Multiple Criteria Decision Making

John Buchanan - Management Systems

Everyone is interested in making good decisions. More precisely, decision makers are interested in making decisions that have good outcomes. Will good outcomes be more "likely" if a good decision making process is used? What is a good decision making process?

These are some of the questions that quickly appear when one considers a study of decision making. My research focuses on individual decision making and seeks to compare prescriptive models (how people should make decisions) with descriptive models (how people do make decisions). I have also undertaken considerable experimental work to evaluate the performance of interactive MCDM solution methods.
