Publisher Summary This chapter describes the classification of multiobjective programming methods. The basis for the classification is the role for the analyst in the planning process that is implied when a technique is used. In the chapter, the applicability of the methods in various decision making contexts is discussed, computational requirements are assessed, and the evaluation of the methods is considered. The characteristics of the decision-making process that may be used to categorize multiobjective programming methods are the information flows in the process and the decision-making context. The decision-making context referred to above is the specific problem setting for the analysis. The two contexts may be considered are multiobjective problems and multiple-decision-maker (conflict resolution) problems. In the first case of multiobjective decision-making, the analytical goal is a best-compromise solution, which is found through the resolution of the decision maker's internal conflicts. In the second case, a particular decision maker must resolve internal conflicts among objectives and be aware of conflicts with other decision makers.
