Scoring model: This model selects an alternative which has the highest score (or the maximum utility). Simple additive weighting, hierarchical additive weighting and interactive simple additive weighting belong to this model.
Compromising model: This model selects an alternative, which is closest
to the ideal solution: TOPSIS , LINMAP and nonmetric MDS belong to this category.
This model arranges a set of preference rankings, which satisfies a given
concordance measure. Permutation method, linear assignment method, and
ELECTRE are considered to be in this model.
