A Time-Sharing Computer Program for the Solution of the Multiple Criteria Problem

Published Online:https://doi.org/10.1287/mnsc.19.12.1379

This note presents a description of a time-sharing computer program written to implement a man-machine interactive algorithm for the solution of the multiple criteria problem. The interactive algorithm was suggested in a recent paper by Geoffrion, “Vector Maximal Decomposition Programming,” Working Paper No. 164, Western Management Science Institute, University of California, Los Angeles, September 1970. A unique feature of this program is the man-machine dialog which obtains information from the decision-maker through a series of simple, ordinal comparisons.
