Abstract This paper introduces the Best-Worst PROMETHEE method, which avoids the rank reversal problem of other PROMETHEE methods. We use this new technique to rank schools in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). We consider three separate outputs, provided by average student attainments in mathematics, language, and sciences. Our sample comprises 16,500 schools in 66 countries, and our results show significant differences between school performance both within and between ...

Abstract We propose a methodology to employ composite indicators for performance analysis of units of interest using and extending the family of Stochastic Multiattribute Acceptability Analysis. We start evaluating each unit by means of weighted sums of their elementary indicators in the whole set of admissible weights. For each unit, we compute the mean, μ, and the standard deviation, σ, of its evaluations. Clearly, the former has to be maximized, while the latter has to be minimized as it deno...

Six problem formulations exist in multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA): choice, sorting, ranking, description, elimination and design problems. MCDA methods are generally developed for choice or ranking problems. Recently, several methods have been adapted for sorting problems. However, they all assume that the criteria are independent, which is often not the case practically in real life. Therefore, this paper proposes a new sorting technique ANPSort, which can handle problems and challenges...

Abstract This case study offers a new insight into application of multiple-criteria decision-making methods (MCDM) to social identity issues in the context of talent management. This study used MCDM to help a high-tech company to identify potential talents in its sale and marketing team (n = 54). MCDM adjusted subjective information consisted of intangible organisational political issues into a transparent, objective benchmark. The transparency and consistency of this evaluation process reduced ...

Despite serious threats as to their soundness, the adoption of composite indicators is constantly growing alongside their popularity, especially when it comes to their adoption in policy-making exercises. This study presents a robust non-compensatory approach to construct composite indicators mainly based, at least with respect to the basic ideas, on the classic Borda scoring procedure. The non- compensatory indicators we are proposing can be seen as aggregation of ordinal non-compensatory prefe...

Abstract We propose a development of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) permitting to use the methodology also for decision problems with a very large number of alternatives and several criteria. While the application of the original AHP method involves many pairwise comparisons between considered objects, that can be alternatives with respect to considered criteria or criteria between them, our parsimonious proposal is composed of five steps: (i) direct evaluation of the objects at hand; (ii)...

Abstract In this short communication, the authors challenge the comparison experiments made by several authors regarding the performances of surrogate weights frequently used in additive multicriteria decision analysis. Statistical tests compare the rankings obtained, either with random ‘true weights’ from a given weight simplex, or with the considered surrogate techniques. It is shown that the performance ranking of the surrogate techniques entirely depends on the way the weight simplex is defi...
