Integrating Approximation and Interactive Decision Making in Multicriteria Optimization
We present a new interactive hybrid approach for solving multicriteria optimization problems where features of approximation methods and interactive approaches are incorporated. We produce rough approximations of the nondominated set and let the decision maker indicate with the help of reference points where to refine the approximation. In this way, (s)he iteratively directs the search towards the best nondominated solution. After the decision maker has identified the most interesting region of the nondominated set, the final solution can be fine-tuned with existing interactive methods. We suggest different ways of updating the reference point as well as discuss visualizations that can be used in comparing different nondominated solutions. The new method is computationally relatively inexpensive and easy to use for the decision maker. Subject classifications: Programming: Multiple Criteria. Nonlinear. Interactive Methods. Reference Point Area of review: Optimization
