MOSHKOVICH, Helen M.; GOMES, Luiz Flávio Autran Monteiro; MECHITOV, Alexander I.  and  RANGEL, Luís Alberto Duncan. Influence of models and scales on the ranking of multiattribute alternatives. Pesqui. Oper. [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.3, pp.523-542.  Epub Nov 30, 2012. ISSN 0101-7438.

This paper presents an application of three multiple criteria methods to determining rank of residential real estate options. Methods SAW and TODIM are based on eliciting the decision maker's preferences (weights and values) directly in a quantitative form while using linear (SAW) and non-linear (TODIM) aggregation functions for alternatives' evaluation. ZAPROS seeks and uses preferences in an ordinal form as an indirect comparison of trade-offs between criteria. Advantages and disadvantages of different approaches are discussed.

Keywords : Simple Additive Weighting; Verbal Decision Analysis; Multicriteria Decision Aiding.
