Examples of multiple criteria ranking in the design of cellular networks of mobile telecommunication

Edward Klimasara, Andrzej P. Wierzbicki


The paper addresses planning and design of contemporary networks of mobile telecommunication, where an existing network is subject to far reaching development and modication, thus evolution with diverse requirements of users and diverse density of network cells. This leads to considering diverse variants of network designs. When several variants of network designs are available, an investor might ask for a ranking of these variants. The investor is obviously not bounded by the results of such a ranking and might select a variant not highest in the ranking, but an objectied ranking might help in the selection.
Therefore, the paper presents the way of computing and examples of objectied multiple criteria ranking, possibly not requiring the determination of weighting coecients.
