A Decision Support System for Solving Multiple Criteria Optimization Problems
Filatovas, Ernestas; Kurasova, Olga
Informatics in Education, v10 n2 213-224 2011
In this paper, multiple criteria optimization has been investigated. A new decision support system (DSS) has been developed for interactive solving of multiple criteria optimization problems (MOPs). The weighted-sum (WS) approach is implemented to solve the MOPs. The MOPs are solved by selecting different weight coefficient values for the criteria and solving single-criterion optimization problems (SOPs). However, the WS approach does not guarantee either finding evenly distributed solutions of a Pareto front, or finding Pareto optimal solutions in non-convex regions. In order to solve the problems, some methods have been proposed. In this paper, an adaptive weighted-sum (AWS) approach has been used. We suggest presenting the solutions, obtained not only by the weighted-sum method, but also by the adaptive weighted-sum approach, to a decision maker (DM). Thus the decision making will be facilitated.
