Background/Objectives: Today, to help decision-makers in the decision-making process, researchers have been increasingly inclined to using soft operational research techniques to create an atmosphere of participation. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: One technique for making the decision-making process simpler and more flexible is the robustness analysis. Considering robustness analysis as a two-dimensional analysis of the desired and acceptable results and unacceptable and disastrous results to achieve more flexibility and also stronger decision, this paper presents a threedimensional model in which the th ird dimension is the lack of making an initial decision or lack of entering into a decision area. Results: The results of this analysis, which is a case study conducted in Iran, show that the introduction of the third dimension in the robustness analysis can change the results obtained by the two-dimensional robustness analysis. Conclusion/Application: The results of this study may provide comprehensive insight into the conditions and dimensions affecting the outcomes of making a decision.
