Abstract

By studying the way a previous study is using utility function with multi-choice goal programming (MCGP), some drawbacks are identified. These drawbacks can mistakenly result in an incomplete representativeness of the original MCGP with utility functions model and thus lead to the inability of the model to appropriately assess and express the real preference structure of a decision maker (DM). This study recommends some points and proposes another ways of using utility functions with MCGP. These new ways are validated by using them to express different DM preference structures pertaining to a goal, which underlies his/her real oral statements during decision making.
