Using qualitative data in multiple objective linear programming
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › Scientific › peer-review
In this paper we consider the problem of incorporating qualitative data in multiple objective linear programming. We show how the weight assessment technique in the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) can be utilized in multiple objective linear programming, when only qualitative (subjective, judgemental) data is available. Using the AHP, we first quantify the qualitative relationships between the row variables and the decision variables for our model. The row variables may have the status of an objective function or a constraint. Then we apply our visual and dynamic decision support system called VIG for solving the resulting multiple objective linear programming problem. We develop the approach and describe an application to strategic management.
