2 Slide Decision Making with Multiple Criteria In the previous chapters we focused on making decisions by optimizing a single objective . In many situations, there are several relevant but usually conflicting objectives. It is usually difficult to combine all the objectives into one single objective. Unlike in the single-objective problems for which you have an optimal solution, in multi-objective problems, there are usually many “efficient” solutions for the decision-maker to consider.
3 Slide Efficient Solutions We say a feasible solution B dominates a feasible solution A if B is no worse than A with respect to every objective and B is strictly better than A with respect to at least one objective. Solution A is called efficient if no other feasible solution dominates A .

4 Slide Efficient Frontier The decision maker can limit his/her choices to only efficient solutions. When only two objectives exist, if we graph the objective values for the efficient solutions (in two dimensions), we obtain a trade-off curve , also called the efficient frontier .
5 Slide Trade-off Curve for Two Objectives When maximizing both objectives: Objective 2 Objective 1 Dominated Solutions Efficient Frontier B A

6 Slide Click to edit Master subtitle style Example 1 A client has \$80,000 to invest. He wants his investment portfolio to be restricted to two stocks. Estimated Annual Risk Stock Price/Share Return/Share Index/Share US Oil \$25 \$3 0.50 Bisco \$50 \$5 0.25 The client wants to maximize the annual return from his investments. The c lient also wants to avoid high risk.
7 Slide Example-cont’d Some Alternatives (feasible solutions): 1. Purchase only US Oil shares (\$80,000/\$25= 3200 shares). 2. Purchase only Bisco shares (\$80,000/\$50= 1600 shares).

8 Slide Example-cont’d More Alternatives (feasible solutions): 3. Invest \$20,000 in US Oil (purchase 800 shares) and \$60,000 in Bisco (purchase 1200 shares). 4. Invest \$25,000 in US Oil (purchase 1000 shares) and \$50,000 in Bisco (purchase 1000) shares Which of these solutions, if any, are dominated?
