Multi-Criteria Evaluation Results

MakeItRational Software – Multi-Criteria Evaluation Results


Criteria Weights

Pie chart which presents local weights of criteria from the same level of hierarchy (criteria under the common “parent”).  Local weights are calculated from evaluator’s judgments that have usually form of pairwise comparisons. Local weights of criteria from the same hierarchy level sum up to 1 (100%).

Partial Ranking of Alternatives – Bottom Criterion

Column chart which presents result of alternatives evaluation in the context of bottom-criterion (criterion from the bottom of hierarchy). Bottom-criteria are the context for alternatives evaluation so this ranking contains information calculated directly from evaluator’s judgments. Judgments usually have the form of direct rates.

Alternatives Comparison on Radar Chart

Chart integrates multiple alternatives rankings. Each radar axis contains information from the other partial ranking. It is an auxiliary graph that allows to view, print or present single chart instead of multiple. Radar chart is not created when the number of subcriteria is less than 3 because the radar chart with two axes would be unreadable.

Aggregated Ranking of Alternatives – Higher-Level Criterion

Stacked column chart which presents aggregated information on alternatives’ utilities in the context of higher-level criterion (criterion that is a parent for other criteria). Chart is based on information on subcriteria weights and partial utilities of alternatives.
