Modelling with MCDSS: what about ethics?

Author: Jelassi, Tawfik ; Sinclair-Desgagné, BernardINSEAD Area: Technology and Operations Management Series: Working Paper ; 90/08/TM/EPS Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 1990.Language: EnglishDescription: 12 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: Modelling the preferences of a decision maker requires that: all the criteria and attributes relevant for making a choice be thoroughly considered; available alternatives be listed and ranked with respect to each criterion; and the various rankings be combined to yield a global evaluation of the alternatives. The decision maker, even when he/she uses sophisticated decision aids, is often found to have difficulty with these requirements. In this paper it is argued that the decision maker's hesitation might be due to a lack of understanding of the role of each criterion should play in the global judgement. A careful look at ethics -as the discipline that considers the justifications people offer for the principle and values they hold- in conjunction with the development and usage of multiple criteria decision support systems (MCDSS)- would then help enlightening the decision maker
