• Important decisions are often taken by groups of decision makers who need to make choices among several alternatives, based on an appraisal of how the alternatives are likely to perform with regard to multiple objectives. Such decision processes can be supported by the methods of multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) which help generate decision recommendations and offer process benefits in terms of enhanced decision quality, improved communication, and enhanced commitment to decision implementation. In this chapter, we outline widely used MCDA methods and consider their uses in group decision making. We also review selected case studies and offer guidelines for the design of MCDA-assisted group decision processes. We conclude with thoughts on promising application domains and future research topics. ()
