ELECTRE Method for the Selection of ALL ROUND EXCELLENCE AWARD-an Illustration


Multi The present study gives an application of Multi Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) methods for the selection of a branch of student for ALL ROUND EXCELLENCE AWARD of an engineering college by Elimination and Choice Translating Reality (ELECTRE) method with an illustration. ELECTRE method is one of the MCDM methods. This method is also a ranking method which gives the leading alternative by which we can chose best decisions to our problems. In the opinion of Evangelos Triantaphyllou ELECTRE method gives the fastest solution. In this regard this method is chosen in the present cut throat competitive study. ELECTRE method is used in many fields to obtain the best decisions to their complex situations. Its significance has reached the crux. In this wake many methods like ELECTRE 1, ELECTRE 2… have come into existence to bring out the best result. But in this present study we applied only ELECTRE method to the mentioned problem. Here seven criteria are chosen in which few criteria have sub criteria and identified five branches as alternatives. Hence it is analysed that the student of ECE branch has been selected for the award. 

Keywords: A Multi Criteria Decision Making Method, Consistency, Elimination and Choice Translating Reality (ELECTRE), Ranking
