Abstract

This paper proposes an integrated approach to determine attribute weights in the multiple attribute decision making (MADM) problems. The approach makes use of the subjective information provided by a decision maker and the objective information to form a two-objective programming model. Thus the resultant attribute weights and rankings of alternatives reflect both the subjective considerations of a decision maker (DM) and the objective information. An example is used to illustrate the applicability of the proposed approach.
