COMPARATIVE STUDY OF SOME MCDM TECHNIQUES FOR E-COMMERCE APPLICATIONS

Dr. Sharmistha Roy

Abstract


Multi-Criteria Decision Making algorithm is an act of choosing best action among several alternatives. E-commerce application has been widely accepted for business activities because of its low cost and a wide range of coverage. AHP, TOPSIS, and PROMETHEE are some of the Multi Criteria Decision Making techniques popularly accepted to solve the decision problem and record the variations lies in ranking a level. This paper presents a comparative study of some Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) techniques for ranking, by taking into consideration an E-commerce application as a case study.

Keywords
