Description

This web service computes clusters of alternatives based on the following clustering typology: non-relational, relational, ordered, {p+,p-}-exclusive relational and {p+,p-}-exclusive ordered multi-criteria clustering.

Inputs

(For outputs, see below)

alternatives

Description:

A list of alternatives. Alternatives can be activated or deactivated via the <active> tag (true or false). By default (no <active> tag), alternatives are considered as active.

preferenceRelation

Description:

The preference relation between alternatives.

  • Tag: alternativesComparisons

Method Type

Description:

Indicates the type of clustering result to find: Non-relations (NR), Relationa (R), Ordered (O), Q-exclusive Relational (QR), Q-exclusive Ordered (QO).

GUI information:

  • Parameter values can be defined via the GUI or the XMCDA file, by default via GUI.

  • Name: Type

    Indicates the type of clustering.

    • Type: drop-down list
    • Possible values:
      • Non-relational (XMCDA label : NR) (default)
      • Relational (XMCDA label : R)
      • Ordered (XMCDA label : O)
      • Relational {p+,p-}-exclusive (XMCDA label : QR)
      • Ordered {p+,p-}-exclusive (XMCDA label : QO)
