ELECTRE methods are not compensatory, a high degree of dissatisfaction regarding the performance of one alternative compared to another for one specific criterion may not necessarily be compensated for by good performance with regard to the other remaining criteria. It may therefore happen that the alternatives differ so widely from one another that the decision-maker is unable to express a preference as they are not comparable. 1 ELECTRE III The distinctive characteristic of ELECTRE III is its ability to handle a data-set affected by a high degree of uncertainty.

Next, for each couple of actions a, b ∈ K , we first define a preference index for a with regard to b over all the criteria. 11) h=1 be such a preference index, which gives a measure of the preference of a over b for all the criteria. The closer to 1, the greater the preference. Step 3. Construct the valued outranking graph The values obtained in Step 2 determine the valued outranking graph, the nodes of which are the actions of K, so that for all a, b ∈ K , the arc (a, b) has the value π(a, b).

ELECTRE methods are based on the partial aggregation of preferences, which is based on the principle that the decision-maker is not perfectly rational and can therefore express, for each pair of actions (a and b), not only the preference (P) or indifference (I) toward one action or the other, but also a less marked preference labeled ‘weak’ (Q) or a situation of incomparability (R). ELECTRE methods are not compensatory, a high degree of dissatisfaction regarding the performance of one alternative compared to another for one specific criterion may not necessarily be compensated for by good performance with regard to the other remaining criteria.
