, we propose an index that measures the agreement level between an individual opinion and a collective opinion when both are expressed by rankings of a set of alternatives. This index constitutes an interesting weighted version of the well-known Kendall's ranks correlation index. The originality of the proposed index arises from the fa...

This work is based on a disaggregation approach for the ELECTRE III method for group decision-making. We propose an outranking method based on inferring inter-criteria parameters in the stage of the definition of parameters to support Decision Makers (DM) in a group decision-making approach. We provide a procedure in which the group is supported to...
