Abstract

In this paper four commercial software packages for multi-criteria resource allocation are analyzed: Equity, HiPriority, Logical Decisions Portfolio and Expert Choice Resource Aligner. The key technical distinction concerns the type of resource allocation procedure used: Equity uses the benefit-to-cost ratio approach, HiPriority also uses the benefit-to-cost ratio approach and an exhaustive enumeration approach, whereas Logical Decisions Portfolio and Expert Choice Resource Aligner use a mathematical programming approach.
