ADDIS software suite updated

11 Dec 2019 — Kārlis Zālīte

In parallel to maintaining and upgrading our public software we have developed an initial Enterprise version of our web-based Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) tool. This version is commercially licensed and offers expanded functionality:

  • Sign-in with non-Google credentials
  • User rights management
  • SMAA analysis using several preference scenarios

Please contact us for further details, to purchase a license, or to submit feature requests.

We have also developed procedures (besides the existing ones for Linux and docker containers) to deploy our tools in the following environments:

  • Kubernetes
  • Microsoft Windows (requires Docker or Docker toolbox)

A summary of features and bug fixes:


  • User can now archive a dataset
  • Minor bugfixes


  • Manual input redesign:
    • A data source is no longer automatically created when adding a criterion
    • Input of unit of measurement, strength of evidence, and uncertainties now moved to step 2
    • Alternatives can now be edited after adding
    • Separate the effects table into a deterministic and a SMAA tab.
    • Ability to automatically generate distributions for the SMAA tab using values entered in the Deterministic tab
    • Support free text in cells
    • Support range effects and distributions
    • Where possible, during analysis subtitute missing values with ones from the other tab
  • Redesign unit of measurement to have three options:
    • Proportion (decimal), with values between 0 and 1
    • Proportion (percentage), with values between 0 and 100
    • Custom, with user-defined bounds
  • Redesigned workspace settings
  • Each data source can now have its own unit of measurement
  • On the Overview tab, effects table is no longer displayed. Instead, criteria and datasources are displayed in a similar way to the manual input. In addition, the available measurements are displayed for each datasource and alternative.
  • Cells not useable for analysis are now highlighted in the effects table if ‘Values used for analysis’ option is selected
  • On the Preferences tab, added a button to reset the weight preferences
  • On the SMAA tab, the user can now set whether to consider uncertainty in measurements and weights (if possible)
  • On the SMAA tab, added the Measurements table containing the input for the analysis
  • The SMAA tab is disabled if:
    • No preferences are provided, or
    • There is no uncertainty (all measurements are deterministic and weights are provided through matching or precise swing weighting)
  • User can now adjust the width of columns in the effects table (Firefox and Chrome)
  • Bugfixes
