ACUTA and PROMETHEE: comparing rankings

Short description

This workflow compares the ranking obtained by the ACUTA algorithm with the one obtained with the PROMETHEE method, on the classical “Thierry’s sports car choice” example [BouyssouEtAl2000], based on the example for the URPDM2010 conference in Coimbra, Portugal. It extends this example for the special issue of a journal linked to the conference.

Detailed description

This workflow contains 3 parts:

  • the upper area represents the use of the PROMETHEE method to obtain a ranking of the alternatives;
  • The lower area represents the disaggregation technique ACUTA [BousEtAl2010] to compute partial value functions on basis of a ranking given as an input;
  • the right part compares the output of the two techniques.

This example is discussed in further details in [BigaretMeyer2011].
