Description

MRSort is a simplified ElectreTRI method that uses the pessimistic assignment rule, without indifference or preference thresholds attached to criteria. LPDMRSort considers both a binary discordance and a binary concordance conditions including several interactions between them. The identification of the profiles, weights, majority threshold and veto thresholds is done by taking into account assignment examples.

LPDMRSortInferenceApprox(performanceTable, criteriaMinMax, categoriesRanks, assignments,
                         majorityRules = c("M","V","D","v","d","dV","Dv","dv"),
                         alternativesIDs = NULL, criteriaIDs = NULL,
                         timeLimit = 60, populationSize = 20, mutationProb = 0.1)

Arguments

performanceTable

Matrix or data frame containing the performance table. Each row corresponds to an alternative, and each column to a criterion. Rows (resp. columns) must be named according to the IDs of the alternatives (resp. criteria).

assignments

Vector containing the assignments (IDs of the categories) of the alternatives to the categories. The elements are named according to the alternatives.

categoriesRanks

Vector containing the ranks of the categories. The elements are named according to the IDs of the categories.

criteriaMinMax

Vector containing the preference direction on each of the criteria. "min" (resp. "max") indicates that the criterion has to be minimized (maximized). The elements are named according to the IDs of the criteria.

majorityRules

A vector containing the different type of majority rules to be considered ("M", "V", "D", "v", "d", "dV", "Dv", "dv"). "M" corresponds to using only the majority rule without vetoes or dictators, "V" considers only the vetoes, "D" only the dictators, "v" is like "V" only that a dictator may invalidate a veto, "d" is like "D" only that a veto may invalidate a dictator, "dV" is like "V" only that if there is no veto we may then consider the dictator, "Dv" is like "D" only that when there is no dictator we may consider the vetoes, while finally "dv" is identical to using both dictator and vetoes only that when both are active they invalidate each other, so the majority rule is considered in that case.

alternativesIDs

Vector containing IDs of alternatives, according to which the data should be filtered.

criteriaIDs

Vector containing IDs of criteria, according to which the data should be filtered.

timeLimit

Allows to fix a time limit of the execution, in seconds (default 60).

populationSize

Allows to change the size of the population used by the genetic algorithm (default 20).

mutationProb

Allows to change the mutation probability used by the genetic algorithm (default 0.1).

Value

The function returns a list containing:

majorityThreshold

The inferred majority threshold (single numeric value).

criteriaWeights

The inferred criteria weights (a vector named with the criteria IDs).

majorityRule

A string corresponding to the inferred majority rule (one of "M", "V", "D", "v", "d", "dV", "Dv", "dv").

profilesPerformances

The inferred category limits (a matrix with the column names given by the criteria IDs and the rownames given by the upper categories each profile delimits).

vetoPerformances

The inferred vetoes (a matrix with the column names given by the criteria IDs and the rownames given by the categories to which each profile applies).

dictatorPerformances

The inferred dictators (a matrix with the column names given by the criteria IDs and the rownames given by the categories to which each profile applies).

fitness

The classification accuracy of the inferred model (from 0 to 1).
