Abstract
We examine the AHP in the framework of Choquet integration and we propose an extension of the standard AHP aggregation scheme on the basis of the Shapley values associated with the criteria. In our model a measure of dominance inconsistency between criteria is defined in terms of the totally inconsistent matrix associated with the main pairwise comparison matrix of the AHP. The measure of dominance inconsistency is then used to construct a non-additive capacity whose associated Shapley values reduce to the standard AHP priority weights in the consistency case. In the general inconsistency case, however, the extended aggregation scheme based on the Shapley weighted mean tends to attenuate (resp. emphasize) the priority weights of the criteria with higher (resp. lower) average dominance inconsistency with respect to the other criteria.

In the context of multiple criteria decision analysis, we present the necessary and sufficient conditions to represent a cardinal preferential information by the Choquet integral w.r.t. a 2-additive capacity. These conditions are based on some complex cycles called cyclones.

In the context of Multiple criteria decision analysis, we present the necessary and sufficient conditions allowing to represent an ordinal preferential information provided by the decision maker by a Choquet integral w.r.t a 2-additive capacity. We provide also a characterization of this type of preferential information by a belief function which can be viewed as a capacity. These characterizations are based on three axioms, namely strict cycle-free preferences and some monotonicity conditions c...

We consider the framework of pairwise comparison matrices over abelian linearly ordered groups. We introduce the notion of o-proportionality that allows us to provide new characterizations of the consistency, efficient algorithms for checking the consistency and for building a consistent matrix. Moreover, we provide a new consistency index. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Aggregation is the process of combining several numerical values into a single representative value, and an aggregation function performs this operation. These functions arise wherever aggregating information is important: applied and pure mathematics (probability, statistics, decision theory, functional equations), operations research, computer science, and many applied fields (economics and finance, pattern recognition and image processing, data fusion, etc.). This is a comprehensive, rigorous...

In a multicriteria decision making context, a pairwise comparison matrix A = (aij) is a helpful tool to determine the weighted ranking on a set X of alternatives or criteria. The entry aij of the matrix can assume different meanings: aij can be a preference ratio (multiplicative case) or a preference difference (additive case) or aij belongs to [0, 1] and measures the distance from the indifference that is expressed by 0.5 (fuzzy case). For the multiplicative case, a consistency index for the ma...

Vendor selection is an evaluation process that is based on many criteria that uses inaccurate or uncertain data. But while the criteria are often numerous and the relationships between higher-level criteria and lower-level sub-criteria are complex, most conventional decision models cannot help us clarify the interrelationships among the sub-criteria. Our proposed integrated fuzzy multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) method addresses this issue within the context of the vendor selection probl...

We propose an extension of the Takagi-Sugeno-Kang (TSK) fuzzy inference system, using Choquet integration for aggregating the single rule outputs. In the new Choquet-TSK fuzzy inference system, the pairwise synergies between rules are encoded in a rule correlation matrix computed from the activation pattern of the rule base. The rule correlation matrix is then used to modulate the parameters of the Choquet integration scheme in order to compensate for the effect of rule synergies, which are pres...

We propose an identification method of fuzzy measures by diamond pairwise comparisons. Right and left side of the diamond means ordinal weights' comparison and up and down means interaction degrees. From the comparisons, we estimate a hierarchy diagram with interaction degrees and weights of evaluation items using the agglomerative hierarchical clustering method. From the diagram, to identify the fuzzy measure, ${\phi_s} conversion method is proposed.

In many real-life decision making (DM) situations, the available information is vague or imprecise. To adequately solve decision problems with vague or imprecise information, fuzzy set theory and aggregation operator theory have become powerful tools. In last three decades, DM theories and methods under fuzzy aggregation operator have been proposed and developed for effectively solving the DM problems and numerous applications have been reported in the literature. While various aggregation opera...

Abstract We introduce a general framework for the algebraic representation of the weighted mean in the case in which priorities and values refer to a common aggregation domain, for instance in hierarchical multicriteria decision models of the AHP type. The general framework proposed is based on the semifield structure of open interval domains and provides a natural algebraic description of weighted mean aggregation, including the essential mechanism of normalization which transforms priorities i...

The objective of this research is to establish consistency thresholds linked to alpha (α) levels for HDM's (Hierarchical Decision Model) judgment quantification method. Measuring consistency in order to control it is a crucial and inseparable part of any AHP/HDM experiment. The researchers on the subject recommend establishing thresholds that are statistically based on hypothesis testing, and are linked to the number of decision variables and a level. Such thresholds provide the means with which...

In the context of Pairwise Comparison Matrices (PCMs) defined over abelian linearly ordered group, -consistency and -transitivity represent a full coherence of the Decision Maker (DM) and the minimal logical requirement that DM's preferences should satisfy, respectively. Moreover, the -mean vector wm is proposed as weighting vector for the decision elements related to the PCM. In this paper, we investigate the effects of -inconsistency of a -transitive PCM on wm and, in order to ensure its relia...

We consider multiple criteria decision aiding in the case of interaction between criteria. In this case the usual weighted sum cannot be used to aggregate evaluations on different criteria and other value functions with a more complex formulation have to be considered. The Choquet integral is the most used technique and also the most widespread in the literature. However, the application of the Choquet integral presents two main problems being the necessity to determine the capacity, which is th...

Consistency and transitivity are important and leading research topics in the study of decision-making in terms of pairwise comparison matrices. In this paper, we search for conditions that, in case of inconsistency, guarantee ordinal compatibility between ordinal ranking (actual ranking) derived from a transitive matrix and cardinal rankings provided by the most usual priority vectors proposed in the scientific literature. We provide the notion of weak consistency; it is a condition weaker than...

We consider reciprocal matrices over an abelian linearly ordered group; in this way we provide a general framework including multiplicative, additive and fuzzy matrices. In a multi-criteria decision making context, a pairwise comparison matrix A = ( a i j ) is a reciprocal matrix that represents a useful tool for determining a weighting vector w for a set X of decision elements; but, when A is inconsistent, the weighting vector, usually proposed in literature, may provide a ranking on X that doe...

Multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) is considered as a complex decision-making (DM) tool involving both quantitative and qualitative factors. In recent years, several MCDM techniques and approaches have been suggested to choosing the optimal probable options. The purpose of this article is to systematically review the applications and methodologies of the MCDM techniques and approaches. This study reviewed a total of 393 articles published from 2000 to 2014 in more than 120 peer reviewed jo...
