Teaching language



To enable the students to cope with the main issues related to multicriteria decison-aid, including uncertainty aspects.

Learning outcomes and competences

Students should be able to: - Discuss the decision-aid problematic in problems with multiple criteria and uncertainty. - Use formal models to represent decision situations - Choose and apply systematic decision-aid methodologies, including using software tools and interaction with the decision maker. - Set up evaluation methodologies for public tenders.

Working method



- Multicriteria decision-aid. Concepts and terminology. The role of the Decision Maker. Preference modeling. - Multiattribute problems. Trade-off techniques, value functions and the French/European School. Setting up evaluation methodologies for public tenders and applying them. Sorting problems. - Data envelopment analysis (DEA). - Multiobjective problems. Techniques for generating nondominated alternatives. Interactive methods. - Uncertainty and Risk. Decision trees. Decision paradigms. Utility theory. Robust approaches. Methodologies based on multiple risk and opportunity indices. - Analysis of case studies.

Teaching methods and learning activities

The course will be organized around lectures, complemented by students’ autonomous work, which will be organized around group assignments around case studies and small problems. A strong interaction and participation of students, leading to a real active learning environment, will be sought in the lectures, by resorting to differentiated learning strategies. Evaluation will be based on the discussion of case studies and a final exam.
