Description

MRSort is a simplified ELECTRE-TRI approach which assigns alternatives to a set of ordered categories using delimiting profiles evaluations. In addition, veto profiles may also be used in order to circumvent a sufficient majority coalition in favor of an alternative being assigned to a certain category. This method is used to identify which veto profiles evaluations have an impact on the final assignment of at least one of the input alternatives.

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

A vector containing the category to which each alternative is assigned. The vector needs to be named using the alternatives IDs.

categoriesRanks

A vector containing the ranks of the categories (1 for the best, with higher values for increasingly less preferred categories). The vector needs to be named with the categories names, whereas the ranks need to be a range of values from 1 to the number of 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.

majorityThreshold

The majority threshold needed to determine when a coalition of criteria is sufficient in order to validate an outranking relation.

criteriaWeights

Vector containing the weights of the criteria. The elements are named according to the IDs of the criteria.

profilesPerformances

Matrix containing, in each row, the lower profiles of the categories. The columns are named according to the criteria, and the rows are named according to the categories. The index of the row in the matrix corresponds to the rank of the category.

vetoPerformances

Matrix containing in each row a vector defining the veto values for the lower profile of the category. NA values mean that no veto is defined. A veto threshold for criterion i and category k represents the performance below which an alternative is forbidden to outrank the lower profile of category k, and thus is forbidden to be assigned to the category k. The rows are named according to the categories, whereas the columns are named according to the criteria.

alternativesIDs

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

criteriaIDs

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

Value

The function returns a matrix containing TRUE/FALSE inficators for each evaluation of the veto profiles.
