Problem structuring for MCDA: incorporating external expertise

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Facilitated workshops, in which a group of key stakeholders are helped to structure, build and use a multicriteria model, are a common and effective approach to MCDA. However, often it is not possible to bring together all those with relevant expertise and ownership. This talk will describe and reflect on the lessons learned from two case studies which have used different ways of sourcing expert input to inform the building of multicriteria models to be used by others, one associated with the UNEP MCA4Climate Project and the other the EPSRC Highly Distributed Energy Futures Project.
