### Abstract

[This chapter starts with the formulation of a case containing enough information to illustrate the construction of the decision matrix and problem solving. Probably the most valuable feature of this example is the thorough analysis performed when using several objective functions. The idea is to demonstrate the wealth of infor­mation that can be extracted from the model and how it can detect if there have been shortcomings in establishing the mathematical model. It also reveals how the information provided can help the DM in making clear that some concepts are worth reviewing in the light of information that cast a doubt about early stage concepts. It finalizes with analysis of how weights assigned to the diverse objectives may affect the solution.]
