Weighted Product Method : A brief introduction

  1. 1. Weighted Product Method Dr. Mrinmoy Majumder Course Name : Intro to Multi Criteria Decision Making Methods Lecture No.08 out of 15 https://opticlasses.teachable.com Follow me on : RG : Mrinmoy Majumder Twitter : kuttu80 Founding Honorary Editor http://www.baipatra.ws http://www.energyinstyle.website
  2. 2. What is Weighted Product Method • In decision making problems, the Weighted Product Model or Method(WPM) is an attempt to one alternative out ranking the other alternative.(Bridgman,1922) • It is similar to the weighted sum model (WSM). The main difference is that instead of addition in the main mathematical operation now there is multiplication wj denotes the relative weight of importance of the criterion Cj and aij is the performance value of alternative Ai when it is evaluated in terms of criterion Cj. Then, if one wishes to compare the two alternatives AK and AL (where m ≥ K, L ≥ 1) then, the following product has to be calculated:[ Reference : Bridgman, P.W. (1922). Dimensional Analysis. New Haven, CT, U.S.A.: Yale University Press.
  3. 3. How it Works ?
  4. 4. Example of ANP Decision Goal : To buy a car Criteria : Cost and Speed Alternatives : Mercedes Benz(M), Jaguar(J), Toyota(T) Aggregation Methods to be used : Weighted Product Method
  5. 5. Example Contd. • If importance of Cost is more compared to the importance of Speed with respect to the goal of the decision making, i.e., buying a car. The value of alternatives with respect to cost and speed was normalized(value/sum of all values).Here Cost is a non-preferred criteria as more the cost of the alternative less will it be preferred choice of selection Goal : Buy a car Cost (Relative Weight : 0.667) Speed (Relative Weight : 0.333) Sum of the product function of Relative Weight of Criteria and the value of the alternative for that criteria A (WSM Score) Rank based on importance M 0.500 0.200 (0.5/0.3)^0.667x(0.2/0.5) ^0.333 1.036 2 J 0.300 0.500 (0.3/0.2)^0.667x(0.5/0.3) ^0.333 1.554 1 T 0.200 0.300 (0.2/0.5)^0.667x(0.3/0.2) ^0.333 0.621 3
