Effective Weighting of Criteria

This White Paper looks at the issues surrounding weighting, what weighting is for, and some methods that can be used to create weights that will increase the likelihood of yielding the best decision.

The process of weighting involves emphasising some criteria more than others.

The output of the weighting process is a set of criteria where each criterion has a different impact on the result.

What is it that makes one factor more important to a decision than another?

When trying to determine weight, how should the decider go about choosing which criteria are more important?

There are many methods available, each with its pros and cons.

Topics Include
