MCDA web app updated

01 Nov 2013 — Gert van Valkenhoef

We have just updated our web based multiple criteria decision analysis (MCDA) preference elicitation tool. This component will be used in ADDIS 2.0 to support benefit-risk decisions. It is currently available online at The new features include:

  • Workspaces and scenarios: store the intermediate results of preference elicitation in your browser.
  • Overview: shows the elicited preference information in one place.
  • Exact SWING: preference elicitation leading to an exact weighting.
  • Extensive refactoring of the client-side code and many bugfixes on both the client and server side.

You will need a recent browser; we recommend Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Several examples are provided. You can also load your own benefit-risk assessments by exporting them from ADDIS 1.16.4 or later. We would be glad to hear your feedback.
