Most of data in a multi attribute decision making (MADM) problem are unstable and changeable, and thus sensitivity analysis can effectively contribute to making proper decisions. Here, we offer a new method for sensitivity analysis of multi-attribute decision making problems so that by changing one element of decision making matrix, we can determine changes in the results of a decision making problem. An analysis is made for simple additive weighting method (SAW) technique, a mostly used multi-attribute decision making techniques, and the corresponding formulas are obtained.
Keywords: Multi-attribute decision making (MADM), SAW Technique, Sensitivity analysis, Ranking methods, Attribute weights
