SMAA-Classification - A New Method for Nominal Classification
2007 (English)Report (Other academic)
We have developed a multicriteria decision aiding method for nominal classification for situations where prefer-ence information is imprecise, uncertain or absent. Such situations may appear, for instance, when the decisionmaker is not sure about his or her preferences or when there are multiple decision makers who have difficulties inagreeing about their common preference. The new SMAA-Classification method extends Stochastic Multicrite-ria Acceptability Analysis (SMAA) methodology for classification problems. The method provides the decisionmaker with descriptive information in the form of acceptability index for each alternative to be classified intoeach predefined class. We test the new method with several applications.
