Towards qualitative approaches to multi-stage decision making

Régis Sabbadin, Hélène Fargier, Jérôme Lang
1998 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
In this paper we propose a generalisation to multi-stage decision making of Dubois and Prade's qualitative decision theory.  ...  Our framework is a qualitative, possibilistic counterpart to Markov decision processes, and the computation of an optimal policy is done in a way similar to dynamic programming.  ...  Apart from Dubois and Prade's possibilistic approach to one-stage decision making, some authors have considered more or less qualitative approaches to decision, either one-stage or multi-stage.  ...

A Hierarchical Multi-Attribute System Approach to Personnel Selection

Eva Jereb, Uros Rajkovic, Vladislav Rajkovic
2005 International Journal of Selection and Assessment  
In this paper, an approach to decision making in managing human resources that integrates multi-attribute decision making techniques with expert systems is described.  ...  The approach is based on the explicit articulation of qualitative decision knowledge which is represented by a tree of attributes and decision rules.  ...  Our modeling approach is based on qualitative decision models.  ...

Combinatorial Optimization Model for Group Decision-Making

Dilian Korsemov, Daniela Borissova, Ivan Mustakerov
2018 Cybernetics and Information Technologies  
The obtained results show the practical applicability of the proposed combinatorial optimization model for group decision-making.  ...  In the article a combinatorial optimization model for group decision-making problem is proposed. The described model relies on extended simple additive weighting model.  ...  An approach recognized as a suitable tool for group decision making problems is Multi-Attribute Decision Making (MADM).  ...
