Multi-Objective Decision Making - overview
Efficient and consistent decision making is a hard challenge. The decision maker needs to account for multiple, often conflicting objectives, resulting in a very large number of options to consider. By using Pareto optimization we reduce the number of alternatives to an optimal set known as the Pareto Frontier. Provided with this set, users aspire to understand the conflicts between the objectives, explore the available tradeoffs and see the value of a selected solution. To meet this end, we offer smart visualization and analytical recommendation mechanism that altogether enable an easy and intuitive exploration of the Frontier. This approach increases the transparency of the selection process when multiple parties need to reach a consensus, and enables better evaluation of alternatives.
