Abstract

The increase in Multi criteria decision-making studies is reflecting its importance as an interested area for research. Even though a high number of revealed studies mainly in last decade, still this field have challenges that require attentions from researchers in future. Most of MCDM related studies did not consider determining DM weights or using subjective methods, and there is an absence of implementing sensitivity analysis to DM weights as well. In addition to the need to develop new methods that utilizing the web or mobile technologies to deal with complexity and uncertainty adhered to MCDM problems. This paper represents a trial to list current challenges in this field as areas of interest for researchers in future studies that aims to enhance the quality and effectiveness of decision-making process.
