Abstract

Abstract

Decision making is getting more complex and difficult in our daily life and business life. However, correct and fast decision making is the first condition of managing and directing. The complexity and uncertainty in decision problems have increased as a result of technological developments and changes in consumer demands. Most of the decision problems encountered contain many criteria. Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) is to choose the most suitable alternative among many alternatives according to more than one determined criteria. Various methods have been developed for the solution of multi-criteria decision problems. ELECTRE III (ELimination Et Choice Translating REality) method, one of these methods, is one of the most widely used methods. The ELECTRE III method is a method used in the solution of decision problems involving uncertainty. In this study, the ELECTRE III method and its properties have been examined with an application. For this purpose, the problem of photocopy machine selection was examined with the ELECTRE III method in this study. The ENTROPY method was used to determine the weights of the criteria used in the decision problem and the ELECTRE III method was used to rank the copier machine options.
