Compared with other MCDM
methods, the PROMETHEE method has remarkable advantages in conceptualization simplicity (Brans, Vincke, and Mareschal 1986) and transparent computational procedure (Behzadian et al.
Compromise solution by MCDM

Chakraborty and Zavadskas (2014) explored WASPAS method as an effective MCDM
tool while solving eight manufacturing decision making problems.
ARAS, first introduced by Zavadskas and Turskis (2010), is a branch of the MCDM
techniques that solve a complex problem by using simple relative comparisons.
Using an integrated MCDM
model for mining method selection in presence of uncertainty, Ekonomska istrazivanja--Economic Research 25(4): 869-904.
has been one of the fastest growing problem areas in many disciplines.
In this paper, we propose an integrated approach based on fuzzy AHP and COPRAS to solve MCDM
problems in which the weights of criteria and the performance ratings of alternatives are calculated based on linguistics terms.
Uses of this method in different sciences have made AHP as one of the most common MCDM
applicable methods (Vaidya and Kumar, 2006).
Nevertheless, similar data can also be analyzed using other MCDM
method as listed previously in order to determine the consistency of the decision obtained using the TOPSIS method, thus may further increase the level of confidence gained from the exercise.
A hybrid MCDM
model encompassing AHP and COPRAS-G methods for selecting company supplier in Iran, Technological and Economic Development of Economy 18(3): 529-543.
In this paper, we try to tackle the fund allocation problem by a MCDM
technique called COPRAS.
for heritage assessment presents the area of active research, which receives an increasing attention; however, so far there has been no single generally accepted system for multi-criteria heritage assessment (Fairclough et al.
