Working Out R&D Programs via Multicriteria Analysis

Authors: A. Shpak, D. Zaporojan
Keywords: R & D project selection, multicriteria analysis

Abstract

This paper describes the development of a decision support system, which was worked out to analyse and to select Research and Development (R & D) projects. A brief survey of R & D project selection methodologies and aspects is given. The described DSS was constructed round the approach, where ranking is used to generate numerical values for each project. Then the problem of R & D project selection becomes a knapsack problem. Its specific aspect depends on the financing policy selected by the decision maker. A final section provides an overview of some practical implementations of multicriterial decision aids made by OR Group of Institute of Mathematics of Moldavian Academy of Sciences.
