Herner, Sauls; Snapper, Kurt J.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v29 n6 p289-96 Nov 1978
Proposes the use of the multiple criteria utility theory, a means of measuring satisfaction of predetermined evaluative criteria, quantifying their relative importance, and identifying and determining the best trade-offs among them to evaluate information systems. This method is demonstrated via the evaluation of a hypothetical selective dissemination of information (SDI) system. (Author)
