Abstract: In this paper, the problematic of MCDM methods evaluation is treated, we study in particular the behaviour of the criteria (tests) measuring the performance of these methods. Indeed, a critical study toward the series of tests proposed by Triantaphyllou is carried out. On this basis, some impossibility results are defined. In addition, a new assessment test is proposed.
Keywords: MCDM methods; performance evaluation; preference modelling; multicriteria analysis; series of tests; independence property; transitivity property.
