Rank Order for a Rehabilitation Program Using Multiple Criteria

In this study we investigate an urban planning problem where an area is to be rehabilitated. The area is divided into several sub-areas any of which could be the starting point for the rehabilitation process. The ultimate goal is to find a rank order for the alternative sub-areas, which simultaneously solves the problem of where to start the rehabilitation. If all information are given on the ordinal scale, we could use e.g. the classical minimum violation principle to solve this problem. In this paper, we have generalized this approach to cover the cardinal scale and pairwise information.
