Seven Research Area where MCDMs are used for better results
Most Popular Research Areas of MCDM
The use of MCDMs, or Multi-Criteria Decision Making Methods*, in various aspects of research has increased dramatically in recent years. The total number of papers on MCDMs is 1298 in 2022, compared to only 51 in 1999. That translates to a 25.45-fold increase in the number of research papers published in journals of Elsevier Publishers.
If we categorize the papers based on the objective of MCDM application, we can broadly divide the published papers into the seven perspectives listed below. MCDMs are used for other purposes as well, but the number of papers on those topics is limited.
