Multicriteria Decision-Making On The Placement Of Social Infrastructure Objects


  • O. Dorokhov

    (of Simon Kuznets Kharkiv National University of Economics)


The main components of social infrastructure in terms of rational location of objects providing its functioning are described. The socioeconomic significance and the importance of appropriate decision-making tasks is grounded. Successful solution to the problem under unclear multicriterial conditions is found to require appropriate methodological, algorithmic and information support. Analysis is conducted as regards approaches to decision-making on the location of social facilities in Ukraine which are often intuitive and based solely on qualifications of persons who make decisions. As a result of analysis of corresponding software tools and techniques for support of decision-making on the location of infrastructure, such tools as Expert Choice, Admiral, and GIS product of Google Map were chosen. A solution to the problem of the location of social infrastructure objects was given with a childcare object as an example. An approach of general nature is proposed which can be used for finding locations for commercial, industrial, social and other objects.
