The paper considers the decision problem related to the reuse of an abandoned railway for the creation of a new infrastructure in the Monferrato Region (Northern Italy). The project represents an important opportunity for the economic survival of the area, contributing to valorise local resources and to promote cultural values. With the aim of addressing the design of the reuse plan, a multi-criteria evaluation based on the PROMETHEE method has been developed for the selection of the best functi...

In the preliminary design phase of a concrete highway bridge project, a critical question arises concerning the pre-selection of the most suitable bridge type. The answer is related not only to cost-effectiveness, but also to the satisfaction of a number of conflicting compliance criteria. Therefore, the development of a reliable decision support system with respect to that kind of selection is an important research objective. In the context of this study, all contemporary construction capabilit...

Sustainability is a major concern and decisions have to be made based on the triple bottom line while simultaneously evaluating the economic, social and environmental impacts. In this context, decisions generally have a planning horizon of several years or even decades and consequently need to be evaluated in the short, medium and long term under uncertainty. This paper intends to tackle this complexity and proposes a multi-period generalisation of PROMETHEE under uncertainty, named PROMETHEE-MP...
Many real-life decision problems are time-dependant; they cannot be effectively addressed with the classic multi-criteria decision aid methodology which deals with 'static' problems. In fact, comparing time-dependant alternatives (possible decisions, actions …) may require several assessments spaced in time. If the aim is to rank these alternatives by aggregating their periodic assessments, one would wonder how to weigh these assessments with respect to the time scale. This paper introduces a no...
In this paper, a new approach for solving fuzzy goal programming problems is introduced. The coefficients and the aspiration level of each fuzzy goal are considered either trapezoidal or triangular fuzzy numbers. Four dominance criteria (dominance possibility, strict dominance possibility, dominance necessity, and strict dominance necessity) are utilised for comparing the fuzzy numbers. The proposed approach is based on merging the maxmin approach and the lexicographic approach in a two-phase pr...
Multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) consists in choosing, ranking or sorting alternatives belonging to a finite set and evaluated according to several and usually conflicting criteria. Criteria weights play a crucial role in the decision process since they express the importance of the considered criteria as seen by the decision maker (DM). However, these weight values assigned directly by the DM are subjective and little reliable as they are based only on his experience, his intuition and his...
Spanish public hospitals funding depends on the classification of attended pathologies. These pathologies are grouped thanks to a patient classification system (PCS) into the so-called diagnostic related groups (DRGs). International Classification of Diseases (ICD) coding systems generate various DRGs. Based on the ICD-9, the all patients diagnostic related groups (AP-DRGs) were used. In January 2016, Spain adopted ICD-10. One of the casualties from this transition was the AP-DRG PCS which did n...

This study focuses on the definition of risk management tools for the dialysis service due to the importance of the healthcare organisation assessment in maintaining the system performance. The latter can serve a high quality service within hospitals with patient healthy treatment and satisfaction.
