Abstract

Multi-criteria decision making techniques are widely used today. In this study, it was examined the current usage areas of ELECTRE and PROMETHEE, which are in the class of outranking-based multiple criteria decision techniques, in Turkey and the world. In this regard, the studies carried out in 2016 and the first four months of 2017 were scanned with the help of Google Scholar. Thus, it is aimed to put forward the latest state of development of ELECTRE and PROMETHEE, and to give an idea about their future application forms and fields. As a result, it was seen that application problems of ELECTRE and PROMETHEE in various fields was tried to remove, and designed appropriate methods for special cases in studies. Furthermore, evaluation according to scenario variations, solving complex decision problems with metaheuristics, common usage of hesitant fuzzy implementations, proliferation of group decision preference, increasing the number of applications of hybrid techniques, used softwares, sensitivity analyses, two linguistic approaches taking an important place in fuzzification have been identified as remarkable results.

ELECTRE ve PROMETHEE'nin Güncel Uygulama Alanları: Bir Alanyazın Taraması


Öz

Çok kriterli karar verme teknikleri günümüzde oldukça yaygın olarak kullanılmaktadır. Bu çalışmada çok kriterli karar verme tekniklerinin üstünlük tabanlı sınıfında yer alan ELECTRE ve PROMETHEE’nin Türkiye ve Dünyadaki güncel kullanım alanları incelenmiştir. Bu bağlamda 2016 yılı ve 2017 yılı ilk dört ayında gerçekleştirilen çalışmalar Google Scholar yardımıyla taranmıştır. Böylelikle ELECTRE ve PROMETHEE’nin gelişimindeki son durumun ortaya konulması ve gelecekteki uygulama biçim ve alanları hakkında fikir verilmesi amaçlanmıştır. Sonuç olarak çalışmalarda, ELECTRE ve PROMETHEE’nin çeşitli alanlardaki uygulama problemlerinin ortadan kaldırılmaya çalışıldığı, özel durumlara uygun yöntemler tasarlandığı görülmüştür. Ayrıca senaryo farklılaşmalarına göre değerlendirme yapılması, metasezgiseller ile karmaşık karar problemlerinin çözülmesi, kararsız bulanık uygulamalarının yaygınlaşması, grup kararı tercihinin artması, hibrid tekniklerin uygulama sayısının fazlalaşması, kullanılan yazılımlar, duyarlılık analizleri, bulanıklaştırmada iki dilsel yaklaşımının önemli yer edinmesi dikkat çekici sonuçlar olarak tespit edilmiştir.
