Abstract

We present two simple computational procedures for sensitivity analysis of additive multiattribute value models that yield variations in attribute weights (scaling constants). For the first, or entropy-based, procedure, the point of departure is the concept of equal weights for all attributes. For the second, or least squares procedure, the point of departure is a set of arbitrary weights for attributes. In each procedure we either (a) calculate the "closest" set of weights that equates the multiattribute value for a pair of alternatives-that alternative whose overall value is optimal for the original attribute weights and any other specific nondominated alternative-or (b) calculate the "closest" set of weights required for the specific alternative to exceed the "optimal" alternative by a specified amount.
