COPE - ing with V.I.S. A : Integrated support from problem structuring through to alternative evaluation.
International conference on multiple criteria decision making. Hagen (DEU), 1995/06/19.
Work in the field of multiple criteria analysis has generally focused on evaluation procedures, taking as its starting point a well defined problem with specified alternatives and criteria.
However, in reality problems are rarely so well structured ; hence, in order to usefully support decision making in practice, multiple criteria analysts need to address the issue of problem structuring.
In this paper we describe a study which sought to integrate SODA (Strategic Options Development and Analysis), an approach to problem structuring which uses the COPE software for cognitive mapping, with multiple criteria evaluation based on a multi-attribute value function using V.I.S. A. The study took the form of a two day action research workshop to explore the strategic direction of the Supplies and Commercial Services Department of a large UK NHS Hospital Trust and to develop an action plan consistent with the agreed direction.
