Visualizing decision-making from a scientific point of view
Expansion of choice leads inherently to glaring complex decision making. We need to frame the rules of the game with it's manifold options. Making decisions is about reaching consensus. Through scoring criteria and by ranking them against preferences and goals, we reduce the amount of choice towards a specific solution.
Multicriterial Decision Aid helps people to reduce the amount of choice and facilitates the decision making process in complex and ill-strutured scenarios, by focusing on the resolution of multiple and conflicting criteria. We should make that science visible.
For our MCDA Toolkit DECYS, we developed a visual identity that is based on the scientific visual language known within graphs and diagrams in operational research, like Pareto analysis, and Multicriterial decision aid (MCDA).
